September 7-9 Big Weekend – The Foundation’s BIG WEEKEND (please see above) brought together an amazing confluence of partnerships and relationships. Throughout the weekend, we had the help of a team of volunteers from Southwest Airlines “Team SWA” and countless others. For the Play Like A Champion Today concert, there were several important partners at the University of Notre Dame, particularly ND’s Department of Film, Theatre, and Television. The Benefit Concert brought together support from Live Nation, the Chicago House of Blues, Alchemedia Productions, Rich Daniels, Chicago Federation of Musicians, and Panacea Entertainment, and three local music programs: Intonation Music, The People’s Music School, and the VanderCook College of Music One City Program. The Intoxicats concert/Instrument Drive was a great success thanks to the amazing Intoxicats, Chuck Wiggins, Martyrs, Hungry for Music and D’Addario Foundation, and of course all of the supporters who brought instruments!
