In 2019, the American Cancer Society estimates there will be 1,762,450 new diagnoses of cancer in the United States. Beyond the physical and emotional toll cancer takes, it can cause financial hardship, especially when a patient is forced to take time off to recover.

Five years ago, we did something to help change that – and have some fun along the way. We invited our favorite bands to perform on our lawn. We paid for the whole thing and didn’t charge anything except for parking.

Each year since then, we’ve brought together the best of what Vermont has to offer with national touring acts like Guster and Phillip Phillips for a day of good music, good vibes, and good causes. We’ve hosted thousands of attendees on our lawn, and have raised nearly $135,000 for Branches of Hope, a fund that provides financial support to cancer patients with extraordinary expenses, from groceries to gas money.
