Concerts 4 Hope are another live event fundraiser for our 501(c)3 childhood cancer charity "A Mission Of Love".
The proceeds from these events are used to help childhood cancer families financially, assist with our monthly gifts to children battling cancer and donating to independent childhood cancer research. We began live event fundraisers in April 2016 when we started Comedy 4 Cancer. Concerts 4 Hope gives us a chance to reach a new audience and that helps with raising childhood cancer awareness.
Concerts 4 Hope will be live concerts featuring multiple bands per show. Besides the concert we will also have a 50/50 raffle and gift basket raffles at each show.
As explained above proceeds from these shows will help in numerous ways. When a child is battling cancer, the entire family does as well. Parents have to miss work to assist with the care of their child. While the family medical leave act helps them with the time off. The bills however do not stop coming in. That's where we assist childhood cancer families financially.
These events will also help with our Best Day Award which we started in April 2015. The Best Day Award is actually a gift we give out to a child fighting cancer in memory of Stephaine K Marshall. You can read more about Stephaine as written by her father by clicking here. Read more about some of the kids we have gifted so far by clicking here.
