John P. McGowan Concert for a Cure Saturday, November 11th from Noon until 8pm at Buffalo RiverWorks. Their tagline is “Rock Out Against Cancer” and they’ve got 15 local bands to do the rocking–some of which are listed below. This is all to support the American Cancer Society. 100% of all ticket sales ($10) will go directly to the American Cancer Society (Relay for Life) to support cancer research.
This event began in 2013 and has been held at Canalside in Buffalo, NY for 3 consecutive years. In August of 2011, John P. McGowan lost his battle with cancer. John was a patient at Roswell Park, and during his time there his family grew a strong compassionate relationship with the Roswell staff and patients. “I wanted to pay tribute to my father and support a cause that affects so many people,”, said John’s son Corey McGowan. “My father’s wish was to one day be able to personally support the cause and help others in need. Unfortunately, my father never lived to see that day so this is a wish my family and I are proud to fulfill for him.”
