Music, Film and Entertainment Industries Taste of Hope

Since the Music, FIlm and Entertainment Industry group’s founding in 1973, more than $113 million has been raised to support City of Hope’s mission to cure — and ultimately prevent — cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. The group represents the music industry’s senior level executives from all major labels, law firms, artist management and music publishing companies. Members have partnered with City of Hope to save lives through their fundraising support and patient referrals. Each year, 100 million lives are touched by the discoveries at City of Hope. City of Hope also collaborates on clinical trials and research programs with cancer centers and hospitals in your area.

A portion of funds raised at the 11th annual Taste of Hope will go to the Jason Pollack Memorial Fund at Musicians on Call, which supports music programming for patients and their families at City of Hope.
