Cross Eyed Cat Benefit Concert @ Waterbury Elks Lodge
Mar 24 @ 12:00 pm

Cross Eyed Cat’s Rock Out for the Kids!

The Waterbury Elks Lodge will be full of Rock N’ Blues as The Cross Eyed Cats take over the stage. Join Cross Eyed Cat and three guest bands as they rock Sunday away for the kids. Tickets include admission as well as a buffet lunch/dinner. Cash bar will be available.

Inspired by the great urology care his daughter received as an infant, Tommy Sanchez decided he could make a difference for other children doing what he loves. Started back in 2011 by Sweet Eddie Sanchez, Tommy Sanchez and Joe Gabriel, this spectacular concert has raised $94,000 to date. And these guys aren’t messing around – they have their sights set on exceeding $100,000 in lifetime giving this year.

Come out and show your support for Connecticut Children’s Urology Department and Connecticut Children’s – Waterbury at St. Mary’s. Tickets are available online or at the door.


Evening of Rock ‘n Roll @ Parrott Delaney Tavern
Mar 24 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Rock N’ Roll the Night Away!

The New Hartford Lion’s Club extends an open invitation to the public to celebrate with them at an exciting evening featuring rock n’ roll music and dancing*. Dedicated to helping the community, their efforts make an impact locally by providing critical support to the Family Support Fund for the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.

Some of the families who receive support through the Hematology/Oncology Family Support Fund have a small need. Social workers might provide vouchers for a family to have dinner in our cafeteria while their child is admitted. Families have also received bus passes or parking in our garage to give them peace of mind that they can travel to and from appointments or make the trip to the Medical Center to see their child.

Other families may find themselves with a greater need. Consider a family with two modest incomes and two children. That family depends on the dual incomes to pay the bills. But when one of those children receives a devastating cancer diagnosis, one parent may need to leave their job to be there for their child. Suddenly the family is at risk of losing their home during a very difficult time. This is where Family Support Funds come in to pay household expenses for that family so they can stay where they belong—in their home and at the bedside of their child.

Tickets are available through New Hartford Lion’s Club members, or by calling 860-496-1721, and at the door.

*A limited food menu will be available through the Parrott Delaney Tavern.
