2nd Annual Checkmates Benefit Concert
April 6, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm
Congratulations to our friend Dr. Jim Allison who was recently awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize for Medicine! Save the date and don’t miss a chance to see him live in concert on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at the Firehouse Saloon with his band the Checkmates as he jams out on vocals and blues harp with fellow band members Dr. Greg Lizee (drums), Dr. Anthony Lucci (guitar), Dr. Tony Conley (bass), Dr. Scott Woodman (lead vocals), Nina Boulton (vocals), Dr. Patrick Hwu (keyboard), Dr. Powel Brown (trumpet), Scott Krueger (trombone), and Dr. Ferran Prat (sax). The Checkmates are primarily made up of MD Anderson Cancer Center doctors and staff.
Doors open at 6:30PM and you can plan to dance the night away! All proceeds raised will benefit Halo House, and help to provide a “home away from home” to blood cancer patients in treatment at the Texas Medical Center at our brand new facility, opening mid-2019! Call us at 713-665-8852 with questions or for more information.
