Singer Sheryl Crow Rocks the USS Midway to Benefit Children With Physical Deformities
The Plastic Surgery Foundation, Fresh Start Surgical Gifts Host Charitable Concert, Oct. 11, San Diego
SAN DIEGO -- The Plastic Surgery Foundation (The PSF) has teamed up with San Diego-based Fresh Start Surgical Gifts to host Sheryl Crow Rocks the USS Midway, a private charitable concert to help transform the lives of children suffering from physical deformities, through the gift of reconstructive surgery, on Friday, Oct. 11 at 8:30 p.m., at the USS Midway Museum in San Diego. The fundraiser will take place during Plastic Surgery The Meeting, the annual scientific meeting of The PSF and American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
"Every day many children courageously face the world with physical imperfections and deformities. Some are born with birth defects, while others have suffered from disease or injury," said ASPS President Gregory Evans, MD. "Reconstructive surgery can help correct many of these issues, but many children do not have access to surgery. We are working to help children around the United States afflicted by conditions such as cleft lip and palate, port-wine stains, and Treacher-Collins Syndrome get the care they need."
Event proceeds will go to Fresh Start Surgical Gifts and The PSF to provide financial support to children for reconstructive surgery; fund research into deformities caused by birth defects, accidents, abuse or disease; and raise awareness of surgical gifts for children. Lifestyle healthcare growth equity firm, Strathspey Crown, is a platinum supporter of the Sheryl Crow Rocks the USS Midway benefit concert.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) is the largest organization of board-certified plastic surgeons in the world. Representing more than 11,000 physician members worldwide, the society is recognized as a leading authority and information source on cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. ASPS comprises more than 92 percent of all board-certified plastic surgeons in the United States. Founded in 1931, the society represents physicians certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery or The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
