The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of American (CCFA) provides education about and support to living with those chronic diseases and funding for research to find a cure. The CCFA Camp Oasis is a co-ed residential camp whose mission is to enrich the lives of kids living with those conditions. Advocacy for Patients is an organization that provides free information, advice, and advocacy services to any patient living with chronic disease in the US in areas of need like health and disability insurance, Social Security disability, employment discrimination, school-based accommodations, resource location.

All three groups do great work for the people they serve and are getting a boost tonight from the eighth annual Flight to Mars benefit concert at the Showbox at the Market.

Headliners Flight to Mars are a tribute to the great 70s and 80s rock band UFO formed by Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready who knows first hand what it’s like to live with Crohn’s and features friends and local musicians Tim DiJulio (guitar), Gary Westlake (bass), Kelly Van Camp (drums) and Paul Passereli (vocals). Opening the show are Seattle band Sweet Water.

Doors are at 8 pm, tickets are $20 each with all proceeds going to the CCFA, Camp Oasis and Advocacy for Patients.
