Thank you once again to the amazing performers who donated their time and talent to the Katie Oppo Memorial concert held at Munsey Park School auditorium! Hats off to the Manhasset School District for their constant support!
Our 2014 concert featured the awesome, retro sounds of the reunited Great Neck band, The Rockets, as well as the contemporary sounds of our own Manhasset High freshmen Dan Oppo on lead guitar and Gavin Olsen on drums and Port Washington vocalist Bart Fuch and bass guitarist, Adam Tuch.
We were lucky to have an outstanding solo vocal performance by varsity Coach Simpkins–who stole the show with his amazing voice and the super talented guitarist who accompanied him Jake Atherton, who is also a solo virtuoso–thanks coach and Jake–what a team you turned out to be!
A huge thank you to Dr. Douglas Levine of Memorial Sloane Kettering who was on hand to deliver the long anticipated update from our first research grant. We await the publication of his successful results and look forward to continuing our support of this important ovarian cancer research.
The Queens College Dance team was also on hand lending the beauty of our own Caterina Anastasia and all of her lovely, talented team-mates!
We were lucky to have another awesome band, new to our stage this year–Alter Ego of Port Washington, featuring Keith Bresowsky, Patty Atkins, and Jeremy Michaels.
Thanks to all of our volunteers, and most of all to our supporters–we can not continue to fund research without you.
