Vinegrass Concert to Benefit Cape Cod Healthcare

(HYANNIS, MA – April 7, 2020) – Vinegrass Organization founder Monica Rizzio will perform a one-hour, live-streamed concert to benefit Cape Cod Healthcare and its employees during the COVID-19 crisis. The event will be held online on Saturday, April 11, at 7:00 p.m. on Facebook Live.

“Monica Rizzio: A Concert for Cape Cod Healthcare” will feature Rizzio and husband Peter Fasano performing “American roots” genre of music. All proceeds from the concert will benefit the Cape Cod Healthcare Foundation General Fund, which is a fund used to address pressing medical needs like supplies, equipment, facility expansion or employee needs.

Rizzio, who most recently performed a charity concert to benefit musical performers whose income has been affected by COVID-19, said her desire to help the healthcare community is personal. “My mother-in-law served as a VNA nurse for 50 years, so I want support to the healthcare workers here on Cape Cod who do an excellent job of taking time to take care of us. I hope they are finally getting the praise for all of their hard work,” Rizzio said.

“Cape Cod Healthcare is grateful to Vinegrass and Monica Rizzio for this unique and generous show of support. Bringing Cape Codders together through music has been part of their ongoing mission and we are grateful that this effort will be used to support Cape Cod Healthcare at this critical time,” said Chris Lawson, senior vice president and chief development officer at Cape Cod Healthcare, which is a long-time supporter of the Vinegrass Organization.
