Rockin' Docs for Diabetes Cure, the 6th annual benefit concert/fundraising event, will be held on Saturday, April 16, 2016, at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, PA, and is open to fans of all ages. All profits will benefit the JDRF. Last year's concert featured four established local bands which included multiple doctor-musicians from several large hospital centers in the Philadelphia area (including Abington Memorial Hospital, Aria Health, Christiana Hospital, Cooper University Hospital, Holy Redeemer Hospital, Princeton Health Care, RWJ Hamilton
Saint Peter’s Healthcare System, Virtua Health, Wills Eye Hospital and Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine). General admission tickets well go on sale in the near future.
Our past five Rockin Docs concerts have been great successes. Our last event grossed almost $55,000, with all of the net proceeds benefiting JDRF. Over the past five years, we had extensive pre-event publicity (front page/feature story of the Weekend Section of the Inquirer, CBS TV and ABC TV (band appearances), WMGK, WBEN, Local Living magazine, Main Line magazine, Jewish Exponent, and more). In the past we have received signed items for auction from the likes of Van Halen, Carlos Santana, Neil Young, and Sheryl Crow among others. Our first two concerts were hosted by WMGK's Andre Gardner and then two years by BEN FM's Marilyn Russell, and last year by WXPN's Michaela Majoun..
Rockin’ Docs was created in 2010 by Kenneth Einhorn M.D (on right), Jeremy Jaffe M.D. (on left - himself diagnosed with type 1 diabetes over 20 years ago), and Nancy Wolfson, all of whom are parents of children with type 1 diabetes. Their goal is that no family should ever have to deal with the pain and anxiety in learning a loved one has developed diabetes. And no one should ever have to carry the heavy burden of this disease throughout their lifetime.
