DuPage Convalescent Center Foundation to Host Benefit Concert at Cantigny Park

The DuPage Convalescent Center Foundation is pleased to present the 125th Anniversary Benefit Concert. This event will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, August 7, at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, featuring local R&B band “August.” The community is invited to attend and support this event.

“This is a great way to network, reconnect or make new friends and clients all while helping the residents of the DuPage Convalescent Center,” said Ray Valadez, president of the DuPage Convalescent Center Foundation.
