‘A Salute to the Eagles’ – The Hormel Institute presents Hotel California

Published 8:40 am Monday, May 14, 2018

The Hormel Institute will hold a cancer research fundraising concert on July 10 at the Ray Live Learning Center. The concert will feature Hotel California “A Salute to the Eagles.”

This Paint the Town Pink event will be a night full of great connection and special surprises, say organizers. It is a chance for those attending to not only further cancer research, but also honor those affected by cancer.

“We are excited to hold this new Paint the Town Pink event in the Ray Live Learning Center,” said Hormel Institute Executive Director Dr. Zigang Dong. “And we are so thankful that every dollar from this concert will go toward cancer research and allow our scientists to continue researching projects that might not otherwise be funded.”

Thanks to generous benefactors Gary and Pat Ray and Hy-Vee Foods, all proceeds from this concert will further ongoing innovative cancer research at The Hormel Institute, University of Minnesota.
