THE CHRIS THOMAS BIG BAND Sweetheart Valentine's Day Ball Benefitting The Funk-Zitiello Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research and Support
We have all been touched by the heartache and struggle that cancer brings to a loved one, friend or colleague. In the music world we have lost amazing artists like Aretha Franklin, Sharon Jones (Dap Kings), Dizzy Gillespie, Count Basie and Henry Mancini to pancreatic cancer. The Chris Thomas Band has a special friend, Judi Zitiello of Jacksonville/Ponte Vedra, who is in her 4th year of fighting this disease. All proceeds from this event will go to the Funk-Zitiello Foundation for pancreatic cancer research at Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville.
