The 3rd annual benefit concert will be held September 21st, 2013 at Barrio Tequileria in Cincinnati, Ohio. “Chords for Chiari” is a concert benefiting the Neurosurgery Department of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The two main objectives of this event are to spread awareness of a largely unknown condition called Chiari Malformation and to raise money to help further the research being conducted by CCHMC.
“Chords for Chiari” has gained the support of local businesses that will be sponsoring by donating items into the silent auction being held the night of the event. Donors include; Cincinnati Bengals, Cincinnati Reds, Cincinnati Rollergirls, Coco Keys Water Resort, Curry Printing Co., The Dayton Dragons, Dewey’s Pizza, Essenza Studio & Gallery, Evolution Creative Solutions, Full Throttle Indoor Karting, Mad Cap Puppets, Melting Pot, Monster Mini Golf Sam Ash music, Scott’s Lawn Service, Star Lanes, Woodhouse Day Spa and many more. Chords for Chiari will feature live music from local bands Automatic Evolution and Roosevelt, a silent auction, and a split the pot raffle.
The goal is to help provide the opportunity for CCHMC to move forward in their mission to further understand the pathology and physiology of Chiari Malformations. All the proceeds from the event will go to the Neurosurgery Fitzpatrick Chiari Research Fund and help continue the research to find the causes and best ways to treat this malformation. “Chords for Chiari” will take place September 21st at Barrio Tequileria (3937 Spring Grove Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45223 (513)-541-6400) beginning at 7pm; live music begins at 9pm.
