The 5th annual Evening of Hope benefit took place at Marquee on May 4, 2016.  The Band was thrilled to honor the Tepperberg family for their dedication to fighting pediatric cancer.  The  inaugural Jerome Tepperberg Award was given to Dr. Julia Glade Bender, for compassion and dedication to the care of our children and the advancement of pediatric cancer research. All of the proceeds from this very successful evening will go towards neuroblastoma research.


Thank you to our sponsors:
