Discovery Arts Brings Music, Art, & Dance to Kids with Cancer

2015 Grammy award-winning jazz ensemble, Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band, and the multi-Grammy award-winning a capella vocal group, Take 6, come together one night only for a benefit concert in support of the nonprofit organization Discovery Arts to be held at Royce Hall.

 

Discovery Arts is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing free, interactive music, art, dance, and drama programs to children with cancer and life-threatening illnesses while they are receiving treatment in the hospital.  The program helps these children step outside the confines of their illness and into a world of creativity and imagination. Children with cancer have enormous emotional needs, they need a safe place to express their feelings, they need relief from the pain and chaos of critical treatments and they desperately need creativity and large doses of fun. Discovery Arts helps to provide these kids with as much normalcy as possible.

 

Currently Discovery Arts is providing programs in 7 hospitals including Mattel Children’s Hospital at UCLA, Miller Children’s Hospital Long Beach, Jonathan Jaques Children’s Cancer Center at Millers, CHOC Children’s Hospital, Fountain Valley Regional Hospital and Medical Center, CHOC at Mission and at Mercy Children’s Hospital in Springfield, Missouri.

 

The Benefit Concert takes place August 23rd at 4pm at UCLA Royce Hall. There will also be an After-Party at 6pm. Guests will enjoy hors d’oeuvres and a signature wine and champagne reception, live music, a silent auction, and gift bags. All proceeds from the After-Party benefit Discovery Arts.
