CAPITOL MUSIC GROUP Chairman/CEO JASON FLOM will be the guest of honor at CITY OF HOPE’s third annual Music and Entertainment Industry Roast at TAVERN ON THE GREEN in NEW YORK on MAY 21st. Stand-up comic and FRIAR’S CLUB celebrity roaster JEFFREY ROSS will serve as the event’s emcee. Joining ROSS at the podium will be EPIC RECORDS Pres. CHARLIE WALK, TWISTED SISTER front man DEE SNIDER, hip-hop artist FAT JOE and HITS magazine editor LENNY BEER. The evening will also feature a special performance by singer/songwriter JILL SOBULE.
"The music industry has a long history of support for City of Hope," FLOM said. "The work of the physicians and scientists there is truly incredible, they're moving their research quickly into new treatments, and contributing to the development of some of the most effective anticancer drugs on the market. I'm glad to be a part of any effort to make their discoveries possible, even if it means being roasted by my peers."
