Charity Concert to Benefit Family of Fallen Lansing, Mich. Firefighter

Featuring Your Generation in Concert(TM) With Fifty Amp Fuse

NOVI, MI--(Marketwired - February 05, 2016) - The Home Builders Association (HBA) of Southeastern Michigan is privileged to present a special charity concert at Suburban Collection Showplace, Diamond Banquet and Conference Center, February 17, 2016. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Lansing Firefighter Dennis Rodeman, 35, was a seven-year veteran of the Lansing Fire Department (LFD). He died tragically on Sept. 9 after being struck by a hit-and-run driver while collecting money for the annual "Fill the Boot" campaign to support muscular dystrophy research.

Rodeman was a volunteer firefighter in Vermontville, Mich. and also served with the U.S. Marine Corps in Iraq before joining LFD. He married his wife, Kate Rodeman -- an ER nurse -- in June 2015. She is expecting their first child in April 2016. Sadly, his wife Kate was on shift at Sparrow Hospital's ER when her husband was brought in with his injuries.

"Members of our industry have a long tradition of helping others. That is why the Great Lakes Builders Show 2016 is honored to present this charity benefit concert. Our goal is to raise at least $20,000 to help Kate Rodeman and their unborn child," said Michael Stoskopf, CEO of HBA of Southeastern Michigan who's planning the two-day Great Lakes Builders Show event.

Performing is Your Generation in Concert™ featuring Fifty Amp Fuse, a live multimedia spectacular celebrating six decades of American and British pop/rock hits. Led by a nine-piece band, the audience will be transported on a musical journey through the soundtrack of their lives.

Concert tickets cost $45 per person, which includes concert entry, two (2) drink tickets and heavy hors d'oeuvres. Twenty dollars ($20) per concert ticket sold will benefit the Rodeman family. Parking for this event is free courtesy of the Suburban Collection Showplace, Diamond Banquet and Conference Center.
