The City Drive Group is proud to present "LESLIE'S WEEK The Concert 4Stage4" with "The Band Perry and featuring Giuliana Rancic." All proceeds from the event go to support LESLIE'S WEEK, a Stage 4 Breast Cancer nonprofit located in Arnold, MD. LESLIE'S WEEK gifts a week vacation to Stage 4 Breast Cancer women and their families where Memories Are Made that Outlast Cancer.
Sandra Gunn, the founder of LESLIE'S WEEK, was inspired by the courageous battle of her friend, Leslie Twohig, after losing her to Stage 4 Breast Cancer on April 2, 2011. "LESLIE'S WEEK began in honor of her life and in honor of all those women who have been told, 'You have Stage 4 Breast Cancer,'" said Sandra. "Vacation homes are donated for one week every year to families whose mother is diagnosed with Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer. This is a time for the family to create Memories that Outlast Cancer. It is the Mother who gives life, and it is her children who sustain it after she is gone."
Grammy®Award winning superstar sibling trio The Band Perry are an unstoppable presence in music. On their 2010 self-titled debut, they delivered five hit singles: the sextuple-platinum chart-topper "If I Die Young" (whose video is now Vevo-certified for reaching 100 million plays), the platinum-selling "You Lie" and "All Your Life" (a #1 single), "Hip to My Heart," and the gold-certified "Postcard from Paris." For their gold-certified 2013 follow-up "Pioneer," The Band Perry offered up the platinum-selling #1 singles "Better Dig Two" and "DONE" (a first for Reid and Neil as songwriters), as well as smash hits "Don't Let Me Be Lonely" and "Chainsaw." In February 2015, The Band Perry won their first Grammy®Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance and have also earned multiple awards from the likes of The Country Music Association, CMT Music Awards, the American Country Awards, and the Academy of Country Music. Recently named ambassadors for Teen Cancer America (a charity founded by The Who's Roger Daltrey), The Band Perry recently signed a new recording contract, a joint venture with Interscope Records and Mercury Nashville. Their single "Live Forever" is the official song of Team USA at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. The Band Perry are putting the finishing touches on their third studio album.
"It's been really rewarding to give these women something they wouldn't have been able to do without help," said Giuliana Rancic. Most notably known for her work as an anchor on E! News, co-hosting red carpet events, and her reality show, Giuliana and Bill, Giuliana Rancic is also a breast cancer survivor who now focuses on "empowering other women and talking about her experience in a positive way." Giuliana knows the importance of LESLIE'S WEEK and the non-profit work they do, coupled with being a Maryland native herself that makes this event even more significant.
