This concert is truly about ‘Neighbors Helping Neighbors’ – starting with the lead performer, Mr. Tisdel. “Mark continues to demonstrate his passion for this community by performing for us each year,” said Kathy Losinski, Executive Director. “Folks can come out and enjoy his talent and at the same time help our neighbors who are in financial crisis,” said Losinski. “Although the economy has turned around for some, there are still many families struggling to heat their homes and put food on the table. We are seeing an increase in homeless families coming to us for assistance.” Losinski also noted that it is through the support of local businesses that Neighborhood House is able to take care of those in need. Special thanks go to the concert’s Platinum Sponsor Guardian Angel Cemetery and Silver Sponsors Dillman and Upton, Pixley Funeral Home, Potere-Modetz Funeral Home and Ray Lighting Centers for supporting this event. “Quite a bit of Broadway” will feature vocalist Jennifer Kincer and pianist Stephan Pawl accompanying Mr. Tisdel.
