The Tumornators and Jeff Francoeur of the Atlanta Braves present the 2nd Annual Rock4Research benefit concert on Nov. 28 at Wild Bill’s. The concert features Matt Moore opening for headliner Rhett Akins.
Akins is known for country hits including “What They’re Talking About,” “That Ain’t My Truck” and the No. 1 hit “Don’t Get Me Started.”
Francoeur, Matt Stinchcomb of the NFL, Morten Anderson and other sports stars will spend time with guests at a VIP party beforehand. VIPs will also be able to enjoy catered food sponsored by Kroger, Chick-Fil-A and Chili’s. VIPs will also have the opportunity to bid in a silent auction featuring signed sports memorabilia and other exclusive items; VIPs are guaranteed to receive signed picture of Francoeur.
All funds raised by The Tumornators are directly donated to The Children’s Tumor Foundation. The foundation is dedicated to raising money and awareness for the painful illnesses Neurofibromatosis and Schwannomatosis.
Francoeur has supported The Tumornators since their beginnings in 2007, and has donated $500 to the Children’s Tumor Foundation™ on behalf of The Tumornators for every home run he hit in his 2007 season with the Atlanta Braves.
Rock4Research tickets will be available at the door and online, costing $20 for the VIP party and $10 general admission. The VIP party begins at 8:00 p.m., and doors open for general admission at 7:00 p.m.
