National Fundraising Event Celebrates Excellence in Health Equity Leadership

PHOENIX – Equality Health Foundation is thrilled to announce the inaugural Rhythm of Well-Being Community Concert and Leadership Honors Celebration, dedicated to recognizing excellence in health equity leadership. This exciting evening will take place on October 17 from 7-9 p.m. at Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix with a Red-Carpet Reception from 6-7 p.m. The fundraising event champions the Equality Health Foundation’s mission to provide equitable healthcare and promote access to well-being for everyone. Tickets will be available for purchase on July 29.

The community concert will present an evening of exceptional music, showcasing national and local entertainers along with celebrity guests. Headlining the event will be Big Mountain, the renowned reggae band famous for their hit remake of Peter Frampton’s “Baby, I Love Your Way.” In 2021, they released their eighth album, “Freedom,” dedicated to uplifting spirits and fostering a sense of connection through a culture of freedom and love.

“We started out as an activist group – it’s what inspired us from the very beginning,” said Big Mountain. “Reggae music has a history of bringing a voice to voiceless people. Equality Health Foundation empowers people who feel marginalized and that is important work that we all must do together.”

The purpose of the Rhythm of Well-Being Community Concert and Leadership Honors Celebration is to educate, entertain, and inspire the community. This year, Equality Health Foundation is placing a special emphasis on raising awareness about the importance of mental health. To support this focus, local and national leaders are producing and publishing public service announcements that highlight pressing public health issues, with a particular spotlight on mental health.

“We are truly honored to host an event that embodies the spirit of community, collaboration, and well-being,” said Tomás León, president of Equality Health Foundation. “This event recognizes the incredible work of leaders in our community, and our collective efforts toward achieving health equity and a brighter future for all.”

The community is invited to join in recognizing and celebrating the Rhythm Awards honorees in Healthcare, Community, Education, and Business. These leaders and organizations are actively breaking down barriers and creating pathways to well-being, serving as an inspiration to all.
