Grammy award-winning rock band, Train, took center stage in 2014 at Planting Fields Arboretum State Historic Park in Oyster Bay, NY, during a private benefit for the The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research that raised a record-setting $1.6 million. The San Franciscan pop rock band was the headliner at the Feinstein Institute’s ninth annual summer concert, held Wednesday, July 16. The event also featured Endometriosis Foundation of America’s (EFA) co-founders Tamer Seckin, MD, and Top Chef host, Padma Lakshmi.
Speaking on behalf of the band Train, lead singer Pat Monahan shared the band members’ feelings about performing at the Feinstein Institute summer concert. “We recognize how profoundly lucky we are to have our health and the health of our families. When we were asked to play, we immediately said ‘yes’ because we understand the importance of the Feinstein Institute research as it relates to curing diseases. We are incredibly proud to have been a part of this wonderful event and inspired by the work being done.”
