Are you ready for a night of live music and charity fundraising? Someone Like Evie is coming to the Whitby Pavilion to celebrate local Evie Hodgson and her courageous fight against Aplastic Anaemia.
Produced by Whitby-based Chameleon Music Marketing, they hope that this once-in-a-lifetime event and live auction will raise much-needed funds for Evie’s choice of charities, Anthony Nolan and Aplastic Anaemia Trust, to make sure that someone like nine-year-old Evie will be supported when they need it the most.
Evie was diagnosed in May 2020, and since then she has, along with her family and friends, selflessly dedicated her time to raising funds for the charities that helped to find her a bone marrow transplant, ensuring that their vital work can continue. So far Evie has recruited more than 25,000 new life-saving stem cell donors and four of those donors have gone on to be a match for people in need.
Evie: “I’m so excited that I get to sing in the concert as it will give me something to focus on as I have been stuck inside for so long recovering from my bone marrow transplant.”
So are you ready for a night of live music and charity fundraising for this amazing cause? The event will be hosted by the Whitby Pavilion on 20th November. The evening will be led by Katie Markham as Adele from Someone Like You, with a talented six-piece band.
Someone like Evie will also feature Daniel East, lead singer of touring theatre show Shape of You: The Music Of Ed Sheeran bringing to the stage the music of two of this country’s leading singer-songwriters – with a special guest appearance from Evie herself.
The funds raised by the Someone like Evie event will enable the charities to carry out vital research and recruit potential stem cell donors to the Anthony Nolan register any one of whom could give a second chance of life to someone in need of a stem cell transplant. As small charities they really appreciate the donation, it will really help them to continue to support people with aplastic anaemia and their families, as well as fund vital research.
