Concert for the Cure




This year’s Seacoast Concert for a Cure, an annual music festival that raises funds for breast cancer survivor support, will feature a unique lineup of national musicians with local roots. The event will feature the internationally-acclaimed band The Adam Ezra Group plus reggae stars Mighty Mystic and the Strings of Thunder.Attendees will also have a chance to bid on and win raffle and silent auction items including two tickets to “The Colbert Report,” a cruise on Lake Winnipesaukee as well as several getaway vacation packages and two tickets to anywhere Southwest Airlines flies.

Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 the day of. Children ages 4–12 are $1 each. Doors open at 5 p.m. with the show beginning at 6 p.m. Seacoast Science Center, Odiorne Point. Visit www.seacoastconcertforacure.com for tickets and more information.

Last year’s concert raised over $15,000 for local breast cancer support programs. This year’s money raised by the event will help the following organizations:

Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats which provide adventure retreat weekends for women living after breast cancer.

On Belay, a local non-profit that supports children of those suffering from cancer or other life-threatening diseases. The organization was started by concert founder and New Hampshire Volunteer of the Year, Crescentia Healy True, who sadly lost her battle with breast cancer in 2006.

BreastCancerStories.com, an online community where people touched by breast cancer can share their experiences with loved ones and with one another.
