Concert for a Cause

By Jillian Manning | May 28, 2022

This Friday, June 3, Mt. Holiday in Traverse City will be rocking. The popular ski hill and summer adventure zone is hosting The Steel Wheels—a Virginia-based Americana/roots/folk-rock band—in support of Less Cancer Bike Ride America. Less Cancer (also known as the Next Generation Choices Foundation) is a nonprofit focused on the prevention of cancer. Their Bike Ride America program offers “a month-long challenge that encourages riders across the country and around the world to ride in support of cancer prevention,” and what better place to gather than at Mt. Holiday, home of the Mud, Sweat & Beers bike race? (In fact, Mt. Holiday is the launch point for the national campaign!) Admission is free, though donations are encouraged. Doors open at 6pm with music starting at 7:30pm, giving you plenty of time to nosh on the tasty menu at Mt. Holiday’s T-Bar restaurant before hitting the dance floor. Visit lesscancer.org/concert for more details.
