Expedition Inspiration concert tickets go on sale

Express Staff Writer

The Expedition Inspiration Fund for Breast Cancer Research, based in Ketchum, announced that Robert Cray and his band will play for its fourth annual summer concert.

The outdoor concert Wednesday, June 23, at 6:30 p.m. will be held at River Run Lodge. A special opening guest band will be announced soon.

This concert is one of the larger events held to benefit Expedition Inspiration’s 9th Annual Laura Evans Breast Cancer Medical Symposium, to be held in Sun Valley in February 2005. It also contributes to medical research grants.

Expedition Inspiration’s "Summer Soul-Stice" Concert" will feature Cray, a well-regarded blues and southern soul stylist known for his tight musical arrangements and concerts.

"This five-time Grammy Award winner and his band are sure to entertain his audience with smooth sound and great instrumentals," Katie Powell, director of EI, said. Sponsor tickets are $150 apiece and include a pre-concert reception and preferred seating. General Admission tickets are $40 apiece. The grounds open at 5:30 p.m. for a reception and at 6 p.m. for general seating. The music starts at 6:30 p.m. Picnics are welcome. As always, there will be on site bar service.

Tickets go on sale May 10 through Expedition Inspiration 726-6456 or e-mail ei@expeditioninspiration.org for ticket outlet information. Order tickets online at www.expeditioninspiration.org.

Expedition Inspiration Fund for Breast Cancer Research raises awareness of the disease and money to benefit innovative breast cancer research, public education and patient support. Through organized and sponsored outdoor endeavors, Expedition Inspiration promotes the health and well being of breast cancer survivors.
