The Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program at the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center works to improve the lives of patients and their loved ones by providing at-home help, childcare, transportation, access to support groups and patient care services offered within Cedars-Sinai Medical Center - the hospital where she was treated. Colon cancer affects both men and women and is the third most common form of cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the Western world. In addition, 50 cents from every concert ticket sold for the entire tour will go to the cause, which is very close to the Osbournes.
The Silent Auction will be set up on the Arena concourse outside section 128 and will begin when doors to the concert open at 6:30PM with bidding closing at 9:25PM. Winning bidders will be notified on Wednesday, January 9. For more information about the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program, visit cedars-sinai.edu/osbourneprogram.
