We welcome you to join us for “Rock the 80’s,” a benefit concert for the Bob Perks Cancer Assistance Fund at The State Theatre. Enjoy a spectacular evening of music while raising funds to support local cancer patients who receive financial support from the Bob Perks Fund. When local cancer patients face tough decisions on whether to feed their families, heat their homes or pay for medical expenses, the Bob Perks Fund steps in to help pay for basic necessities so cancer patients can worry less and focus on their treatment and recovery.

The Totally Rad Reception at the Kish Expect More Store – Allen Street, offers complimentary beer, wine and an array of appetizers. The event is scheduled from 5pm to 6:30 pm and guests must be age 21 to attend. Reception tickets are limited.
