A Central Point woman is organizing a bands contest Aug. 1 to raise money for brain tumor research.

The Battle of the Bands is set at noon at TouVelle Lodge, 9367 Table Rock Road, Central Point.

The event is being organized by Dayle Mallory-Bell, whose daughter, Brittney Mallory, died of a brain tumor when she was 18. She said proceeds will go to brain tumor research at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Tennessee.

Doors open at 11 a.m., and bands will play from noon to 6 p.m. An auction is planned.

Mallory-Bell also organizes a 50-mile motorcycle poker ride and auction each October in her daughter’s memory.
