2010 Benefit: Hannah Banana Rocked Again!
Hannah Banana Foundation hosted our second annual benefit on April 22, 2010 at the Canal Room in New York City. It was a huge success! Unforgettable Fire (a U2 tribute band), Rubix Kube (the ultimate 80s cover band), and Katrina and the Waves performed for our 300+ guests. Our live auction featured items donated by Equinox Fitness, Cartier, Nickelodeon, New World Stages, and The New York Giants, just to name a few. We achieved our fundraising goal, danced the night away, and had an absolute blast. Thank you to everyone who joined in the fun!

2008 Benefit: Hannah Banana Rocks!
Hannah Banana Foundation had its first Benefit on October 23, 2008 at New World Stages in New York City. 480 guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner donated by the Carnegie Deli, and a private viewing of ROCK OF AGES. This Off-Broadway extravaganza exploring the pursuit of dreams in Hollywood circa 1987, features music from your favorite "big hair" bands including Journey, Bon Jovi, Styx, Poison, and Twisted Sister and stars American Idol finalist and heartthrob, Constantine Maroulis. Hannah "Banana" Prisand was at this celebration to enjoy the music, see her friends, and party for the cause that bears her name! She passed away one week later.
