Alta Bates Summit Foundation, in cooperation with Comcast and KBLX-FM 102.9, is proud to announce tickets have gone on sale for the First Annual Applause for the Cause Charity Concert featuring Dionne Warwick and Sinbad, June 6, 2009 at the Oakland Convention Center. Proceeds will benefit the new Carol Ann Read Breast Health Center at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Oakland.

The 2009 Applause for the Cause Dionne Warwick and Sinbad concert joins an ever-growing list of unique and innovative charity fundraising event experiences sponsored by the Alta Bates Summit Foundation. These events allow participants to indulge in top-tier music and comedy entertainment, dancing, live auctions, and the wonderful company of old and new friends throughout the East Bay community while doing a good turn.

The new, state-of-the-art Carol Ann Read Breast Health Center opened in March 2008, in Oakland, California, and was built largely through the generosity of donors from the community. It is staffed by breast health specialists devoted to reducing a woman’s risk of breast cancer by expediting delivery of mammography and other test results, as well as providing state-of-the-art treatments, support services and breast cancer research. The Center’s objective is to provide unrestricted access to the best medical care for all women.

Individuals and corporations who wish to participate and support the Applause for the Cause Dionne Warwick and Sinbad event through sponsorships will be acknowledged on Comcast TV spots, on KBLX promotional announcements, in newspaper ads, and in the event program and other materials. (For sponsorship info, please click HERE). Tickets are available through www.tix.com at $65.00 for general admission and $90 for preferred general admission seating. A limited number of VIP tickets are $275.00 each and include pre-concert VIP reception, VIP table seating closest to the stage with adult beverage included and can be ordered by phone through the Alta Bates Summit Foundation main office by calling 510-204-1667.

Proceeds from the 2009 Applause for the Cause event will benefit the ongoing needs of the Carol Ann Read Breast Health Center, including:

  • The Nurse Navigator Program that provides cultural and linguistic assistance to patients and families who speak limited English, support and guidance to all patients as they undergo diagnosis and treatment, and outreach and education about breast health, screening and early detection to underserved communities.

  • Weekly patient education sessions and materials.

  • Monthly community education sessions at the Center, particularly for women in the East Bay at high risk for breast cancer.

  • Training of volunteers for the Center’s Compass Program. These volunteers are breast cancer survivors who mentor new patients and provide support, sympathy and hope.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
