BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- Friends of the Forum will honor the late Tim Ward through a special induction ceremony to the Wall of Stars at the Broome County Forum Theater Thursday evening.
The community has been invited to attend the event at 7 p.m. at the Forum, but tickets have been sold out. Proceeds from the ceremony will benefit a Broome County Forum Theater project that will be created and dedicated to Ward.
Ward died from cancer in 2020.
The event will honor the life and community contributions of Ward as an advocate and promoter of local musicians. Ward was also a member of the Broome County Celtic Pipes & Drum Band since 1990. He owned McGirk's Irish Pub in Chenango Bridge.
Attendees of the ceremony will be treated to remarks from community leaders, tributes to Ward and refreshments.
