RED releases its second annual run of limited edition copies in pink vinyl for NATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH this OCTOBER, from RUN THE JEWELS, STURGILL SIMPSON, INGRID MICHAELSON, JOEY BADA$$, BETWEEN THE BURRIED AND ME, CHET FAKER, CLUTCH, AL GREEN, PIERCE THE VEIL and PRIMUS. The exclusive TEN BANDS ONE CAUSE releases are available for purchase TODAY at retailers nationwide, wherever vinyl is sold, and proceeds sponsor GILDA'S CLUB NYC.
Over a year ago, RED teamed up with some of its premier label partners and artists to create and launch the program, which raised nearly $30,000 in 2014 for GILDA'S CLUB NYC, an innovative cancer support organization founded in 1995 by psychotherapist JOANNA BULL, GENE WILDERN, MANDY PATINKIN, JOEL SIEGEL, among others, in memory of SNL actor/ comedienne GILDA RANDER who passed away in 1989 from cancer.
Commented INGRID MICHAELSON: "I lost my mother to cancer last year and want to do all I can do to help those affected by this cruel disease. I am honored to be a part of this campaign."
Added CLUTCH's JP, "Breast cancer is something that affects each one of us. We are honored to lend our support to GILDA'S CLUB NYC and their mission to support, empower, and educate cancer patients and their families."
GILDA'S CLUB NYC CEO LILY SAFANI commented: "When someone gets diagnosed with cancer it impacts everyone who is close to them -- in many different ways. The daily routine of life now includes doctors' visits, weekly treatments and unprecedented medical expenses. The new 'routine' is difficult to manage and navigate alone. But at GILDA'S CLUB NYC, we help cancer patients and their families learn how to live with a cancer diagnosis -- through our support groups, educational lectures, and classes. It's important to know you aren't alone and at GILDA'S CLUB, you never are."
