"This benefit concert will be a first class event and is consistent with the long-term vision of the Foundation to someday eradicate breast cancer," said Peter Stirba. "Through research efforts and providing research funding to the Huntsman Cancer Institute we are thrilled to provide this opportunity to reach out to the community and are hopeful that the response will be well-received."
