LANSING, MI – “The Sopranos’” Vincent Pastore and “Home Improvement’s” Jim Labriola headline a special fundraiser Saturday to benefit the Sparrow Herbert-Herman Cancer Center.

“Comics for Cancer: Night of 1000 Guidos” features comedy from Vincent Pastore and Jim Labriola and the full Hollywood treatment – a red carpet, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and the classic sounds of Frank Sinatra, performed by Detroit’s Mark Randisi. Pastore played mafioso Salvatore Bonpensiero on the long-running HBO show. Labriola played a donut-loving delivery man on “Home Improvement” and has appeared in movies such as “The Santa Clause.”

The fundraiser was the brainchild of Lansing’s Stephen Scofes in memory of his mother, Georgia, who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2017.

The event is at 6 p.m. on October 13th, 2018 at Studio C, 1999 Central Park Drive, Okemos.
