Musician Rob Thomas is the very definition of a good neighbor. The Bedford resident, singer/songwriter, and Matchbox Twenty frontman is always willing to lend his talents to help a good—and, often local—cause. There’re his concerts with Blythedale Children’s Hospital, his work with the Sidewalk Angels Foundation, and now he’s performing on October 9 at the Performing Arts Center in Purchase to benefit the Open Door Family Medical Centers.
For those unfamiliar with Open Door Family Medical Centers, the organization seeks to high-quality, low-cost healthcare for under-served populations. According to its website, Open Door has more than 40,000 patients in Westchester County, and it’s currently operating health centers in Mount Kisco, Ossining, Port Chester, Sleepy Hollow, and Brewster. So, while it’s always a treat to see Rob Thomas when he plays a close-to-hometown show, this is an especially worthwhile ticket. Rumor has it that he’s working on some new music, too, so it’s possible that attendees will get a sneak preview at the concert.
Tickets range from $100 for a second-tier ticket to $1,000 for a “VIP Roadie” package, which includes a ticket to the show, access to a VIP cocktail reception, and a backstage pass to meet Rob Thomas after the performance. You can purchase tickets at opendoormedical.org/robthomas, or get more information by calling (914) 502-1414.
