In April 2012, John "Mikko" Gegen was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a rare cancer that develops in the nerve cells. Since his diagnosis, Mikko has been in the care of Children's Hospital of Minnesota and the University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital. He has undergone chemotherapy, surgery to remove a tumor, a stem cell transplant, and is now in the process of receiving a series of antibody and accutane therapies.

The purpose of the benefit is to ease the burden of the additional costs the Gegens have been faced with.

The cost is $25 in advance, $30 at the door.

Cash donations are being accepted at the Affinity Plus Credit Union in care of the John Gegen Benefit Fund.
