The announcement of moe.'s NYE run comes as the band, along with several other musical acts and venues, lends strong support to The American Cancer Society (ACS) through its inaugural “Rock The Pink” campaign. This initiative aims to harness the influence of the music community to combat breast cancer. To date, the band has already raised more than $4,500, and efforts are ongoing. Having collaborated with the ACS's breast cancer initiatives for the past two years, this year moe. has combined efforts with Umphrey’s McGee, Goose, the Disco Biscuits, Andy Frasco & the U.N., Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Kitchen Dwellers, and Doom Flamingo, as well as venues like The Capitol Theatre & Garcia’s. Each participant is contributing in their own unique way, from selling limited-edition merchandise to flaunting pink instruments on stage and wearing pink-themed outfits, all to generate funds and awareness. 100% of the proceeds go directly to ACS, the nation's premier nonprofit for cancer research funding.
