LANSING, Ill. (July 1, 2018) — Elvis Tribute Artist Joe Tirrito will perform a benefit concert on Friday, August 3, 2018, on behalf of the Parents & Friends of LARC. The event will be held at the Knights of Columbus Hall, located at 178th and Lorenz Avenue in Lansing, Illinois.

Tickets are already on sale. The $20.00 tickets price includes a buffet-style dinner prior to the show. Coffee, tea, and water will be provided, and a cash bar will be available. Space is limited, and seating is reserved, so tickets must be purchased in advance; they will not be sold at the door.

The Parents & Friends of LARC provide support to families affected by the challenges associated with caring for someone with developmental disabilities. They also provide holiday luncheons to LARC clients.

Elvis Tribute Artist Joe Tirrito developed a love for Elvis Presley music through the hours he spent listening to the radio with his truck-driving father. Tirrito has been performing his tribute for 28 years, and his show has taken him to Japan, the Bahamas, Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, Washington D.C, and Memphis. He has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show and the Geraldo Rivera Show.
