Schwannomatosis

From the AJC's Social Butterfly today...

Braves slugger Jeff Francoeur and retired NFL player Matt Stinchcomb headiline the Nov. 28 Rock4Research concert. Chad and Ben Leathers perform as “Tumornators” at the benefit concert at Wild Bill’s in Lawrenceville. The event raises money to research Schwannomatosis, a rare disease that their younger brother, Drew, has been fighting since age 10. Francoeur, a former teammate of Chad’s at Parkview High School, donated $500 to the Children’s Tumor Foundation on behalf of the Tumornators for every home run he hit in his 2007 season. VIP tickets are available for $20 and will include a meet-and-greet with Frenchy and Stinchy. General admission for the concert is $10. Info: www.rock4research.com or www.tumornators.com.
Only $20 to meet-and-greet Frenchy! Let me know if any of you go, ok?

You know, for all the grief Frenchy gets for being Mr. Overhyped & all that he still seems to be a really good guy.

Totally agree with you flbravesgirl- from everything I have heard he does a lot for charity and his community and seems to really enjoy it- does it because he wants to, as opposed to having to...just one of many reasons why I like him so much:)

I am planning on going but have found it very hard to find whether it will be at Wild Bill's or Peachtree Tavern. Rock4research.com has it at Peachtree Tavern and AJC has it at Wild Bill's and both venues do not list the concert or meet and greet on the calender of events. Tumornators.com doesn't have any mention of the concert either. Just wanted everyone to be aware. I've emailed both venues so hopefully they will respond.
