DENVER, CO (March 13th, 2013) - Black Book Gallery is using art as a platform to support Love Hope Strength Foundation’s (LHSF) mission of saving the lives of people with cancer. Cancer took the life of Co-owner Thomas Horne’s twin brother, Tim, as well as millions of others world-wide each year. The show titled, “Knock it Out” is Tom’s tribute to all the families,patients, and victims of this devastating disease. (http://www.knockitout.org). Everyone, in every corner of the world, knows someone affected by cancer, and on the evening of Friday, April 5th, 2013, Black Book Gallery invites us all to come together to celebrate the lives of our loved ones.
Horne and his partner, Will Suitts, at Black Book Gallery, have been working tirelessly to put together an amazing group of both national and international artists; many of whom are creating original works specifically for this show. These artists are leading the way in supporting LHSF’s “Get On the List” campaign, as well as LHSF’s Children’s Cancer Center in Tanzania. The night will be filled with art, music, fun, and a bone marrow drive which will allow you to register with the Get On the List Campaign. Black Book Gallery hopes to make a donation of $10K from original artwork sales that will help fund a Doctor at the Love Hope Strength Children’s Cancer Center in Tanzania.
About Love Hope Strength Foundation:
Love Hope Strength Foundation, is a music-centric charity dedicated to saving the lives of people with cancer, one concert at a time. LHSF was founded in 2007 by leukemia survivors Mike Peters (of the Welsh rock band The Alarm) and James Chippendale (president of CSI Entertainment). As the world’s leading rock-and-roll cancer foundation, LHSF primarily raises its funds through musical pilgrimages to majestic sites like Mt. Everest, Mt. Fuji and Machu Picchu. Through its partnership with DKMS (the world’s largest marrow registry), they head up bone marrow drives at concerts and major musical events like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and Austin City Limits. With more than 400 drives conducted, LHSF has added over 32,000 people to the national marrow database and found over 500 matches for patients in need of bone marrow transplants.
