Passion for bashin’ cancer

Posted By

This past weekend the Purple Community team had the pleasure of attending Birthday Bash at Fifth Third Ballpark! The event wasn’t just filled with amazing country music, but also overwhelming support for Van Andel Institute’s (VAI) cancer research programs. We were thrilled to be presented with a check from The Intersection and B-93 for a $20,000 donation to VAI!

Leading up to Birthday Bash, we had the pleasure of partnering with B-93 and The Intersection for our Country Kicks Cancer concert series. One dollar of every country concert ticket sold benefits cancer research. Through ticket and merchandise sales, these concerts contributed to the $20,000 total, and at Birthday Bash alone over $1,400 was raised!


As we wrap up Birthday Bash, we are already looking forward to the Country Kicks Cancer concerts we have coming up this summer. Make sure you get your tickets for the June 22 LANCO concert and check out our event calendar for more dates!
