Earth, Wind and Fire to perform for Denver Health Foundation | Arts & Culture
Philip Bailey, lead singer of Earth, Wind & Fire will be getting back to his roots when the band performs at NightShine, Denver Health Foundation’s annual fundraising gala, on April 28, 2012 at the National Western Events Center.
After all, Bailey was born at Denver Health in 1951 and graduated from East High School. Earth, Wind & Fire is widely known as one of the most musically accomplished, critically acclaimed, and commercially popular funk bands of the ‘70s. The band has won six Grammy Awards and four American Music Awards. They have been inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Vocal Group Hall of Fame and have sold over 90 million albums worldwide. Rolling Stone has described them as "innovative, precise yet sensual, calculated yet galvanizing" and has also declared that the band "changed the sound of black pop.” Tickets and table sales to the full NightShine Gala, including cocktail hour, four-course dinner, auction and performance start at $500 and can be purchased by contacting Candice Jones at (303) 602-2978 or Candice.firstname.lastname@example.org. A limited number of concert-only tickets will be available for $50.This is a rare opportunity to see the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire in a small, intimate venue and what’s more, 100 percent of the $50 ticket price benefits the Denver Health Foundation. Concert-only tickets may be purchased after Feb. 20 at www.ticketswest.com.
Since its establishment more than 150 years ago, Denver Health has evolved into a comprehensive health system regarded nationally as a successful model. One in three of our city’s residents depend on Denver Health’s system for critical resources like its acute care hospital featuring the region’s only Level 1 trauma center, school-based and community clinics, the Rocky Mountain Poison & Drug Center, the Center for Medical Response to Terrorism and more. Inarguably the state’s busiest hospital, Denver Health still manages to perform a vital balancing act: It provided more than $450 million in uncompensated care last year alone and ranks nationally in specialties like trauma, orthpaedics, infectious disease, complications due to eating disorders and urology. As the charitable support organization for Denver Health, the Denver Health Foundation raises private funds to support patient care, medical research, facilities development, academic program enrichment, equipment purchases, and professional education.
