The concert, which donates proceeds to NF Network, a non-profit organization that serves families and individuals with neurofibromatosis, will feature performances by Delious Kennedy from the Grammy Award-winning band All-4-One, Jeff Timmons from 98 Degrees, Anya Garnis and Dmitry Chaplin from ABC's Dancing With The Stars, Gordie Brown, Clint Holmes, Chris Phillips, and cast members from Jersey Boys, Absinthe, Vegas! The Show, and more. There will also be both live and silent auctions.
The Annual NF Hope Concert is inspired by Leibow's daughter Emma, who has been diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder of the nervous system that results in a mutation on a gene that normally suppresses tumor growth allowing tumors to grow on any nerve in the body without warning. More than 100,000 people are currently living with the disorder.
