Jamey Johnson, Jessi Colter and Shooter Jennings perform at the Down and Out for City of Hope.
Country music lovers and City of Hope supporters raised the roof at the Down and Out Bar in downtown Los Angeles, all in the name of raising funds for breast cancer research. A Country Cure, hosted in late March by Misty Swain, featured performances by Jamey Johnson, Jessi Colter and Shooter Jennings, as well as a raffle of signed albums from Jennings. City of Hope's Courtney Vito, M.D., spoke, and an auction for dinner with Jennings, Misty Swain and Jessi Colter brought in additional funds for the cause. Swain has a personal connection to the mission of City of Hope, having experienced the compassionate care firsthand. "It was a beautiful night and next year will be even bigger," said Swain. Employees sported 'Women's Cancers, Women's Cures' tees in support of the evening's theme. Learn more about City of Hope's breast cancer program >>
