Shane’s Rib Shack in Cleveland Towne Center is donating 10 percent of all proceeds Wednesday, from 4 to 8 p.m. to the Dustin Ledford Live Wide Open Scholarship Foundation.

Heartstrings will provide live entertainment.

The annual scholarship to graduating seniors is based on athletics, the impact of drunk driving on their lives and a written essay on the dangers of drinking and driving.

Dustin Ledford, 24, the son of Danny and Kim Ledford, was killed July 10, 2010, in a head-on crash on APD 40 shortly after 911 dispatchers issued a “Be On the Lookout” for a vehicle traveling north in the southbound lane.

His parents, Danny and Kim Ledford, established the legacy fund in 2011.

According to reports, Tiffany Levi Isaza, 29, drove a 2002 Ford Taurus in the wrong direction along APD 40. Her car struck Ledford’s 1990 Toyota Camry head-on as he drove home from Walmart.

Isaza was sentenced to a total of 10 years in prison; one year each for two counts of child abuse, neglect and endangerment; and eight years for vehicular homicide. She was denied parole in October.
