Sensational Summer Concert Recap
What an amazing turnout we had for the Sensory Processing Disorder benefit concert hosted by the Hard Rock Café! Over 250 guests packed the venue to see Coles Whalen and her band. Our VIP ticket holders had an incredible experience in the Green Room before the concert, as they had cocktails and snacked on the wonderful appetizers donated by the Hard Rock Café, met the band and special guests, and talked to the fabulous DJs who emceed for us. Not to mention the gift bags they received loaded with goodies!
Cha Cha Chavez with Jammin’ 101.5 and Mark Andrew with Mix 100 got the evening started and the crowd excited for the entertainment by giving away a set of Peter Frampton concert tickets. Then the band hit the stage and the party was on. Coles and the band were sensational and Coles had some special guests singing a few songs with her as well. Jim Dalton with The Railbenders joined the band and brought another surprise guest, Jake Schroeder from Opie Gone Bad! Their harmony together was spot on. Not long after that, Josh and Seth Larson from Something Underground took the stage with Coles and blew us all away again.
Shannon Stone with Dial Global stepped in during the break to announce the Sensational Sweepstakes. Throughout the evening guests donated money for our sweepstakes give-a-ways. Lucky winners went home with a Tennessee Traveler guitar autographed by Coles Whalen and her band (donated by Samick Music Corp.), Foo Fighter concert tickets, an autographed collection of country super star CDs, a diamond necklace from Trice Jewelers, and Jake Schroeder topped it off by throwing in a set of his personal Avalanche Tickets.
None of this would have been possible without the gracious donations from all of our sensational sponsors. Because of these incredible sponsorships and all of you who joined us for the evening, the Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation raised over $7,000 for research, education, and advocacy!
A big thank you goes out to Hard Rock Café, Coles Whalen and her band, our generous sponsors, and all of you who attended! You made this event a night to remember and a success for all the families touched by Sensory Processing Disorder.
