INGLEWOOD, CA. (Top40 Charts/ La Gota de la Vida Campaign) - WHAT: The 7th annual "La Gota de la Vida Campaign," a year-long effort to encourage Latinos to register in the National Marrow Donor Program and help raise funds for City of Hope, will culminate with a festival and concert featuring internationally known recording artist Cristian Castro, Graciela Beltran, Tatiana, El Mayo de la Sierra and Morrison. Admission to the benefit concert is free and tickets will be distributed through Food 4 Less, Albertson's, Ralph's and Superior Warehouse stores. The event also includes a bone marrow drive to increase the number of Latino registrations to the National Marrow Donor Program. The campaign is co-sponsored by Universal Music and Ritmo Latino

Music Stores and includes public service announcements, bone marrow drives and community events.

To date, the campaign has raised over $1.2 million for City of Hope, a leading research and treatment center for cancer and other life-threatening diseases, and registered thousands of Latino bone marrow donors. The festival will include the Angels of Hope Awards to honor Latino professionals who have made significant contributions in their respective careers and inspirational individuals who have overcome cancer. This year, the Awards ceremony will also bring together cancer survivor Gustavo Perez and his bone marrow donor Jesus Soto where they will meet for the first time.
