Stand Up 2 Cancer Fundraiser

On September 5-7th 26 different live music venues will all be holding a fundraiser to raise donations for Stand Up 2 Cancer.  Stand Up 2 Cancer is under the Entertainment Industry Foundation and one of the most highly rated non-profit organizations.  They have taken a unique approach towards  finding the cure for cancer.  They have formed "dream teams" of doctors, some of the best in their fields.  They did this in the US and internationally.  The one thing that is reassuring is that 100% of your donations go toward research. 

 Also on September 5, 2014 Stand Up 2 Cancer will be holding a fundraiser that is being carried by 31 major and cable television stations in the USA and major stations n Canada, as well as streaming live on Hula and Yahoo.....all being done simultaneously. 

The live music community is coming together the same weekend to raise funds for this worthy cause.  Venues that are participating are as follows:  Acoustic Cave, Broken Heart Cafe, BS's "Bring a Friend & Stay Awhile, Cameo Music Park, Ce Soir, elite Sounds of Jazz, Guthries, Hotel Chelsea, Kickin, Lost Coconuts, Lokki's Gardens, Mountain Cave Club, Party Beach Kurhaus Scheveningen, Pink Duck, Place of Grace, Seaside Lounge, Smokin Aces, Surfside Hideaway, Solana's Place, The Dirty Grind, The Keys, Titanic, Tranquil Cafe, Vincents, & White Tiger Islands.  

There are a few other things going on as well, Snail Racing, and there will be a silent Auction of Clothing designed by a clothing designer that lost her battle to cancer.
