The T.J. Martell Foundation, “Music’s Promise for a Cure,” has announced its 16th Annual New York Family Day on Sunday, December 13, 2015 at Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, New York. This year’s Family Day will honor Alissa Pollack, EVP, Music & Partner Integrations for iHeartMedia, Premiere Networks and Mediabase.
Family Day will feature live performances from popular artists AJR, Becky G, Daya, DNCE, Frankie, Hunter Hayes, Jack & Jack, MAX and singer-songwriter Rachel Platten, whose anthem “Fight Song” recently topped the Mediabase charts. iHeartMedia’s Elvis Duran from the nationally syndicated Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, heard on New York flagship Z100/WHTZ, will host the afternoon event with television actress and musician Laura Marano of Disney Channel’s Austin & Ally.
“I’m so honored to be recognized at the T.J. Martell Foundation’s New York Family Day,” said Alissa Pollack. “The work they do is critical to supporting families. I look forward to helping make this a super successful event, and raise much needed funds to continue their commitment to finding cures for those in need.”
Family Day, one of the music industry’s signature events, is a spectacular afternoon full of fun activities, food and live performances to raise money for cancer and AIDS research. Having steadily grown into one of the T.J. Martell Foundation’s most successful events, Family Day has raised over $5 million for Martell-funded research at top hospitals across the United States. Last year’s sold-out Family Day event featured Hilary Duff and Pitbull, along with Bea Miller, Bleachers and Us The Duo.
