The 6th Annual "Music vs Cancer" Event

On April 2, Brass Union again will host the sixth annual "Music vs. Cancer" event to benefit the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The day party will feature live music entertainment provided by deejays J-Wall, DJ Big Lebowski and DJ Ryan Brown in addition to performances by acoustic artists Dave Wells and Ali McGuirk. Brass Union will dish out complimentary appetizers and there will be a silent auction and raffle. For those looking to get their game on, there will be a charity shuffleboard tournament with a $150 cash prize. 

Brass Union’s music curator, Jeff Wallace, will be spearheading the fundraiser. Wallace’s mother, Eileen, is a breast cancer survivor who has been cancer-free for 12 years. A cause close to everyone’s hearts, the donations will help supplement Eileen’s fundraising initiatives for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute as she prepares to run her seventh Boston Marathon for the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge Team. In the past years, Ellen has raised more than $80,000 for the cause.
