There are also sponsorships available for the clay shoot stations at $100 each, with the business’ logo displayed at the sponsored station. The clay shoot will begin at 2 p.m.

“It’s a good cause,” Gregory said. “This is something that affects everybody; whether the money goes to the cancer center or the hospital needs it for something else. Troy Regional Medical Center is a big part of our community and we want to make sure our community has the best hospital possible.”

Tickets to see the Tams perform can also be purchased individually. Single tickets are $100 each while tickets for couples are $150 total. Tickets can be picked up at Premier in Troy. The tickets also include a steak and shrimp dinner prepared by Yanni Tempelis of Pig Café and Francesca’s. The dinner concert will also feature a cash bar and silent auction to raise funds for the foundation.

There are also corporate tables available for $1,000 which include eight tickets for the band party and logo advertisement on the corporate table sponsors banner at the event.

The dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. with the Tams to begin at 7 p.m.

All checks should be made payable to the Pike Medical Foundation. The Foundation is a (501)c3 and all donations are tax-deductible.

The new cancer center that opened in December 2018, with the help of a $100,000 contribution by the Pike Medical Foundation, now sees approximately 130 patients a month and offers chemotherapy, iron and adjunct therapies all here in Troy.

The farm is located at 221 County Road 7745 in Needmore.
