GALA FEATURING BENEFIT CONCERT BY THE BAND AMERICA
RAISES OVER $400,000 FOR DANA’S ANGELS RESEARCH TRUST

 

On Thursday night, June 7, 2007, at the Rich Forum in Stamford, Connecticut, Grammy Award® winning musicians AMERICA wowed almost 400 exclusive guests with an incredible concert, singing all-time favorites like “Horse With No Name”, “Sister Golden Hair”, “Ventura Highway”, “You Can Do Magic” and great songs from their new hit album HERE AND NOW. The concert, AMERICA’s first truly benefit effort, was part of a gala evening for DANA’S ANGELS RESEARCH TRUST, raising over $400,000, the largest sum raised from a single event by the Greenwich, Connecticut based charity, which funds scientific and medical research for a rare and fatal children’s disease, Niemann-Pick type C. Dana’s Angels Research Trust’s, or DART’s principal partner and benefactor for the gala was MasterCard Worldwide.

Making the evening extra special were MCs Kathie Lee and Frank Gifford, and Honorary Chairperson Michelle Phillips, actress and singer, and former member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band, The Mamas And The Papas. Two of the highlights of the night were wonderful surprises, as guest Billy Baldwin, who is married to Michelle Phillip’s daughter Chynna Phillips, surprised and delighted the audience with the impromptu auction of a walk-on part to his upcoming ABC-TV series, DIRTY SEXY MONEY. Greatest of all of the memories came during AMERICA’s concert performance when the audience was treated to a truly MasterCard, priceless moment when Michelle Phillips joined the band in its performance of The Mamas And The Papas hit song “California Dreamin’.”

Other guests in attendance were Hannah Storm and Dan Hicks, Bill Evans and his wife Dana, Mary Quick Pedersen, who hosted the event’s patron party, Lynn Pedersen, Amy McCracken and Jeanne Evert Dubin, tennis star Chris Evert’s sister.

A few of the other fabulous auction items at the pre-concert gala included a one-hour hit with tennis champion Chris Evert; an anonymously donated one-of-a-kind Tiffany & Co. platinum and diamond necklace with a diamond pendant totaling over 15 carats; and table rights for a night at the famous “Rao’s” restaurant in New York City. In addition to MasterCard Worldwide, DART received other generous individual, corporate and foundation support from Altus One Fund, Lois Pope, Mary Ellen and Jeffrey Jay, VH1, Pels Charitable Trust, Beuth Foundation, Cohen Foundation, Dove Givings Foundation and Wal*Mart.

DART was founded in 2002 by Phil and Andrea Marella of Greenwich to fund medical research, medical education and medical or hospital care for the treatment or cure of Niemann-Pick type C disease, a genetic disorder in which harmful quantities of cholesterol accumulate in cells, causing the cells to die. The disease usually appears early in life and most children with Niemann-Pick type C die by their early teens. Two of the Marella’s four children, daughter Dana 13, and son Andrew 8, have the disease.

 

 

DART has now raised more than $1,000,000 for critical medical
and scientific research. For more information please visit: WWW.DANASANGELS.ORG.
