Advocate Condell Medical Center submission

Advocate Condell Medical Center is hosting "Advocate Condell Rocks the Cure" Saturday, April 20, at Austin's Fuel Room in Libertyville.

The concert will benefit its Cancer Care program and will feature two bands that include executives from Advocate Health Care and Advocate Condell Medical Center.

The concert was the brainchild of Scott Powder, senior vice president of strategic growth and planning at Advocate Health Care, and Matt Primack, vice president of clinical institutes and business development at Advocate Condell. Both executives play guitar in rock bands.

"We just thought it would be great to have our bands play, represent Advocate Health and try to support a good cause," said Primack, a Chicago resident whose band, McLovin, has played charity and fundraising events in Chicago for more than five years.

"This event is really about the spirit of giving and support of Advocate. I think Scott would agree that both of our bands are honored to be included in such an event,"

Powder, a Vernon Hills resident whose band Mid Life Crisis will also play the event, added, "Me and my band members all live in the community served by Advocate Condell, so anything we can do to benefit its Cancer Care program is a good thing. It should be a great night of music from two high energy bands."

Proceeds from the event will benefit Advocate Condell's Cancer Care program, which provides a full spectrum of services to the communities of Lake County. To purchase tickets, visit or call (847) 990-5843.

Doors open at 6 p.m. for the concert, which runs 7 to 10 p.m. Austin's Saloon Fuel Room is at 841 Peterson Road. The cost is $20 per person in advance and $25 at the door. You must be 21 and older to attend.
