Popular summer fundraiser benefits Women’s and Children’s Health at Greenwich Hospital
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Greenwich, CT (January 9, 2018) — Greenwich Hospital announced today that Greenwich native Caroline Jones will perform at the annual Under the Stars event on Friday, June 22 at Riverside Yacht Club from 6:30 to 11:30 pm.
Jones was recently ranked #2 on Billboard’s “15 Country Artists to Watch in 2018” and will tour this year in support of her 2018 album release, sharing the stage with JimmyBuffett, the Eagles and Zac Brown Band.
Under the Stars will also feature a music performance by multi-award winning cover band, The Short Bus. This popular local group recently became the first band to consecutively win both the “Grand Band Slam” poll in Fairfield Weekly Magazine and “Best of the Gold Coast” poll by Greenwich, Westport, Darien, New Canaan and Rowayton Magazines.
More than 400 guests from Fairfield and Westchester counties are expected to attend this year’s festivities. In addition to the music, Under the Stars will include a live auction, silent auctions, high-end wine and liquor auction, and a seated dinner service with an open bar for all guests. During the evening, Patricia Calayag, MD will be honored as a leader in the field of obstetrics and gynecology.
Co-chairs Andrea Sinkin Jaffe and Jennifer Turano, along with a committee of dedicated volunteers, are planning this casual evening of music to benefit the hospital’s comprehensive range of women’s and children’s health services.
“To date, Under the Stars has raised over $3.25 million for women’s and children’s services at Greenwich Hospital,” said Jaffe. “We loved the live concert element of last year’s benefit, which featured a performance by Gavin DeGraw, so we are thrilled to bring great music to this event once again in hopes of raising even more money for this important cause.”
