Rock against cancer!
Journey will headline the 13th Annual Paul Reed Smith Guitars "One Night One Show One Cause Benefit" concert presented by The Baltimore Sun Media Group on Sunday, October 14, 2012 at the Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric in Baltimore, Maryland.
Real Housewives TV starlet Michaele Salahi will host a VIP pre-concert event, the "Journey of Hope Fashion Show." No stranger to the runway, Michaele has both hosted and modeled in numerous high profile fashion shows to including the Annual Rock the Runway Fashion Show on the National Mall and several Tommy Hilfiger "Fashion Fights MS Fashion Shows," benefiting multiple sclerosis.
Months ago, Paul Reed Smith contacted renowned guitarist Neal Schon to ask if Neal could secure Journey for this year's benefit. Neal immediately seized the opportunity to launch his vision of integrating his music with Michaele Salahi's fashion background to make this year's benefit a memorable event and to raise even more money for the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center.
The VIP Fashion Show will be produced by acclaimed fashion event producer Pamela DePalma of DePalma Enterprises; hairstyles for the "Journey of Hope Fashion Show" will be created by celebrity hairstylist Kristan Serafino; makeup by Robyn Tamura; and celebrity fashion expert Chamisa Lamm is styling the show featuring clothing from Andrew Charles & Baltimore's own Boutique 1017. New York–based DJ, Charles Browne, will be spinning throughout the pre-party and fashion show.
A live auction will feature signature PRS Guitars autographed and donated by music royalty such as Carlos Santana, Neal Schon, Mark Tremonti, Slash, Taylor Swift and more.
Beverages will be provided by American Harvest Organic Spirit, with catering by Harriet Dopkin of the Classic Catering People.
Seats begin at $75. VIP tickets at $250, $500, $1000 and includes premier seating and access to VIP Pre-party. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster. All ages are welcome. For more information, visit the The Lyric's website. All proceeds to benefit the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center.
"One Night One Show One Cause Benefit" is the flagship benefit concert of PRS Guitars. Since 2000, PRS Guitars has raised more than $2 million for the Living with Cancer Resource Program at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. The Living with Cancer Resource Program offers supportive care programming and education to cancer patients and families at Johns Hopkins - free of charge. Johns Hopkins is recognized as a global leader in the fight against cancer.
