Coheed And Cambria Organize Alzheimer’s Benefit
Coheed and Cambria have organized a benefit show in New York City for Alzheimer’s Disease on October 19, 2007. The band has joined forces with the New York Chapter of The Alzheimer’s Association for what’s billed as “A concert to help end Alzheimer’s.” All proceeds from the concert will go to the organization and donations will be requested online.
About the benefit, Sanchez said: “This benefit is sort of my way of saying goodbye. My Aunt Toni lived in Manhattan and loved Manhattan. This disease ravaged her and our family. It’s hard for me to talk about, but if we can help fight this disease and encourage others to help fight it, then her loss wasn’t totally in vain.”
“It’s so encouraging to know that a generation of young people are getting involved in the fight against Alzheimer’s,” said Lou-Ellen Barkan, President and CEO of the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter. “By the year 2050 when Coheed and Cambria fans are in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, one in five New Yorkers will either have the disease or will be caring for someone who does. Our sincere thanks go out to Coheed and Cambria for generously sharing their talent, and supporting programs and services provided by the Alzheimer’s Association New York City Chapter.”
