SMGF is proud to host Broadway’s finest stars in New Jersey for the third year in a row. Proceeds allow Summit Medical Group Foundation to further its mission by providing care, comfort and compassion to patients with cancer and their families. While having outstanding medical treatment is vital to any cancer patient, what’s often overlooked are the elements that lie outside of surgery, radiation or chemotherapy. The Summit Medical Group Foundation is committed to helping patients and their families maintain their emotional, physical and spiritual well-being throughout treatment, increasing quality of life and chances of survival.

“The Broadway community is an incredible intersection of talent and passion. When those qualities are focused into any project it is nothing short of brilliant and that’s exactly what Broadway Rocks Cancer will be,” explained Joey Taranto from Broadway’s very own Kinky Boots. “A night of electric performances by singers who understand the importance of taking care of our communities. We have all been affected by cancer in some way. I certainly have. The Comfort Project funded by the Summit Medical Group Foundation does beautiful work in bringing ease to families and friends during their time of need. I’m proud to support them. It’s going to be an amazing night!”

Doors open Monday, November 18, 2019 at 6:00 PM with performances starting at 7:00 PM. To purchase tickets for this inspiring evening of music, please visit
