Purdue Cancer Benefit Concert:

The Cancer Benefit Concert, also sponsored by Purdue Musical Organizations, began 9 years ago when a Purduette (the all female singing group at Purdue) had a member diagnosed with ovarian cancer while one of her sisters in song was experiencing life with parents battling cancer. The two young women wanted to do something to raise awareness of cancer to all ages, support cancer research happening here at Purdue, and give the gift of music to the audience. Thus, the Cancer Benefit Concert was created.
