Fun things to do in the Panhandle this week:
FRIENDS OF FOGELBERG
One out of six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in the course of their lifetime, and it is the second leading cause of death from cancer in men. In order to bring awareness to this disease and to raise money for the Harrington Cancer Center, join the Friends of Fogelberg for their concert at the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts TONIGHT at 7:30pm. Hosted by one of our dear friends, Dr. Richard Kibbey (a prostate cancer survivor himself), and featuring local music talent including Anderson, Flesher and Key, Insufficient Funds, The Soul Breakers, and many more! $15 tickets (what at steal!) available at Panhandle Tickets.
