Call For A Cure Benefit Concert at Cranford H.S.
Doesn’t it feel as though Easter was just yesterday? The Memorial Day parade may have just passed by, but some of us still have unfound colored eggs lurking in the nooks and crannies of our backyards.
You probably remember hearing about, if not attending, the annual Friends of Colin Easter egg hunt, a charity driven event held in Cranford each year to raise money towards the fight against Ewing sarcoma cancer, a predominantly pediatric form of bone cancer.
In 2010, Colin Maher, a Cranford resident, passed away of Ewing sarcoma. Thereafter, in his memory, The Friends of Colin , a nonprofit organization was born. The organization is committed to working towards a cure for Ewing sarcoma pediatric bone cancer, through both awareness and fundraising. The Friends of Colin work directly with the Georgetown University Medical Center to fund Ewing’s Sarcoma Research. The egg hunt, while the event for which they have come to be best known, is not their only fundraiser.
On Tuesday, June 10th, at 7:00 PM in the Cranford High School Auditorium at 201 West End Place, a collection of musicians and artists of Cranford High School will perform in a “Call for a Cure Benefit Concert.” Tickets $8 in advance, and can be purchased at EventBrite.com/CallForACure , or $10 at the door.
All proceeds will benefit the Friends of Colin in support of their work to combat Ewing’s Sarcoma. It’s a great way to enjoy some of the community’s greatest budding talent, while helping out a spectacular cause. Visit the Friends of Colin Facebook Page and support this wonderful cause!
