Concert 4 The Cure
This year’s concert, featuring former American Idol contestant and country music star, Kellie Pickler, is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 17th, starting at 6:00 PM on the Great Lawn at the Westhaven Residents Club. Beverages and food will be available for purchase at The Great Lawn. A limited number of VIP Experience tickets are available and include hors d’oeuvres and beverages with a premium view of the concert from the balcony.

The Concert 4 The Cure, now in its 11th year, was started by the four sons of Theresa Stacey, after their beloved mother lost her twelve year battle with the disease in 2001. Her courageous fight became an inspiration to everyone she touched. The Stacey family feels a sense of purpose behind their desire to organize them.

‘We are excited to have this opportunity to honor our mother with this tenth Concert 4 The Cure. We are fortunate to have so many caring people join us in our campaign to fight Cancer by funding research,’ they said.

Discovery grants provide seed funding for cancer researchers to pursue bold ideas in the lab that can lead to breakthrough discoveries in the fight against cancer. Findings from preliminary research supported by these grants are essential to obtain funding from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and other federal agencies that grant millions every year to support cancer research.

Tickets are $15 for children ages 12 and under, $30 for adults and VIP tickets are $100.
