Rockin’ for a Cure

Mikey Czech Foundation



John and Karen Thiel

Steve Czech of New Canaan has been a big fan of Styx, and more specifically of the inimitable voice of Dennis DeYoung, since he was a teenager. The cofounder of the Mikey Czech Foundation thought friends and steadfast supporters of his nonprofit might enjoy the music of this artist, too. So he asked DeYoung to perform live at the Woodway Country Club in Darien for the foundation’s fall gala coordinated by Moms for Mikey. The reception hall was transformed into an intimate concert venue complete with high-tech sound system and lights. DeYoung performed many of the band’s hits, including "Come Sail Away," "Babe" and "Lady." A silent and live auction followed the concert. Proceeds from the event will fund pediatric brain tumor research. Steve and his wife, Jennifer, founded this grassroots nonprofit after their son Mikey died from complications associated with a form of brain cancer in children. The Czechs are recipients of Moffly Media's Light a Fire Award for philanthropy and service.
