Get ready to rock out!

Or, wait, maybe Sinatra is more your style.

 

Gospel? Classic pop?

Or how about a little country from a former American Idol contestant?

You can get it all in one place during the sixth annual Concert for Jimmy Zito -- Rockin' the House for St. Jude Sunday, Nov. 7, in Des Plaines.

The fundraising event is staged by Nick and Phyllis Psyhogios of Wood Dale in memory of her brother, musician Jimmy Zito, who passed away in 2015.

The music extravaganza features 14 entertainers and an auction with guitars autographed by Brett Michaels and Sammy Hagar. There also will be other giveaways.

Tickets are $25, and all proceeds benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, which was founded by entertainer Danny Thomas in 1962.

St. Jude treats childhood cancers and other life-threatening diseases. The majority of the hospital's funding comes from individual contributions. Thanks to these donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude and no one is turned away due to an inability to pay.

Phyllis Psyhogios shares more details about the concert and how you can attend for a rockin' good time.
