In brief

Oklahoma City

Eatery will donate to MS

S&B’s Burger Joint will donate 10 percent of its daily proceeds at the 20 NW 9 location Tuesday to Team Pardee and Walk MS. Team Pardee was started by Jenny Pardee along with her friends and family shortly after her diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in 2011. All funds raised by Team Pardee go to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, which provides assistance to multiple sclerosis patients and funds research to find a cure. Team Pardee raised nearly $10,000 at a crawfish boil held last month. Registration is open for Walk MS: Oklahoma City 2014, set for May 3 at Wild Horse Park in Mustang. Visit walkMSok.org to register to walk, volunteer or to make a donation.
