This Saturday, April 4, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) is set to receive a big boost in support from Cincinnatians searching for an answer. Local advocates Jessica Tate and Matt Bishara have teamed up with several community vendors and entertainers to present ‘Queen City Survival: A Community for a Cure.’ The one-day event will feature a full day of music, food, and lectures/videos focused on raising awareness and funding for LLS.
The event will be held at the Columbia Community Center, a recently opened event space just outside the Columbia-Tusculum area on Eastern Ave. East side favorites Eli’s BBQ and Fireside Wood-Fired Pizza will be on hand to serve food throughout the day. In addition to entertainment and refreshments the day will be full of raffles, with all proceeds going to the LLS. Among the prizes are two Reds’ Opening Day tickets, being raffled at 2p for all early-comers, and a pair of 2015 MLB All-Star tickets. Music will be provided by many local and regional groups, including Lebanon’s Nicholas and the Pessimistics, local west-siders Buffalo Wabs and the Price Hill Hustle, the high-energy The Almighty Get Down, and many more.
Doors open at 1p and festivities run all day long. The event is emceed by WNKU’s Ken Hanes. Presale tickets are available for a suggested donation of $20; tickets available day-of for $25. The event is family-friendly.
Please join the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s first ever Queen City Survival!! We are pleased to host some of Cincinnati’s great musical talents as we come together for one simple mission: find a cure for blood cancer. Cancer has found its way into too many lives.
