November 2, 2019, six tribute artists join forces to bring awareness in the fight against breast cancer

On November 2nd, Crestview Country Club in Agawam, Ma will play host to a unique music event and dinner featuring six of the region’s favorite tribute acts.  THE GREAT PRETENDERS will be emceed by Jimmy Mazz with the proceeds from the show to benefit the patients of Mercy Medical Center Breast Cancer Unit.  

This event first began in 2016, when The Great Pretenders performed and donated $12,000 directly to the patients of Mercy’s Breast Cancer Unit.  2016 was even more successful with a donation of $16,000.  Last year we brought our total to $45,000.  Our goal this year is to raise $20,000.  The donations go to patient needs like buying their groceries, paying the rent or bills they may be behind on, even purchasing wigs, which are not normally covered by insurance. 

Appearing will be, in no particular order, Steve Kareta and the Eagles Experience, Rick Larrimore (Rod Stewart), Linda Carter (Cher), Ray Guillemet (Ray of Elvis) Mike Miller (Paul McCartney) and Greg Ransom (Elton John).  All of the performers will be accompanied by live music courtesy of The Diamond Collection.  

Doors open at 5:00 p.m., dinner is at 6:00 pm and the show starts at 7:300 pm.   There will be auctions and raffles.  Admission is $80 pp and includes full plated dinner and reserved seating.
