Chicago's Inaugural NF Hope Concert

  • Metropolis Performing Arts Centre, 111 W Campbell St, Arlington Heights
The Windy City welcomes the “NF Hope Concert” for the first time on April after seven successful years on the Las Vegas Strip and one year in the books on the Great White Way in New York. Benefit organizer, Jeff Leibow, formerly of “Jersey Boys” in Las Vegas, has once again united the entertainment community bringing together talent from across Chicago to raise money and awareness for the Neurofibromatosis Network, a Chicago-based nonprofit dedicated to families and individuals suffering from Neurofibromatosis (NF). Chicago’s Inaugural NF Hope Concert is set for Sunday, April 15 at 6:30 p.m. at the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre in Arlington Heights. Tickets start at $44 and can be purchased online at https://nfhopechicago.auction-bid.org . VIP tickets are sold out. Since the inaugural event in 2011, the “NF Hope Concert” has grown by leaps and bounds, raising more than $600,000 for Neurofibromatosis research and advocacy. This time it’s branching out to Chicago with a rock solid line up of performers including: Jessy Schram of “Nashville” and “Mad Men”, “Jersey Boys” stars Christopher Kale Jones and John Michael Coppola, Dan Tatar, NF Artist Avery Rausch , Jeff Leibow himself and many more. A full list of confirmed guests will be announced closer to the event. Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a genetic disorder of the nervous system characterized by tumors that can grow on any nerve in the body without warning. Leibow’s young daughter, Emma, was diagnosed with this condition in 2010 when she was just nine months old. As Leibow and his wife, Melody, learned more about the disorder’s devastating effects, they conceived the idea for the concert with the realization that they had an obligation to both their family and the 128,000 people living with NF to educate others about the disorder. Although it is a common genetic disorder, most people are not aware that one in 2,500 people are born with it making it more common than cystic fibrosis, hereditary muscular dystrophy, Huntington’s disease, and Tay Sachs combined.
