Star-Driven Benefit Event to Help Provide Music Therapy to Sick Children
Date:3/4/2009

Children's Music Fund offers up an evening of incredible auction items, music and festivity at premier benefit.

LOS ANGELES, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- On March 14th, Children's Music Fund will have its first annual "Healing Through Music" benefit featuring world class music, delicious food, award winning wines and a one-of-a-kind silent auction filled with priceless music memorabilia. The Los Angeles based Children's Music Fund (CMF) mission is to provide musical instruments and music therapy to children with chronic and life-altering illness. All proceeds including an impressive list of items up for auction will go to building mobile recording studios in greater Los Angeles hospitals.

Items include VIP tickets to one of the last tapings of the Tonight Show, System Of A Down autographed instrument package, and guitars and keyboards signed by members of Smashing Pumpkins, Counting Crows, Slash, Alien Ant Farm, Jane's Addiction, Velvet Revolver, 311, Sinbad, and Jay Leno among other equally interesting items.

Founded in 2002, CMF is the brainchild of Raffi Tachdjian M.D., MPH, a professor at UCLA who was inspired by a 16-year-old guitar-playing patient who died from a rare kind of bone cancer. To raise money to buy instruments and provide music therapy, Tachdjian has produced three compilation CDs that include artists such as Mia Doi Todd, Milosh, children's singer Raffi, and others. As interest in the Children's Music Fund grows, Tachdjian plans to expand its reach to as many seriously ill children as possible by taking the program directly to them. "We plan to set up mobile recording studios with recording equipment and instruments in pediatric hospitals so that children, some of whom stay for months on end, are able to cope with their illness and pain."

According to The American Cancer Society, music therapy can result in a decreased need for pain medication and increases quality of life in cancer patients.

The First Annual 'Healing Through Music' Benefit will honor longtime friends of CMF Jay Leno, Coach Rick Neuheisel, West LA Music, and The Hagen Family Foundation. The evening will include entertainment by vocalist Vanya Green and the award-winning Element Band, wine tasting and appetizers, and silent Auction Healing Through Music benefit, Thos. Moser Furniture Gallery at 8705 Washington Boulevard (Helms Bakery Building) in Culver City, California, Saturday March 14, 7pm-11pm.

Tickets $50 per person, 310-204-5726.
