CONCERT FOR THE CURE FOUNDATION
June 20, 2011
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.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
knowing that the money and time I donate let's children continue to attend Camp Hope and the other portion of the money goes to the American Cancer Society.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
ask that a bigger country artist play at it but if it happened, it would take away money from the raised portion in order to pay the artist.
Volunteer & I am member of the sorority that founded CFTC and do numerous community service hours attached to helping fundraising and have worked the table at the actual event (or concert).
