‘Sean Lives On’ to hold third annual charity concert at Highline Ballroom
Increasingly rare are events that take pride in their promise to be 100% profit-free. On May 22nd, Sean Lives On, alongside Limitless Entertainment, Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity and University Primetime, will hold its third annual benefit concert at New York’s prestigious Highline Ballroom. Project 46 will headline the philanthropic event, with support from Nammo, Contact, C&T and a special, unannounced headliner. A few hints to raise the anticipation: hailing from the New York area, he has performed main stage sets at some of America’s largest festivals and has recently released collaborations with Tiësto, Paris & Simo and others.
“Sean Lives On” is a depiction of Zach Kardisch’s inspirational ideas put into action – a non-profit concert series founded in 2012 to commemorate his late friend, Sean Riley, who lost his battle to cancer during his high school years. Despite Sean’s passing, his deep appreciation for his treatment at Winthrop Children’s Hospital encouraged Zach to step up to the plate so that “No parent will have to se their child die of pediatric cancer again.” The results were stellar.
The concert’s inaugural show, held in 2012, raised over $10,000 for Winthrop Hospital and in total, the annual charity event has donated more than $25,000 in an effort to fight childhood cancer.
All proceeds raised from “Sean Lives On” will be donated to Winthrop Hospital to enhance the treatment of those who, like Sean, suffer from pediatric cancer. For tickets and more information, click here.
