Recap: 8th Annual Dear Jack Benefit Concert

Share

“Cancer is an ugly beast but you found a way to make it beautiful tonight.”

Thank you to our 1800 friends (new and old) who joined our founder Andrew McMahon, Board of Directors, staff, and our Dear Jack Warriors this past weekend for our 11/10 VIP Night and 8th Annual Dear Jack benefit concert at the Ogden in Denver, CO. It was an incredible two days of music and community to raise awareness for Dear Jack’s programs and partners. We hope you had an amazing time. We know we did and we were honored to share the two days with you.

By the numbers:

  • 1 – The number of times Andrew played Konstantine
  • 21 – The number of songs in Andrew’s set on 11/11
  • 96 – The number of new potential donors added the national BMT registry on 11/11
  • 142 – The number of people who participated in our first annual 11/11 scavenger hunt
  • 34,000 – the number of times the 11/11 livestream was viewed
  • $90,000 – the total raised over the course of the two nights for Dear Jack’s mission
  • $187,000 – the 2017 100k Challenge final tally which ended at midnight on 11/11
  • 1,800 – The number of friends who joined us at the two events over the course of the weekend
  • The impact you had on Dear Jack’s cancer warriors, unmeasurable
  • Thank you for making this year’s benefit so beautiful. We’ll see you in 2018 if not before!
