Victory! Good music x good cause!
Onetime American Idol winner David Cook performed at a benefit concert at Jammin Java in Virginia on December 2 and he celebrated reaching a $1 million fundraising goal for brain cancer research with his fans across the globe.
Since 2009, Cook and his fans had raised $930,000 for brain cancer research through the Race for Hope DC and various other events. So back in November, Cook set a goal of raising the remaining $70,000 (to get to a $1 million) to benefit Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure (ABC2), a venture philanthropy organization. And guess what? He and his fans did it!
Cook has been a champion for brain cancer research since losing his beloved brother Adam to the disease. "It's one of my proudest life experiences to be involved in this fight," said Cook. "The way the fans have galvanized around this cause has been huge."
Amen to that! Great work, David Cook and your loyal, dedicated fans!
