Proceeds from the concert will be donated by Stand Up for a Cure to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (http://www.bcrfcure.org), founded by Evelyn Lauder in 1993. The foundation is credited for creating the "pink ribbon" and is recognized by Money Magazine as one of America's top eight charities having raised over $220 million.

"I am delighted to announce that The Breast Cancer Research Foundation will partner with Stand Up for a Cure for a wonderful concert event featuring one of the world's best entertainers -- Barry Manilow," says Mrs. Evelyn H. Lauder, Founder and Chairman.

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation's mission is to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime by providing critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide, and increasing public awareness about good breast health.
