A Benefit for Neurofibromatosis
For ten years, the NF Hope® Concerts have entertained audiences in Las Vegas, Chicago and New York City with the best that the Great White Way, the Las Vegas Strip and beyond have to offer, all while raising awareness and over $1,000,000 for Neurofibromatosis (NF).
After two years of virtual events necessitated by COVID-19, concert producers Jeff & Melody Leibow are over the moon to finally bring the NF Hope Concert back live and in person to the entertainment capital of the world.
The event is inspired by the Leibows’ daughter, Emma, who was diagnosed with NF in 2010 at the age of nine months. NF is a genetic disorder of the nervous system characterized by tumors that can grow on any nerve in the body without warning. The Leibows conceived the idea for the concert upon the realization that they had an obligation to their daughter and the 128,000 people living with NF in the US to educate others about the disorder.
Over the years, the NF Hope Concert stage has welcomed superstars like Grammy Award winners All-4-One, Jazz legend Dave Koz, Tony and Olivier Award winner and Disney Legend Lea Salonga, Tony Award winner and Grammy, Emmy, Olivier and Drama Desk nominee Betty Buckley, two-time Grammy Award nominee Clint Holmes, American Idol winner Taylor Hicks, America’s Got Talent finalist Daniel Emmet and many more.
Backed by an incredible band led by musical director Robby Wingfield and held at the beautiful and intimate Myron’s at The Smith Center, this promises to be an unforgettable afternoon of entertainment for a very important and personal cause.
