Free outdoor concert on August 13 at UC Davis Health System fosters community spirit, teamwork
UC Davis Health System and their Community Advisory Board will host the Sacramento Metropolitan Youth Choir and the dance band, The Cheeseballs, at its third annual free outdoor concert on Thursday, Aug. 13, from 6 to 9 p.m. Held on the lawn behind the Education Building at 45th and X Streets on the UC Davis Sacramento campus, the concert is free and open to the public. Bring a blanket, lawn chair and picnic basket, or purchase refreshments and food available on site.
“This event is one way that we give back to our community and thank our students, faculty and staff for all of the hard work they do throughout the year,” said Claire Pomeroy, vice chancellor for Human Health Sciences at UC Davis and dean of the School of Medicine. “It’s an opportunity for health system staff and their families to pack a picnic and enjoy a summer evening with our neighbors and partners in the community."
Organized by UC Davis Health System’s Community Advisory Board, this year’s event features The Cheeseballs, an eight-member party band that plays dance and pop classics, R&B, funk and hip hop hits from the 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000s. In addition, this family-oriented event will have a kids zone, complete with carnival games, a bounce house and other fun activities for children.
