It has been said that music is THE universal language, having the ability to transcend boundaries, bridge understanding, connect people from all walks of life and facilitate expressions of deep emotions otherwise hidden.
In light of recent events, it’s more important than ever for us to join together as a community, supporting each other, and demonstrating love by meeting the needs of our loved ones, friends and neighbors. Appropriately, the theme of this year’s Concert is “The Greatest of These”. Conductor Bob Heritage has chosen inspirational love songs like “My Love is like a Red, Red Rose,” “There’s a Fine, Fine Line” and well-known favorite, “Blue Moon,” as well as many other moving melodies about the greatest of these -LOVE!!
The Concert of Hope and Remembrance will once again take place at Boulevard Baptist Church. AND… Concert sponsors will enjoy a reception with the concert choir and orchestra as well as CAA Board Members and staff at the much-anticipated Afterglow Party, which takes place in the AnMed Health Cancer Center.
For 14 years, CAA loyal donors have helped make this event successful by signing on as Sponsors, purchasing ads in our Concert Program and purchasing tickets to the event. However, the number of cancer patients seeking assistance continues to rise which means more than ever, we need your help and would greatly appreciate your continued support.
As you know, all money we receive assists local cancer patients with treatment-related expenses. The Concert of Hope and Remembrance is our LARGEST and MOST IMPORTANT fundraiser, bringing in approximately 1/3 of our annual budget. Last year, this money, combined with other donations and grants, enabled us to provide more than $152,000 in direct financial assistance to local residents battling cancer.
You can help us make 2016 the best year ever! Whether you sponsor, purchase an ad, participate on a committee, attend or help us spread the word, your contribution will help CAA lessen the burden of cancer on Anderson County residents! There is still time to become one of our fabulous sponsors!
Join the ranks! We are happy to add your name to our distinctive list of benefactors and you will be included in our event program.
