“PEAC’s Got Talent” Raises over $30,000 Proceeds Benefit Mercer County Chapter of the Sunshine Foundation
April 29th, 2015
Ewing, New Jersey (April 29, 2015) “PEAC’s Got Talent,” PEAC Health & Fitness’s Annual fundraiser to benefit the Mercer County Chapter of the Sunshine Foundation, raised over $30,000. The event was held at PEAC on April 11, 2015, and was an evening filled with entertainment by local performers in support of a special cause. All proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the Mercer County Chapter of the Sunshine Foundation’s Operation Dreamlift.
Ewing based band The TEMPOraries was the headlining act for the evening. World renowned female impersonator Steven Andrade’s performance as Cher energized the crowd of over 200 people. The evening also included talented performances by Diane Beebe, Christie Brayton, Ewing High School Master Singers, Craig Lieboff, Marsha Newman, Notre Dame High School Madrigal Choir, PEAC’s Tai Chi Group and Devon Scarlett. Sunshine Foundation volunteer Susan Fanning was the Mistress of Ceremonies and local music producer Alex Otey provided the technical support for the show.
Guests of honor included four families who directly benefit from the Sunshine Foundation’s wish granting mission. Also in attendance were Cierra Kaler-Jones, Miss New Jersey 2014; James McKinstry, former NY Jets; Rodney Pete Watson, former Cincinnati Bengals; and Ewing Mayor Bert Steinmann with Council President Jennifer Keyes-Maloney.
Cathy DiCostanzo, President of the Mercer County Chapter of the Sunshine Foundation, in her address to the crowd, recognized the hard work and dedication of the organization’s all-volunteer chapter. “I can’t do this alone,” she stated. “There is a very special group of people who make it all happen.”
All proceeds from PEAC’s Got Talent benefit the Sunshine Foundation’s Dreamlift, which transports a group of special needs children from the National Guard Facility in Trenton, NJ to Orlando, FL for one day of fun at Walt Disney World. This year’s Dreamlift takes flight on May 5, 2015. Since 2008, with the support of the community, PEAC has raised more than $200,000 to benefit the Dreamlift.
