Concert for the Cure is an amazing event that funds an even more amazing cause. Camp Discovery provides an incredible opportunity for childhood cancer patients to escape their everyday challenges and just be kids.
Concert for the Cure is a great foundation that raises money for a really good cause. They work so hard and for so money months to put this together so that they can raise money to send children to Camp Discovery. Each year they raise their goal of how much they are trying to make in order to send more and more children to the camp and raise more and more money for the American Cancer Society.
This is a great foundation, for a great cause, with a great group of college students. It is incredible how they manage to raise this much money for the American Cancer Society's Camp Discovery with so little resources. I have attended the concert in January for the past 4 years and it has been an incredible experience each time i went. They manage to get well known country singers to play. All who volunteer seem to have a great passion for everything they do and are so positive and encouraging. The concert and the students never fail.
This nonprofit has grown immensely over 8 years, and constantly puts on a great concert to benefit Camp Discovery. All children who are diagnosed with cancer may not be able to afford such a wonderful camp, but every child that experiences something so hard like having cancer should be able to. I appreciate what this nonprofit stands for, and that their money actually goes directly to a child's attendance fees to a Camp, rather than to help a larger organization fund advertisements and benefit balls. If this nonprofit continues to grow at the rate it has in the past, it may be one of the biggest annual benefit concert in San Antonio!
Concert for the Cure is an amazing series of events aimed at raising money for the American Cancer Society. It is put on by a determined group of young women who continue, each year, to make large donations to the cause. Not only does this event benefit the American Cancer Society, it also benefits the community of San Antonio and the community of Trinity University, helping to bring these two communities together at an exciting, fun event. There are series of smaller events that lead up to the main concert each year. As a member of the sorority which puts on Concert for the Cure each year, I have played various roles in making the event a success.
I have attended to Concert for the Cure for the past two years and continue to be amazed at its growing success. It has grown into a huge event at a favorite local venue from its humble beginnings in the Trinity gym. Being a part of the sorority that hosts the concert, I know how much work and thought are put into this event. My grandfather died of cancer in 2005, so the cause is very close to my heart, and it is rewarding to know you are taking part in such a worthwhile cause.
I have volunteered with Concert for the Cure for the past three years. It is a large country concert put on where portions of the ticket sales, tshirt sales and drink sales are totaled to benefit the American Cancer Society. The program involves students and Trinity and invites the San Antonio community as a whole. The organization has experienced proper growth as proof through venues each year. Once held in the Trinity University's gymnasium, the concert is now held at Cowboys, a huge dance hall and saloon that hosts many big country names and is a popular spot for locals to go dancing. The money that is raised benefits the American Cancer society but a portion also goes to a smaller beneficiary, Camp Hope. Camp Hope provides children with cancer a place to have fun and forget their troubles. The founder of CFTC was once an attendee of Camp Hope. The overall foundation is a great asset, not only to the Trinity community but the San Antonio one as well.
CFTC Foundation has been an amazing organization to be involved with. Never have I seen so many people come together in such an organized and enjoyable way for a good cause! You can feel the spirit and joy that this event brings to peoples lives from the start of fund-raising to the final concert. CFTC is fun even without taking its philanthropic nature into mind, and when you remember that it is raising money for great organizations like the American Cancer Society and Camp Discovery, you CANNOT pass it up!
I've been volunteering with the Concert for the Cure Foundation for three years now. Every year the nonprofit hosts a concert event as their main fundraiser, organized and run by campus organizations at Trinity University. This concert has only been a tradition for handful of years, but since the first concert, has exploded into a city wide event that people look forward to attending annually. This nonprofit combines a great cause, with a great fundraising event to raise enough funds to truly make a difference for the American Cancer Society.
