A long-running benefit concert built around the punk and reggae subgenre hits the decade mark this year, and it’s pretty heartwarming to think about all the patients who’ve benefited from the funds raised over the years. Proceeds from this year’s party will go towards Morton Plant Mease Healthcare Foundation’s Mammography Voucher Program, Cancer Support Services (CaPSS) and the Susan Cheek Needler Breast Center at Morton Plant Mease.
