DC CHARITY EVENT: Blue Crush - A Summer Celebration to Crush Colon Cancer

The Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation, in partnership with The Pink Line Project and Pamela’s Punch, will host the 1st Annual “Blue Crush” Summer Celebration to Crush Colon Cancer on Tuesday, July 27, from 7-10PM at the new and exquisite Adams Morgan space called STROGA. Chris4Life is dedicated to the power that art events provide by improving lives through various art related activities.

For patients and caregivers, self-expression and enjoyment through the arts is proven to aid in the healing process and creates a sense of community and success during a time of hardship. Chris4Life is striving to find new and cutting edge ways of fundraising for this rapidly growing foundation – creating cultured programs and unique activities for people to help bring them into the fight against colon cancer.

The evening will be filled with live music performances, an opportunity to purchase limited-edition prints commissioned from DC’s top artists, signature cocktails, savory bites, VIP reception, local DC celebrities and inspirational stories from notable colon cancer survivors.

Performance line-up includes Grammy nominee hip-hop artist Christylez Bacon, contemporary classical group Low End String Quartet, indie-rock band The Four Horsemen, the City Dance Ensemble, and sultry soul singer Deborah Bond. This world-class performance event will celebrate colon cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers.

Tickets are on sale online for only $35, after July 17th ticket price is $40 (online ticket sales only – no sales at the door). All proceeds from the event will benefit Chris4Life Patient, Treatment & Care Program.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for this event. For sponsorship information, contact Michael Sapienza, Executive Director at michael.sapienza@chris4life.org. Follow us on Twitter and/or become a fan on Facebook.

About Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation

The principal goal of Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation is to permanently eliminate the threat of colon cancer through discovery of a cure. As long as people are dying from this disease, we will be at the front lines of the fight. To this end, we will fund cutting edge research so that the brightest minds and best institutions are empowered to cure colon cancer for good. Until then, Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation is committed to significantly improving the treatment experience for patients and caregivers, and to dramatically raise awareness about colon cancer in general. Following the inspiration of Christine Sapienza, we will utilize the arts as a means of integrating the mind, body and spirit in our approach. Chris4Life is working together to build a culture of care and foster relationships with research institutions, advocacy groups, the health care community, and the general public. Chris4Life's core values are Compassion, Empowerment, Perseverance, and Life. www.chris4life.org
