The 5th Annual John P. McGowan Concert for a Cure

The first Concert for a Cure was held five years ago at Canalside. Event organizer Corey McGowan got the idea for the concert after his father, John P. McGowan, lost his battle with cancer in 2011. “I wanted to pay tribute to my father and support a cause that affects so many people”, explains son Corey McGowan. “My father’s wish was to one day be able to personally support the cause and help others in need. Unfortunately my father never lived to see that day so this is a wish my family and I are proud to fulfill for him”.

Rock out against cancer!
