Tom Poleman To Be Honored By Musicians On Call
Tom Poleman, President of National Programming Platforms for Clear Channel Media and Entertainment , will be honored at the upcoming Musicians On Call Gala to be held on November 12, 2013 at Gotham Hall in NYC. MOC is a nonprofit organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients.
Launched in 1999, this will mark the first time MOC will honor someone for outstanding commitment to the organization. Through the years, Poleman has been an avid champion of MOC, serving as Board Co-Chairperson for over a decade and lending his time and support to help lighten the experience for patients being treated at hospitals across the country.
"Tom Poleman has been a driving force behind Musicians On Call for over a decade," says Dr. Leslie Faerstein, Executive Director of MOC. "He has not only served as Co-Chairperson of the Board of Directors where he had helped to steer the course of MOC, but he has been a volunteer musician at the bedsides of patients many times – most recently early this week in Los Angeles at the Mattel Children’s Hospital at UCLA. Thanks to Tom and Clear Channel's support, Musicians On Call has been able to raise funds to grow our Bedside Performance Programs to 42 times a week in 6 cities. It is most fitting that our first event honoring someone for outstanding commitment to the organization goes to Tom Poleman. He sets the bar high."
