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

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.”

Tickets are $100 each and are on sale now at www.eventbrite.com/e/a-concert-for-cancer-research-hotel-california-a-salute-to-the-eagles-tickets-45736708727 or at The Hormel Institute from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Paint the Town Pink and The Hormel Institute are looking for a few special $1,000 sponsors who will donate 10 tickets so that “free of charge” tickets can be provided to families whose lives have been affected by cancer.

Sponsor gifts will give these families an evening of carefree fun at The Hormel Institute.

Those interested in sponsoring a pack of tickets may contact Paint the Town Pink Director Kathi Finley at 507-460-0259, email GoPTTP@gmail.com or purchase online at hi.umn.edu. Sponsors will be specially recognized or may remain anonymous. Sponsors can also designate who they would like to receive the tickets.

The concert will be held at 7 p.m. at the Ray Live Learning Center at The Hormel Institute with a reception starting at 6 p.m.

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.
