Interlochen, MI (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
“I Perform For,” a cancer benefit concert that took place on Sunday, April 7, announces that the full performance is now available for viewing on its Facebook page. The event featured 17 performances including music, dance, acting and poetry.
Organizers raised over $4550 on Sunday alone, and they are still accepting donations on Facebook and through their website. Bracelets designed for the event will still be rewarded to donors who give $3.00 or more. Donors who give $100.00 or more will be listed on the “I Perform For” site.
Every penny donated will benefit the Damon Runyon Cancer Foundation, a foundation that provides funds to the best young scientists to pursue innovative cancer research. Since 1946, they have invested over $260 million in young scientists, including 11 Nobel Laureates and many leaders of major cancer centers across the United States. Because all administrative and fundraising costs are paid through an eternal Broadway ticketing service the organization operates, every single penny donated goes to the scientists and their research.
For those who don’t use Facebook, donations may also be made for the event directly through the “I Perform For” web site by clicking on the “Donate” tab. The full event is available for viewing on that site as well.
About “I Perform For”
The first annual “I Perform For” event was created as a way to raise funds for cancer research while showcasing performances by art students in Interlochen, Michigan. All proceeds from the event will go toward the Damon Runyon Cancer Foundation for innovative cancer research.
