EB Research Partnership (EBRP) has rallied a slew of stars to appear during the third annual Venture Into Cures, an online fundraiser scheduled for Nov. 20.
The event will feature appearances by (in alphabetical order) Jonathan Brown, Dana Carvey, Billie Eilish, Will Ferrell, Finneas, Jack Harlow, Tom Holland, Joe Jonas, Kermit the Frog, Macklemore, Lamorne Morris, Chris Pratt, Keanu Reeves, Olivia Rodrigo, Molly Shannon, Hannah Simone, David Spade, Emma Watson, Venus Williams and more, with performances by Broken Social Scene, John Legend, Joy Oladokun, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lauren Spencer-Smith and others.
The event raises money while shining a spotlight on individuals and families that are dealing with epidermolysis bullosa. Commonly called EB, it’s a rare genetic disorder (with no treatment or cure) that affects the skin, causing it to tear, blister and/or shear, which results in severe pain, disfigurement and wounds that sometimes never heal.
Rocker Eddie Vedder co-founded EBRP alongside wife Jill, who says that she’s seen firsthand the “devastating impact” EB has on kids and families and that’s what inspired the Vedders to devote time to finding a cure. She added, “This year, we’re continuing to rally our friends and family around the cause, with my daughters Olivia and Harper joining the show.”
Said Eddie Vedder: “Scientists around the world are racing to find a cure for thousands of diseases. Over the last ten years, EBRP in particular has made incredible strides in research and clinical trials. We are thrilled to report that we are truly within reach of a cure.”
Produced by EBRP and Door Knocker Media with artist booking by One Twenty Eight, EBRP has raised more than $4.6 million with online fundraisers over the past two years. It will stream here.
