    Train took the stage Wednesday evening (July 16) in Oyster Bay, New York for a private benefit concert supporting The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research. The event also featured Endometriosis Foundation of America's (EFA) co-founders Tamer Seckin, MD, and Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi.

    The $1.5 million raised at the event will be used by the Feinstein Institute to fund research in such therapeutic areas as cancer, inflammation, autoimmune disorders, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease. The Feinstein Institute is the research enterprise of the North Shore-LIJ Health System.

    Speaking on behalf of the band, lead singer Pat Monahan shared the band members' feelings about performing at the Feinstein Institute summer concert. "We recognize how profoundly lucky we are to have our health and the health of our families. When we were asked to play, we immediately said 'yes' because we understand the importance of the Feinstein Institute research as it relates to curing diseases. We are incredibly proud to have been a part of this wonderful event and inspired by the work being done," the singer said.
