An amazing charity event is happening February 4, and you are invited to be part of it!
Mike Peters of The Alarm and The Love Hope Strength Foundation will host Love Hope Strength Big Night In next month. The hour-long event will include live and recorded musical performances, updates on the fight against cancer, and a silent auction of musical memorabilia.
February 4 is World Cancer Day and as a cancer survivor, Peters has spent years fundraising for medical care for others. His wonderful wife Jules recently fought cancer as well, and they want to ensure others can receive proper medical care.
“I live with leukemia and my wife Jules recently underwent surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy following a breast cancer diagnosis,“ he says. “Having received excellent care ourselves, we’ve long been advocates of working to ensure that people in low-to-middle income countries can access better cancer treatment, and we remain committed to this.”
Peters created the Love Hope Strength Cancer Care Foundation in the UK and US more than 15 years ago. It has raised more than one million dollars for cancer programs and helped save at least 4,500 lives by registering people as potential blood stem cell donors at shows and events.
The night promises to be uplifting and entertaining with performances from Peters himself, and other special guests. The Peters’ have held 23 (!!!) Big Nights In since March 2020 by opening their living room virtually to the “Alarm family” to keep fans connected during the pandemic. Some of the previous special guests were Billy Duffy of the Cult, Steve Norman of Spandau Ballet, Miles Hunt of Wonder Stuff, The Damned’s Captain Sensible and Slim Jim Phantom from the Stray Cats.
The silent auction has rock and roll memorabilia donated by Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, Billy Idol, Duff McKagan of Guns & Roses, and other celebrated musicians. The online auction opens today and will close on February 5th.
All of the funds raised through this special event will support cancer prevention and cancer care projects for underprivileged communities through trusted hospitals and organizations. Plus every dollar given to Love Hope Strength for World Cancer Day will be matched dollar for dollar by the Beauchamp Family Foundation!
