12th Annual MammoJam Music Festival returns


— The 12th Annual MammoJam Music Festival will be held on Saturday, March 21, 2015 at Baltimore’s famed 8×10 located at 10 East Cross Street in Baltimore at 6:30 p.m.

Proceeds from the event will support local breast cancer screening and treatment programs for low-income women.

This year’s show has a distinct local flavor as Baltimore blues legend Ursula Ricks returns as the headliner for the second consecutive year. The lineup also includes the passion, funk and humor of Brooks Long and the Mad Dog No Good and South Baltimore favorites Roses n Rust.

“Once again Baltimore’s local artists show how they can really make an impact on our community,” said festival founder Bill Romani. “Each year our friends in the music industry and our dedicated volunteers reach to new levels in support the women and families touched by breast cancer.”

MammoJam is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to promoting breast cancer screening and treatment programs for underinsured and low-income women. Since October 2003, all of MammoJam’s proceeds have provided annual support to local organizations like the Hoffberger Breast Center at Mercy Medical Center and Harbor Hospital’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Center in their fight against breast cancer. MammoJam provides annual funding to support a community outreach- translator at Harbor Hospital that has brought breast cancer screening and treatment to over 400 Hispanic women since 2010.
