This year’s Gala concert was the legendary Roger Daltrey  from the band “The Who” performing at least 20 of the Who songs with the attendees so close to the stage they could almost touch him.  The rock concert was a great time with drinks in hand, dancing and celebrating the night of Collaborating For A Cure. Past celebrity performers have included Ziggy Marley, Train, Peter Frampton, Gregg Allman, Kid Rock, Steely Dan, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, Sheryl Crow, John Fogerty, and Counting Crows.
