Concert For Cash 2013
The Cash Scanlon Phillips Foundation announces the sixth annual Concert for Cash ($20/ticket) at the Oriental Theater (4335 West 44th Ave.) at 8pm on Saturday, January 19st, 2013, featuring the Bop Skizzum and John Common. Now in its sixth year, the event also features a silent auction of items that range from sports equipment and memorabilia, to wine, art, and professional services from around the Denver metro area (donations for the auction still being accepted thru Jan. 8th).   For the second time , the annual event has added a specially priced afternoon concert for kids (tickets must be purchased in addition to the evening's event.)

Rounding out the winning day of bluegrass will be the Highland Ramblers (one of the twelve Telluride Bluegrass competitors selected last year).  And for parents who want a way to share the music fun with the whole family, the new Kids Concert, The Highland Ramblers, starts at 2-4pm for a flat fee of $15 per family. Families receive an additional $5 off when they tote 5 cans of food for the Edgewater Food Bank.

So, what's the reason for the high-energy, all-day event? Put simply: To keep on keepin' on. In May 2007, Tess and Page Phillips lost their tiny son to an incurable, degenerative disease called spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) just five months after he was born. Though devastated, the couple refused to crumble, embarking instead on a constant quest to live every moment in tribute to their son, Cash Phillips. By January of 2008, joined by a fervent following of family and friends who called themselves "Team Cash," the couple had managed to launch the first ever Concert for Cash. It was a concert that would both honor their son and benefit The Children's Hospital to build a memorial garden.

That was nearly six years ago, and in the time since, this event has not only ensured that the $60,000 garden got built, but also has gone on to raise additional funds for The Children's Hospital, including funding for its Bereavement Program and the International Adoption Clinic at Children's. This year, the Cash Scanlon Philips Fund, now a 501(c)(3), but still known as Team Cash to its longtime friends, sets its sights on raising money for The Children's Hospital emergency department.
