Concert For Cash with Boogie Machine Jan 31
The Cash Scanlon Phillips Foundation announces the seventh annual Concert for Cash ($25/ticket) at the Breckenridge Brewery/Colorado Craft at 2220 Blake Street , Denver. Doors open at 6:30pm on Friday, January 31,2014, featuring The Funk Disco Dance band Boogie Machine. Now in its seventh 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 (charitable contributions for the auction still being accepted thru Jan. 8th).
So, what's the reason for the high-energy, dance party to 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 seven 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.
