The Trina Fund Benefit Concert
Peridot & the Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra
Saturday, October 29, 2016 - 7:30 pm
Lawrence Memorial Chapel, Appleton
Enjoy a night of great music at the Lawrence Memorial Chapel with the band, Peridot, and the Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra. They are coming together for your listening pleasure to benefit a great cause. Net proceeds from the event will go to The Trina Fund, a fund within the Women's Fund for the Fox Valley Region. 
The Trina Fund was established by Trina Reynolds, the mother of Peridot band member, Hillary Reynolds. "This a very meaningful and personal event to me. I wanted to do something to bring the community together within the realm of music, during breast cancer awareness month while honoring my incredibly brave mother who passed away from breast cancer complications five years ago, this October." 
The Trina Fund helps female residents of Wisconsin diagnosed with breast cancer obtain the best possible care, including, but not limited to, travel to accredited cancer treatment centers throughout the United States. 

Tickets are $25 and advanced purchase is recommended.
