PRS Guitars holds benefit for Kimmel Cancer Center

The Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center’s Living With Cancer Resource Program will be the beneficiary of an event hosted this week by Paul Reed Smith Guitars.

One Night, One Show, scheduled for 7 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 3, at Bourbon Street in downtown Baltimore, will feature guitar prodigy Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers and the Derek Trucks Band along with storied vocalist Susan Tedeschi, who will bring their unique southern blues rock style to this exclusive duo performance.

The Paul Reed Smith Band will also appear, joined on guitar by special guest William Nelson, director of the cancer center.

A live auction featuring guitars embellished by local artists will be hosted by Jon Levinson of Alex Cooper Auctioneers.

Since 2000, PRS Guitars has raised more than $2 million for the Living with Cancer Resource Program, which offers supportive care programming and education to patients and families, free of charge.

General admission for the show, which is appropriate for all ages, is $40. VIP admission of $100 includes open bar, food and access to the VIP upper-level viewing area. Tickets are available through MissionTix.
