It all started with a concert
When a group of gifted musicians from Augusta, Georgia got together in December of 2001 to perform a Christmas concert and in 2003 released the first 12 Bands of Christmas CD, they could not have imagined where they would be a decade later.
The music of 12 Bands has provided “just in time” resources to families being cared for at the Children’s Hospital of Georgia. In fact, their efforts have raised over a quarter of a million dollars to support families fighting pediatric cancer. As 12 Bands evolved, the organization became wholly focused on the often unknown, seldom discussed and frequently ignored needs of children and families facing life-threatening cancers.
