Washington, D.C., April 19, 2011—The National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC), online charity auction website PSGive.org and the cast of Broadway’s Rock of Ages have joined forces to raise funds and awareness for NBCC’s Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®. The partnership program will run to the end of June 2011. As a part of the partnership, tickets to the musical Rock of Ages at New York City’s Helen Hayes Theatre will be available for performances through November 2011.
The National Breast Cancer Coalition is a grassroots advocacy organization that seeks to end breast cancer by January 1, 2020. In September the organization launched its most ambitious initiative yet—Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®—a deadline to end breast cancer by January 1, 2020. It will accomplish this by collaborating with scientists, advocates, services providers and politicians to learning how to prevent metastasis and how to prevent the disease from developing in the first place.
Rock of Ages is the "rock on" story of a small town woman and a big city rocker in along the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles back in 1987. Throughout March and April, PSGive.org will host a "flagship" event to benefit NBCC’s Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®. Following a performance of Rock of Ages, the winner will go back stage to meet the cast.
Head to New York City’s Brooks Atkinson Theatre, located at 256 West 47th Street, with two tickets and backstage passes, courtesy of a PSGive.org auction (http://www.psgive.org/event/view/id/105#description) for one of Broadway’s hottest shows.
