On October 25, Breast Cancer Can Stick It!, a nationally recognized nonprofit will put on an event called the Drummathon in Fairview, Texas.
Founded by drummer and triple negative breast cancer survivor April Samuels, Breast Cancer Can Stick It! was founded in 2010 and has grown into a recognized and influential nonprofit dedicated to fight breast cancer and increase awareness.
As for the event: On 10/25 at The Village of Fairview Fountain Court in Fairview, Texas, the 2015 Drummathon will bring together several drummers for a special event to raise funds and awareness. From the site:
Drummers and people across the world will join together in the most unique of ways to raise funds in the fight against breast cancer by fundraising as a drummer or an online participant.
Along with Breast Cancer Can Stick It! founder April Samuels, celebrity drummers on-hand for the event will include Vinnie Appice (Black Sabbath, Dio), Carmen Appice (Ozzy Osbourne, Ted Nugent, Rod Stewart), Matt Star (Mr. Big, Ace Frehley) and more.
In addition to having spots open for drummers interested in participating in the live drumming, there are also sponsorship packages available to those unable to attend but interested in donating to the cause anyway.
This should be a great time for all able to attend, but even if you can’t make it don’t hesitate to donate! Every little bit helps.
