‘Dueling Against Cancer’ to Raise Support Through Song, Comedy
For the City-Times
Dueling Pianos is headed back to Plover for a night of comedy, music and improv to benefit Marshfield Clinic cancer patients and their families.
The Fourth Annual Dueling Against Cancer returns to Memories, 2811 Plover Springs Drive, on Thursday, March 6. The event will showcase the piano talents of David Charles Eichholz and Ted Manderfeld. The duo’s program, on dueling pianos, mixes in a variety of music – classic rock, country, rap and show tunes – and includes audience participation and parodies. The evening begins at 6 p.m. with a social, followed by entertainment at 7:30 p.m.
Proceeds will benefit the Marshfield Clinic WINGS Cancer Survivorship Program and Stevens Point Cancer Care Fund. The event is presented by Michael Smith & Associates, a private wealth advisory practice of Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc.
“As retirement advisors, my team and I have seen quite a few clients and their families deal with a cancer diagnosis,” said Michael Smith, Ameriprise. “Supporting WINGS and the Stevens Point Cancer Care Fund at Marshfield Clinic is a great way to support Stevens Point-area families battling cancer and that’s why we feel privileged to promote and support Dueling Against Cancer. The event is a lot of fun and a way to help friends and neighbors who may be fighting for their lives.”
