Children’s Health Fund (CHF) will mark its 25th year of bringing pediatric mobile medical care to tens of thousands of underserved children in urban and rural areas throughout the United States with a star-studded benefit at Radio City Music Hall on Thursday, October 4.
The concert will bring together well-known artists who will perform as couples or with members of their families. The lineup includes Sting & Trudie Styler, Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson, James and Caroline Taylor, Steve Martin, Tina Fey & Jeff Richmond, Amy Grant & Vince Gill, Paul Simon & Edie Brickell, Stevie Wonder & Aisha Morris, Rubén Blades & Luba Mason.
The evening will underscore the crisis facing many of the nation’s children who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to receive proper medical care. Founded in 1987 by singer songwriter Paul Simon and pediatrician Irwin Redlener, M.D., Children’s Health Fund has operated 50 state-of-the-art, fully-equipped mobile medical units through 25 National Network projects in 17 states and Washington, DC.
“While we have made major strides and have provided almost three million medical encounters to children, there is still much to be done,” said Dr. Irwin Redlener, Children’s Health Fund co-founder and president. “We are truly grateful to the incredible lineup of talent assembled for this concert, and know the funds raised through this event will allow us to do even more in the future.”
