Purduettes
Every year the Purduettes team up with the Purdue Center for Cancer Research to present the Cancer Benefit Concert raising money to help cancer research.  The theme is different every year with this years being Lymphatic Cancer in honor of Purduette sister in song, Chelsy Pala’s mother, Mindy.

The Purduette Trio entertained the audience with ‘A Tisket a Tasket.”   During breaks from speeches, each of the specialties sang so the audience could enjoy music while bidding on silent auction items.
