50 Concerts In 50 States For Epilepsy Awareness


Partnering with the largest non-profits in the world of epilepsy, Candlelight Concerts for Epilepsy Awareness is proud to announce the first nation-wide epilepsy awareness endeavor – 50 Concerts in 50 States. It’s a network of coordinated live events over one weekend in March 2013.

Candlelight Concerts, along with Epilepsy Foundation (www.EFA.org), CURE: Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (www.CureEpilepsy.org), Team Epilepsy (www.TeamEpilepsy.com) and Doose Syndrome Epilepsy Alliance (www.DooseSyndrome.org), are standing united to raise epilepsy awareness on this single weekend in March.

At each event, volunteers will be present to distribute information regarding epilepsy (a 16 page book prepared specifically for these events), provide access to services, answer questions and raise donations – all of which will go directly to the charity of the donor’s choice.

Events will vary in size from intimate house concerts with 20-40 attendees to 18,000+ seat arena shows with nationally known touring artists. Artists from all genres – classic rock, folk, jazz, singer/songwriters, orchestras, electronic, comedians, plays and more. All with the same objective, to distribute information and raise epilepsy awareness. All genres, all volunteers involved with the singular purpose to change the way the world sees and understands epilepsy.

This national network of events grows out of Candlelight Concerts for Epilepsy Awareness – a webcast house concert series based in Pennington NJ. Started and run by Eric Miller, whose wife Carolina, passed away in August 2011 at the age of 25 as a result of epilepsy. Since that time, Eric has worked tirelessly to raise epilepsy awareness in her honor and in honor of all those living with or lost to epilepsy. The series has featured such amazing artists as Corey Glover of Living Colour, Eric Bazilian, Chris Barron, The Young Dubliners, Dan Reed, Mary Fahl, and many others. This network of events takes that model and raises it to a national level on a single weekend.

More states and date will be added, visit www.CandlelightConcert.org/50.asp for updates.
