The “Here for the Cure” country-music concert, founded and organized by twin brothers Chris and Jamie Ruscheinski, generates funds for cancer-related causes.

“Our goal this year is $366,000,” Chris told the Now. “That’s double the amount from the very first Gone Country (concert). We are now in our fifth year.… Should be the first year we 100 per cent sell out at 5,000 guests.”

Event tickets are priced at $36.99 until noon on Feb. 28, and only 250 tickets are available at that “Early bird” price.
