The Concert 4 the Cure, featuring Jeffrey Steele, took place on Saturday, September 9th at 5:00 PM on the Great Lawn at the Westhaven Residents Club, and once again DCR Nashville stepped in to support our neighbors and a great cause. Proceeds from both the Family Fun Run and the Concert 4 the Cure will fund discovery grants at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. Discovery grants provide seed funding for cancer researchers to pursue bold ideas in the lab that can lead to breakthrough discoveries in the fight against cancer. Findings from preliminary research supported by these grants are essential to obtain funding from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and other federal agencies that grant millions every year to support cancer research.

Concert 4 the Cure is an event that is very important to DCR Nashville because of the charity it supports. Understanding the importance of raising as much money as possible for Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, DCR Nashville donated all of the lighting, sound and crew for this great event for the 9th year in a row.

DCR Nashville would also like to include mention to it’s team of engineers and technicians who helped make this event a success.
