BogerFEST, the inaugural fundraising event from the Burke Boger Foundation, will take place at 5 Paces Inn in Buckhead on Friday, September 6, will include live entertainment, food from popular Atlanta restaurants, including Publik Draft House (P.D.H.), and drink specials.
Boger's death was believed to be a suicide by Atlanta Police. The 32-year-old was beloved throughout Atlanta for his outgoing and friendly personality and was educated at Westminster Schools, where he first began performing.
“BogerFEST is a celebration of the life of Burke Boger, my friend and someone I consider one of the most giving people I have ever met,” stated Mick Ryan, BogerFEST organizer, in a release. “Burke’s friends created the Burke Burger Foundation to not only celebrate who Burke was, but also to give back to a cause he cared so much about. We invite everyone to join us in a fun evening to help us raise funds to support cancer research in Atlanta.”
