Presented in partnership with the LUNGevity Foundation, all proceeds from the performance support the cause of early lung cancer detection research. A high-spirited evening of music making and storytelling, A Musical Tribute to Walt Disney honors the imaginative genius who brought all of the joys and fantasies of childhood to life. In 1966, at the age of 65, Walt Disney died of lung cancer. In that year and the many that have followed, millions have watched a Disney movie or the Walt Disney television show, visited Disneyland or Disneyworld and have brought this icon’s life work into their homes. Few creative individuals have made such a long-lasting and indelible mark on American life and culture. Since its inception, Upstage Lung Cancer has funded nearly $3 million in early detection research grants, investing in the finest research opportunities available. This year, grants were awarded to leading doctors at the Koch Institute at MIT, Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute and Roswell Park Center (ULC’s funded research list is available at upstagelungcancer.org). Upstage Lung Cancer maintains ongoing partnerships with LUNGevity Foundation, Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute for their concerts.
