Funk Out Cancer is a concert and silent auction in memory of Kate Gates Falaschi. Kate lost her battle to colon cancer in 2009. She was an organizer and a leader and when she believed in a cause, she attacked it full throttle. Before her passing, she asked friends to organize a memorial concert and donate proceeds to cancer research. Funk Out Cancer was created to fulfill her wish.
This year's concert will be held on November 14th at the Majestic Theater and will feature music from Phat Phunktion and Willy Porter.
All proceeds will be donated to to fund cancer research with Dr. Dustin Deming at the UW Carbone Cancer Center.
