Those who planned this touching event encourage survivors as well as those who are currently in treatment to attend the shows. The Spring Bash was honored to have many of them as guests at the show and among these special people were two who stood out at this particular show. “Melvin” and “Jennifer” who are presently diagnosed with cancer, but continue to fight and greet each new day and every new friend with a smile.

Funds are raised by donations at the door and sales of a special CD called "SONGS OF HOPE,STORIES OF COURAGE" which is available for purchase at www.songsforthecure.org. All proceeds from these efforts go to The American Cancer Society Relay For Life. A special guitar autographed by each of the artists who participated was given away at the end of the evening and won by Eddie Heinzleman.
