The George Fund Teen Formal

Cutting Edge Entertainment had the pleasure to be a part of many great events in the month of January.  I was happy to be apart of a very special event at the Great American Pub in Conshohocken.  The event was a Teen Formal which was hosted by The George Fund Charity.  Cutting Edge Entertainment was proud to be a sponsor for the event.

About 200 teens from the area showed up and enjoyed food and beverages, and of course lots of dancing.  Not only were they having a good time, but they also were raising money for children in need.  The teens got dressed up in their best formal wear and packed the dance floor the entire night.  DJ Foltzy and I had a great time playing music, and meeting everyone involved in this charity.

The George Fund – named in memory of George Hedges Pappert – was established by his parents Jerry and Ellen Pappert at Keystone Hospice in 2008. George died on January 12, 2008, just eight days before his fifth birthday and 18 months after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.

Pediatric hospice care is often three times more expensive than adult hospice care, and urgently needed services are sometimes out of reach for many families. The Fund is designed to help families of terminally ill children with their needs for quality hospice care, including clinical services, medication and equipment.

Every dollar contributed to The George Fund goes to help pay for comprehensive pediatric hospice care, which insurance plans do not adequately support. Contributions are used for durable medical equipment, prescription medications, creative arts therapies and the many other needs of terminally ill children.

We want to thank Connie and the rest of the organizers of the Teen Formal, for asking us to be a part of this event.  Also, I need to thank all of the amazing teens who came to the event.  We had so much fun at this dance, and I hope everybody had as good of a time as we did.
