He organizes a yearly fundraising event called BourbonHAM, where people come to enjoy bourbon, a delicious barbecue and live music. The event, which is now in its second year, was held on Sunday, January 22 and initial figures show the event was attended by twice as many people as last year and could raise approximately $60,000.

Thorne will donate the money to the MS Society to be used to help some of the 4,700 people who have multiple sclerosis in Alabama. The funds will help provide vital mobility aids such as wheelchairs, ramps and other equipment needed to improve everyday life. Read more about this story from here.
