A Record-Breaking $2 Million Raised at Holiday Rock & Roll Bash
in Support of The Lustgarten Foundation’s Fight to
Beat Pancreatic Cancer

BETHPAGE, NY, December 4, 2014 – On Wednesday evening, December 3, Cablevision Systems Corporation, The Madison Square Garden Company, and AMC Networks hosted the fourteenth annual Holiday Rock & Roll Bash to benefit The Lustgarten Foundation, the nation’s largest nonprofit funder of pancreatic cancer research. Held at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City, the event raised $2,060,000, breaking its previous all-time fundraising record. Due to the support of Cablevision, 100 percent of every dollar raised goes directly to pancreatic cancer research.

The Holiday Rock & Roll Bash is The Lustgarten Foundation’s premier annual event, raising nearly $19 million in the fight against pancreatic cancer since it was created in 2001. More than 1,100 guests attended this year’s Bash. The evening’s entertainment included live rock-and-roll music, along with special appearances by the world-famous Radio City Rockettes and a very jolly Santa Claus.
