Sunday, May 5th marks the 3rd annual Rock on Judi H. fundraiser benefitting the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute.
The event is held in memory of Judi Perry Hartridge of Dunmore, PA, who passed away from breast cancer in 2007, and will be held at the Scranton Cultural Center from 5pm to 10 pm.
The event, which Christine Zavaskas, Community Relations Coordinator at the NE Regional Cancer Institute referred to as a “dance party” in an interview with radio host Frankie Warren from Magic 93, will feature refreshments, a cash bar, and a raffle for one of three great prizes: a ‘Pink Lady 3’ guitar, Apple iPad, and one-year membership to Planet Fitness.
Admission into the event costs $20 which includes entry into the raffle, in which Judi’s son will be drawing the winners. All proceeds will support the NE Regional Cancer Institute with the Weinberg Foundation (one of the United States’ largest private foundations financially assisting individuals and families) matching a portion of the funds.
But we did say that this was a dance party after all. Judi’s uncle, Paul LaBelle, will be performing with his group (Paul LaBelle and the Exact Change Band), along with NEPA’s band Old Friends.
When asked by Frankie if they were “going to have a big giant pink truck there again,” Paul responded, “Without question. My good friend Jim Barrett from Road Scholar, who, he kind of started this whole thing with me in 2009, and his big beautiful pink truck is on the road and it goes coast to coast and keeps our message of cancer awareness alive and keeps our message with Judi H 3 Rock On coast to coast, so we’re thanking Jimmy once again and the truck will be parked out front. And this year you can come down and sign the truck and do a best wish to Judi which is really cool.”
The Rock on Judi H. pink awareness truck is part of Road Scholar Transport’s campaign to bring hope and spread awareness to people less fortunate, joining two dozen different awareness units. View Road Scholar’s awareness trucks at www.roadscholarawareness.org.
