Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo Live at The Covelli Centre August 16th

Posted: Updated:

The rock voice of Pat Benatar comes to The Covelli Centre on August 16 at 7 p.m. to jump-start Panerathon week in the Valley!

Concert-goers can expect to re-live Pat Benatar's three decades of rock-n-roll hits, and a portion of the show's proceeds will benefit the annual Panerathon and the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center (JACBCC).

Tickets go on sale Monday, May 13 at 10 a.m. on ticketmaster.com, the Covelli Centre Time Warner Cable Box Office, or by phone at 866-448-7849. Tickets are $36.50, $46.50, and $62.

The concert is part of week full of activities in the Valley which culminates in the 4th Annual Panerathon, 10K/2 Mile Fun Walk/Run and Kids Run. The Panerathon, also held at the Covelli Centre, is the largest community fundraising event in the area. Over the past three years, it has hosted over 13,500 participants and raised over $500,000 for the JACBCC.

"We're excited to bring our Panerathon week to another level this year by kicking it off with such a huge name as Pat Benatar!" said Sam Covelli, Owner/Operator of Covelli Enterprises. "We're proud to be a part of the exciting things going on at the Covelli Centre and proud to bring the Valley the largest community event around all to help end breast cancer in our area."

This year the Panerathon is expected to grow both in fundraising and in participation, due to the connection with Pat Benatar show.

Heralded as a "rule-breaker" and "trail-blazer", Pat Benatar and husband guitarist Neil Giraldo have spawned several Grammy award and chart topping hits such as "Hit Me With Your Best Shot", "You Better Run", "Shadows of the Night", "Love is a Battlefield", and "We Belong".
