Congratulations to Event Chair ALISSA POLLACK and the entire CITY OF HOPE's TASTE OF HOPE committee, as this year's event at THREE SIXTY in MANHATTAN shattered attendance records.
450+ guests, including TAYLOR SWIFT, packed the venue to enjoy fine wine and dining, and to bid on auction items, with proceeds going to fighting cancer via the CITY OF HOPE.
A portion of last night's proceeds will go to the JASON POLLACK MEMORIAL FUND, (ALISSA's father) to launch a program with MUSICIANS ON CALL at CITY OF HOPE.
POLLACK told ALL ACCESS, "I'm still speechless from the incredible attendance and generosity. We shattered all attendance and revenue records for this year's event. Nothing is more awesome than seeing every radio group and every label in one room, putting competition aside, and uniting for an incredible cause, CITY OF HOPE. My sincerest thanks to everyone who attended and to my amazing committee for their tireless work to make TASTE OF HOPE such a huge success."
In addition to POLLACK, the other committee members are IDJMG President/COO STEVE BARTELS, RCA RECORDS President/COO TOM CORSON, DEF JAM EVP SHAWN "PECAS" COSTNER, BACCHUS IMPORTERS President BRUCE GEARHART, THE COLLECTIVE Manager MARCUS GRANT, WARNER BROS. RECORDS EVP Promotion PETER GRAY, and AZOFF MUSIC CEO RICHARD PALMESE.
