We raised over $75,000 for our cause, thanks to those in attendance and our amazing 2018 sponsors and community partners

Purpose of annual benefit concert

Started in 2009 after Ryan received his first stem cell treatment for Muscular Dystrophy. Ryan and his siblings have grown this event each year to raise support and awareness for stem cell therapy to help allow others the same opportunity for treatment.

As a tax-exempt, 501(c)3 all proceeds benefit patients seeking treatment, through education and patient care programs. CTFAC is grateful that many of the event expenses are covered through the help from local businesses and vendors. Having local support allows CTFAC to make a nationwide impact for others with terminal diseases to gain access to potentially life-saving stem cell therapy.
