The Orange County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure is proud to partner with the Pacific Symphony and Farmers & Merchants Bank to present “Music for the Cure,” a concert taking place at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on September 12 at 8pm. The concert, “Tchaikovsky Spectacular,” will bring awareness to the Race for the Cure and to Komen’s mission to end breast cancer forever. The collaboration is a model for nonprofit partnerships everywhere, and serves as a way to break outside of the box in promoting our cause.
We are so pleased to have Farmers & Merchants Bank CEO Henry Walker playing an instrumental role in the creation and culmination of this concert by joining the two organizations to maximize outreach and exposure for a life-saving cause. Walker has been a true supporter of both Komen OC and the Symphony, serving as a Pink Tie Guy for Komen and a board member for the Pacific Symphony.
The performance will take place on a summer evening only two weeks before the September 27 Race for the Cure, serving as an ideal reminder that the fight against breast cancer continues. In addition, this is an opportunity for the general public to support two beloved causes, breast cancer awareness and the preservation of music. Each cause is different; both are important.
