Benefit planned for Grand Forks murder victim’s family

A memorial benefit ride for the family of Jose “Joe” Lopez will be held Sept. 6, starting in Grand Forks and making stops around the region.

Lopez died in June after being shot in his Grand Forks apartment, and two men have been charged in connection to his murder.

Ride participants are asked to donate $10 per motorcycle or other vehicle and $5 per rider. Money will go to support Lopez’s family. Registration will begin at 11 a.m. at the Bun Lounge, 1708 Mill Road.
