Dickinson Wright PLLC has announced that its End of the Row party hosted last week in Nashville raised $5,000 to support the T.J. Martell Foundation, the music industry’s largest foundation that funds medical research on finding cures for leukemia, cancer and AIDS.

The event was held Thursday, Oct. 1 at the Ruby on Blakemore Avenue, where some of the music industry’s most noteworthy and talented singer/songwriters treated guests to exclusive live performances in two rounds. The evening’s guest artists included:

• Trea Landon
• Dan Pellarin
• Natalie Estes
• Julienne Irwin
• James Slater
• Travis Meadows
• Maggie Rose
• Gordi Sampson
• Angaleena Presley

“These artists are truly phenomenal. Exposing their craft to my friends and colleagues has become a personal passion–and at End of the Row, we get to do it while supporting an organization that’s lived close to my heart for nearly two decades.“ said Derek Crownover, the practice group leader for Dickinson Wright’s Entertainment Law Practice Group. “It’s an honor to see folks from the music industry, my firm and the business community give back to a cause that provides hope and help to so many children.”

The Foundation sources and supports early-stage research projects aimed at developing more effective clinical treatments for patients which otherwise might not be funded. Locally, the Southeast regional office of the T.J. Martell Foundation has donated over $16 million in research to the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center. These research funds have been used to help Vanderbilt leverage and capture additional research funds in the neighborhood of $55 million.
