ANN ARBOR – Pancreatic cancer is the third-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, according to Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN).

On Tuesday, June 7, Tree Town residents can support the nonprofit and advocacy organization through a benefit concert at The Ark.

Michigan native Rob Massard will perform his meditative progressive folk starting at 8 p.m.

Tickets cost $10. A portion of proceeds will go to PanCAN, which provides resources and support for those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and their caregivers. The organization helps to fund cancer research and advocates for increased federal research funding.

Find tickets here.

At 316 S. Main St., the Ark currently requires concert-goers to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination and must be masked when not eating or drinking.
