DART Annual Benefit Concert

Posted on May 19, 2014

Kenny's upcoming show - May 30 at the Palace Theater - will benefit Dana's Angels Research Trust.

The concert will be preceded by a 45 minute program starting at 8:00 PM with celebrity hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Frank Gifford, a brief presentation about Dana’s Angels Research Trust, an opening musical performance and live auction!

DART is a public charity founded in 2002 by Phil and Andrea Marella, funds research into a rare disease affecting two of their children. The disease, Niemann-Pick type C is a fatal, cholesterol storage disease affecting children, though researchers believe unlocking the key to NPC may well lead to cures for HIV/Aids, heart disease, stroke and Alzheimer’s.

This will be the first year the event will be without Dana, who died last summer at 19. The couple said they are honored that in the year they are paying tribute to Dana, they are presenting a performer of Loggins' caliber and energy.

"He is just a brilliant singer and songwriter," said Phil Marella.
