PHILADELPHIA, PA – October 18, 2019 – Entercom, a leading media and entertainment company and one of the two largest radio broadcasters in the U.S., shared the lineup for its star-studded, highly anticipated concert “7th Annual We Can Survive, presented by AT&T,” in Los Angeles. The RADIO.COM event, hosted by 97.1 AMP Radio (KAMP-FM), will feature musical performances by Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Camila Cabello, Jonas Brothers, Lizzo, Marshmello and Becky G on Saturday, October 19 at the iconic Hollywood Bowl. Proceeds from the event will help the American Cancer Society save more lives from breast cancer.
“‘We Can Survive’ will bring together legendary artists on an iconic stage for a great cause,” said Michael Martin, Senior Vice President of Programming and Music Initiatives, Entercom. “We’re looking forward to bringing audiences together for an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind evening. The anticipation for this event has been outstanding, with tickets selling out in under 30 minutes.”
“The ‘7th Annual We Can Survive, presented by AT&T’ will proudly benefit the American Cancer Society,” said Jeff Federman, Regional President and Market Manager, Entercom Southern California. “Along with AT&T and the rest of our partners, we’re honored to support their mission and look forward to celebrating survivors.”
“Our partners at Entercom have once again created an iconic lineup to celebrate survivors,” said Sharon Byers, Chief Development Marketing and Communications Officer, American Cancer Society. “We are honored to accept the proceeds from ‘We Can Survive’ and we remain committed to continuing our research and support as we attack breast cancer from every angle.”
The American Cancer Society funds research into reducing breast cancer risk and identifying new ways to detect and treat the disease, with the goal of one day being able to prevent breast cancer altogether. It also provides free patient services and information and support for early detection, treatment, and survivorship. The American Cancer Society will benefit in two ways: Entercom will donate $2 for every ticket sold, and AT&T will donate $1 per tweet or retweet, up to $100,000, for every time the hashtag #WECANSURVIVE is used on Twitter the day of the event. Donations help the American Cancer Society attack breast cancer from every angle, like breakthrough research, a live 24/7 cancer helpline for answers and support, free rides to treatments and free lodging near treatment centers for cancer patients. Last year, donations to the American Cancer Society helped provide approximately 34,000 wigs to cancer patients, saving them over two million dollars. The ACS has also provided over 480,000 free rides to treatments and over 475,000 free nights of lodging to cancer patients and their caregivers during treatment, saving them over $49 million dollars.
