Benefit Concert to help Zoe Anyan
Milford, CT October 18, 2010 - Jazz drummer Marcel, with his quartet Beyond the Sun, will perform a concert November 7th to help raise funds for Zoe Anyan, a little six year old girl fighting cancer.
Zoe Anyan, who lives in Milford, Connecticut, is fighting a form of brain cancer that has required lengthy radiation and chemotherapy treatment at St. Jude Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Zoe is now home in Milford, but is suffering from paralysis, a side affect from the treatments that is making it very hard for her to climb stairs and go to school. Her mother must carry her up and down the stairs every day in order for Zoe to get to her medical appointments and to go to school.
Marcel and Beyond the Sun was asked by staff, students and parishioners of St. Gabriel Church to perform in concert so that they could help raise needed funds to help get Zoes family back on track after mounting medical bills and to help find a new residence that will be more accessible for Zoe.
- Our concerts have helped many causes over the years, but when it comes down to helping and fighting for children and families, we step up; all funds raised will go directly to Anyan family -, said Marcel, drummer and producer of Marcel and Beyond the Sun.
The benefit concert and dinner, slated for November 7th, will be held at the St Gabriel School Auditorium, 1 Tudor Road, Milford, CT with dinner starting at 5:30 p.m. and concert starting at 7:00 pm.
