RALEIGH (April 15, 2010) – Wake Radiology announces its support of the upcoming “Harmony Hope and Healing” concert, scheduled for Saturday, April 24 at the Meymandi Concert Hall at the Progress Energy Center in Raleigh. The practice has signed on as a platinum sponsor of the concert, which features barbershop and a cappella performances by the General Assembly Chorus, The Acoustix, and Jackpot.
“We are deeply grateful for Wake Radiology’s support both to us and to Pretty In Pink Foundation,” said Warren Fuson, President, RTP Chapter, Barbershop Harmony Society. “Their generous contribution as a platinum sponsor provides significant funding to pay for breast cancer treatment for uninsured or underinsured local patients. Without this crucial support, this event and others like it would simply not be possible.”
Two perfomances are scheduled on April 24 — 2pm and 7:30pm. Tickets are $25 for reserved seats and $20 for general admission; children under age 12 are $15/reserved and $10/general admission. www.generalassemblychorus.com

About the Pretty In Pink Foundation
Pretty In Pink was founded in 2004 by a Raleigh breast cancer surgeon, Lisa Tolnich, MD, after she began offering her services for free to women who had either delayed breast cancer treatment or who were considering interruption of treatment because of no insurance coverage. Dr. Tolnich formed the not-for-profit foundation after finding the need was greater than she alone could solve. Many area physicians and hospitals participate in Pretty In Pink by offering services to underinsured women at reduced costs. The foundation’s goal is to serve more economically disadvantaged women who need help in paying for breast cancer treatment. Pretty In Pink is funded primarily through the generosity of individuals, physicians, hospitals, businesses, grants and fundraising events.
