The late Royal Marshall left behind a wife and two little girls. A special memorial fund has been set up in his name to help them out.
The Punchline Comedy Club, where Marshall dabbled in stand-up comedy over the years, will be holding a benefit in his name at 5 p.m. March 6. Tickets are $50 each and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the memorial fund.
Among those scheduled to speak: Marshall’s boss Neal Boortz, traffic reporter Mark Arum, Dave FM’s Mara Davis and Jimmy Baron, 680/The Fan’s John Kincade, Rock 100.5’s Eric Von Haessler and 94.9/The Bull’s Kristen Gates.
Marshall spent about 17 years at AM750 and now 95.5FM News/Talk WSB, most of that working with Boortz. He died unexpectedly last month of a heart attack.
You can buy tickets at www.punchline.com.
To mail a donation the address is: “Royal Marshall Memorial Education Fund“, Wells Fargo, 1601 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta, Ga. 30309.
