IndyCar Series driver Sarah Fisher and singer/songwriter Danny Woods of New Kids On the Block will co-host a party at the Miami Beach nightclub, LIV, to raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure on Oct. 8.
Fans are invited to attend join celebrities, including some of the IndyCar Series drivers that will compete alongside Fisher in the Oct. 10 Firestone Indy 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway at the event, which will feature premier entertainment by Ross One. All proceeds from ticket sales to the even at LIV – located in the newly renovated Fontainebleau Resort on Miami Beach – will benefit Komen for the Cure to fund breast cancer research and community outreach programs.
"We're so excited to be partnering with Komen to help fight the war on breast cancer," said Fisher. "This is a disease that touches everyone, and we can't do enough to help. The party is a fun way to bring attention to our efforts, while raising money for Komen's programs. Hosting it with Danny Woods is going to be so much fun."
The event is part of Fisher's "On the Track for a Cause" a multi-faceted initiative to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research. Fisher will turn all of her branding pink for the race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Fisher will race in a pink car, wearing a pink firesuit and matching pink helmet designed by her fans. Fisher's primary sponsor Dollar General will present a donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure at LIV on the pink carpet.
A big supporter of Komen, Woods has been involved in multiple fundraising events with the world's largest breast cancer organization. In between touring with his band, running his record label, Damage Records, and producing and writing songs, the singer and choreographer has been doing all he can to help the cause.
"Hopefully this will create awareness and motivate people to join in the fight against this dreadful disease," said Danny Wood, whose work with Komen for the Cure honors his mother who died from breast cancer 10 years ago. "Women need to be aware of early detection.That was the problem for my mother. By the time she found out, it was too late – and I don't want that to happen to anyone else when it could be prevented."
