  • | 8:00pm - | Arts and Entertainment, Fleetwood Mac rock concert tusklamp theatre
    - TUSK covers all the great hits of Fleetwood Mac, which has featured the talents of Mick Fleetwood, Christine and John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and others over the years. The five seasoned, well-respected musicians comprising TUSK have been making music together in various combinations and styles, in original outfits and in cover bands, for over twenty-five years. It seemed only fitting that they should come together to form the Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute, and pay homage to a group that dominated the charts during the band members’ formative years.

  • | 8:00pm - | Arts and Entertainment, pure prairie league concert country rock amie
    - The band came back together in 1998 with as much of their classic line-up as they could find and some newer faces on the country and rock scenes, including future Jack White sideman Fats Kaplin. Ever since then, their live shows have taken them all over the world and their 2005 studio album “All In Good Time” has been hailed as one of the best records of their career. It’s a stunning comeback that any band of their time would kill to have, and for that, along with a back catalogue to make anyone green with envy, Pure Prairie League come highly recommended.

  • | 9:00am - 12:00pm | Charity, Fundraiser, Brain cancer, 5K, walk, run, glioblastomia, UPCI
    - Thank you to everyone who participated in last year's event. Thanks to your participation and support from our generous sponsors, we have donated $113,000 to the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute to support brain cancer research over the past three years!

    How is this 5K different?

    Truthfully, the fourth annual Brain Cancer Awareness 5K is pretty much just like every 5K out there. If you choose to sponsor, run or walk, which we hope you do, here is what you get:

    Beautiful scenery – Our course is nestled in the heart of White Oak Park.
    Fantastic volunteers – Some of us are related, some of us met by coincidence, and some of us just want to help. Whomever you meet-when you are checked in or receive a cup of water at one of our convenient rest stops-you will be well taken care of.
    A really cool shirt – Just what every runner and walker secretly hopes for when they are lacing up their tennies, another awesome shirt! Designed by a friend and printed by yet another friend, all registered walkers and runners will receive the official Brain Cancer Awareness 5K t-shirt. And guess what? When you wear our shirt, you will help to spread awareness about brain cancer, for which we thank you.
    A little bit of awareness about brain cancer – Yes, we are shamelessly going to sneak in some education. Before having a family member or friend diagnosed with brain cancer, none of us knew much about it. We don’t expect you to walk away a neurosurgeon, but we do want to make you aware of the signs and symptoms of brain cancer.
    To learn more, we encourage you to visit UPMCCancerCenter.com/braincancer.

    What you will not get:

    You will not get dyed a rainbow of colors, chased by zombies, or be required to scale walls using your Herculean strength. There are some other pretty great 5Ks that already provide these services. We should know, because many of us have participated in those events too.
    Why should you sponsor, run or walk?

    That is up to you. This is why we are doing this:

    Meet Dorothy Pollack. She is why we are doing this. Dorothy was a wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, Girl Scout leader, bus tour aficionado, friend, and collector of rare light houses. Just kidding. She loved light houses and so she did her best to buy them all. Just ask her husband, Joe. Seriously-go ahead and ask him. He will be the handsome, spry 80 something year old passing out water at one of the rest stops.

    In late 2013, Dorothy began to have trouble getting around and was easily irritated. Then in mid-January 2014, she fell. Being a stroke survivor, her family assumed it was another stroke and rushed her to the ER, where an MRI revealed a large brain tumor. Following surgery, her tumor was diagnosed as a treatment resistant GBM or glioblastoma – a cancerous form of brain cancer.

    On February 27, 2014, Dorothy lost her battle with brain cancer surrounded by her loving family.

    Barb is why we are doing this. In 1985, Barb was an active 21 year old young woman, totally immersed in living life and making plans for the future, when she began to feel dizzy and unsteady on her feet at different times of the day. She decided it was time to see her doctor who recommended further testing. Nothing could have prepared Barb and her family for the devastating diagnosis; she had a non-cancerous brain tumor. Following surgery and 30 treatments of radiation over a period of six weeks, Barb was back to “normal” life. .

    Fast forward 28 years later, which encompasses a ton of great memories, including marriage to a great man and four wonderful children, Barb began having severe headaches and a few memory lapses over a period of only a few months. Testing revealed a brain tumor that was diagnosed as a GBM or glioblastoma. After two surgeries and several different types of radiation and chemotherapy, Barb succumbed to the disease in 2014.

    We wouldn’t be here without Barb. It was her determination to bring awareness to brain cancer that brought our group together, and it is her memory and the memory of all those who have battled brain cancer courageously that keep us motivated to bring an end to brain cancer.

    Our collective goal for this 5k

    We also are doing this for others who may have this disease. We want to bring awareness to this type of cancer. GBM is a deadly disease, and one very few people hear about.

    Event Proceeds

    Event proceeds will benefit brain cancer research at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute.

    Back in August of 2015, a Beatles tribute band named Hard Days Night appeared on The Lamp Theatre stage on the very first Saturday of operation. The sellout crowd was amazed at the recreation of The Beatles. The next year almost to the day, that same band wowed their second sellout crowd as The Lamp celebrated our grand opening. Don’t be left out again from this one of a kind show.
