The 14th Annual Concert 4 The Cure (C4TC) takes places on Saturday, September 7 at Westhaven Resident’s Club. It’s one of the best events in Franklin. One night, three bands and all for a good cause. And did we mention – there’s food and a silent auction? All the monies raised goes to pediatric cancer research at Monroe Carell Jr., Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
Headling this year’s event is local band Resurrection – A Journey Tribute. The popular band recently sold-out the Carnton outdoor concert series. They are comprised of Vic White, Ryan Christopher, Steve Sheroan, Ben King, and Jim Handley. The band had their first performance in Franklin at GRAYS on Main in 2014, and it was that night fans were created, a new journey began to what many would say is the best Journey tribute band around. Watch a video from their latest performances here.
Opening for the event will be Vic and the Spoils along with World Turning Band – A Fleetwood Mac Tribute Band. Tickets are available to the general public via the event website (concert4thecure.org).
Storme Warren will emcee the event, with several “bonus” speakers throughout the evening.
Ticket prices will increase after August 31, so the C4TC team is encouraging those interested in attending to get tickets as soon as possible. Currently, tickets are on sale for $35 for adults and $15 for children 10 and under — an incredible value for seeing three world-class bands and supporting a worthwhile cause in the process.

About Concert 4 the Cure
Concert 4 the Cure was founded by the Stacey family and has drawn wide support throughout the Middle Tennessee area. Each year, this annual event takes place in the Westhaven Community of Franklin, TN, and presented by the Westhaven Foundation.
Proceeds from the Concert 4 the Cure fund discovery grants at the Monroe Carell, Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. 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.
Since 2005, Concert 4 the Cure has raised more than $750,000.
