An Elton John cover band will be performing in Timmins next month as a fundraiser for the Alzheimer Society of Timmins-Porcupine District.

The Toronto-based Elton Rohn band, fronted by Ron Camilleri, will perform at Charles Fournier Auditorium on Saturday, Sept. 28 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets for the concerts start from $40.74 and it’s an event open for all the ages.

Connect Marketing is hosting the Elton Rohn’s concert in Timmins in order to support the Alzheimer Society of Timmins-Porcupine District.

Alzheimer Society of Timmins-Porcupine District is a leading source of information, education, support and counselling for people suffering dementia.

Matt McGinty, event manager at the Connect Marketing, said all the profit made through the tickets for the concert will go to the Alzheimer Society.

According to the Alzheimer Society, currently 564,000 Canadians are living with dementia.

It is the second-annual event hosted by the Connect Marketing in support of the Alzheimer Society in Timmins.

Patricia Ferreira, social media and marketing coordinator, said, “I feel it’s a really great cause, all the profit will be going to people with dementia and to their caregivers and family members as well.”

“It feels amazing to be a part of the team that supports such a great cause and does events like this to help the community.”

Last year Connect Marketing hosted the Country Legends Tribute concert in Timmins in support of the Alzheimer Society.

McGuinty said, “Last year we almost had a sold-out show so this year I expect the same kind of success. And I think people really want to support the cause and then when you bring in some great entertainment.”
