MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- Support Connection, a Yorktown Heights-based not-for-profit organization that provides free, confidential services to people affected by breast and ovarian cancer, will be the beneficiary of a rocking Spring fundraiser hosted by Grand Prix New York in Mount Kisco on April 12 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Admission is $20. Other fundraising efforts will include a 50/50 and raffle prizes.
“We have hosted many major charity events at Grand Prix New York, but this one particularly hits home for a lot of people,” said Nat Mundy, vice president of Grand Prix New York.
“The prevalence of breast and ovarian cancer is astonishing but it’s comforting to know that there are wonderful organizations like Support Connection who provide services to help people cope.”
Several musical acts will donate their time and jams, including Vintage Vinyl, a three-piece band that specializes in deep cuts from the 1960s and 1970s. Boomer Baby will follow with classic jingles and TV show theme songs, while Fast Eddie and the Silver Sharks play classic rock and rocking blues.
Hank Cash and Friends will play an eclectic set featuring contemporary dance music and down-home blues and The Hooligans plan to perform a few power punk songs to finish the night.
“Support Connection is grateful to Grand Prix New York and the musicians for helping a good cause,” said Katherine Quinn, executive director of Support Connection.
“These events play an important role in raising awareness among Hudson Valley residents and allow us to reach out to members of the community who might be in need of our support services.”
Grand Prix New York is located at 333 North Bedford Road in Mount Kisco, New York. For more information about Support-apalooza, call 914-358-3600 or visit www.gpny.com .
