The LiveLikeKatie Foundation describes this month's Cancerpalooza as a musical fundraising extravaganza. It takes place at Maryknoll Park in Glen Ellyn from 2 to 10:30 p.m. Saturday, September 21, with an early ticket purchase discount offered until Sept. 15.
Cancerpalooza will be a continuous live music festival including various artists and bands. Tap House restaurateur Danny Wronkowski will serve food and refreshments.
LLK, established to honor the memory of Katie Vogg, a longtime resident of Glen Ellyn who died in 2011 from a rare form of cancer, is committed to raising money for cancer research. In establishing LLK, it became her family and friends’ mission to follow her examples of goodness and unselfish service, and do everything in their power to eradicate cancer as a life-threatening disease.
Admission to the event costs $40 prior to Sept. 15, and $50 after that date. Tickets represent a donation to the LLK Foundation, and are deductible as applicable. Organizers say proceeds are earmarked for the University of Chicago Cancer Research Center, under the direction of Dr. Daniel Catenacci.
