Tony Perolio Benefit Concert to Drum up Support for Leukemia Research
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is a nonprofit health organization that funds blood cancer research and offers patient assistance. All donations from the Jan. 26 show will go directly to LLS.
"I want to support this organization because they actually supported my friends," Crittenden says. "From what Jess has told us, LLS helped them handle some of the burden of finances during Tony's initial treatments."
"Supporting groups like the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society that are working against that sickness, that are working to treat and comfort those who are ill is one way that we all can alleviate suffering," Hardy says. "It can seem small yet is a very important and impactful act that will truly help other people."
Though the concert will honor one who has passed, fans shouldn't expect a downer of a time. Instead, Hardy plans to reflect Perolio's intensity and commitment.
"We want people to walk away full of excitement, full of music and full of the belief that everyone and anyone can change the world," Hardy says.
