Go Beyond.

Eibar Coa was one of the world’s most successful jockeys until a fall left him paralyzed. Rushed to Memorial Regional Hospital Trauma Center, Eibar underwent multiple surgeries, but doctors warned he might never walk again.

Step by step, therapists at Memorial Rehabilitation Institute guided him through intensive and personalized treatments to help him regain control of his body. Against the odds, Eibar walked out of the hospital in just six weeks. During outpatient rehabilitation, Eibar credits his remarkable recovery to an extraordinary team devoted to helping him Go Beyond what he thought he could do. “As an athlete, I can tell when everyone is on the same team. From the neurosurgeons to the physical therapists to the housekeeping staff – everyone at Memorial changed my life.” If we can help Eibar live life to his

Frankie is a pug with the most amazing personality he is my everything. I got him when he was just a few weeks old and since then I have never left his side. It’s been just me and him for the past 10 years. He is my support and savior. so many times I have felt like giving up but he was my reason to keep getting up and living. Since I’m all he has and he is all I have, I couldn’t let him down. My little guy is diabetic and blind, that is why he wears cool sunglasses to cover his cloudy eyes.

Kimley-Horn and Associates was recently awarded a $97,890 contract by the City of Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) to complete a Master Conceptual Plan for the Dixie Highway/21st Avenue Corridor. It is also known as the FEC Corridor. An important goal of the project is the adoption of the Complete Streets Guidelines; a movement out of Smart Growth America. This means that a street is developed to be shared by bicycle riders, pedestrians, wheel chair users, cars and buses. There are also plans for a passenger railway station. “You will see all types of transit users on the Dixie Highway/21st Avenue Corridor,” said architect Susan Goldberg, Coastal Project Manager for Hollywood. “Broward County has already adopted the Complete Streets Guidelines and Hollywood is in the process of adopting it.” City of Hollywood of staff is preparing an ordinance for consideration by the Hollywood City Commission to adopt Complete Street Guidelines. When

Leadership Hollywood seeks applicants

Leadership Hollywood is an interactive program where participants experience the Hollywood community up close, work together and gain a unique knowledge of resources and services available in Hollywood, Broward County and the State of Florida. The nine-month program will kickoff on Friday, October 11, 2013 with graduation in June 2014. More than 750 individuals have graduated from the program including including Mayor Peter Bober, Vice Mayor Richard Blattner, Commissioner Patty Asseff, Commissioner Peter Hernandez, Commissioner Kevin Biederman and his wife Donna, Senator Eleanor Sobel and many others pillars of our community. Visit www.hollywoodchamber.org or call the Greater Hollywood Chamber of Commerce at (954) 923-4000 to apply.

the project is complete, the downtown area be a place of energy and excitement. There will be trolleys, people riding around on bicycles, people walking and some individuals using cars. There will be bicycle lanes and wider sidewalks. There will be landscape buffer zones. “This promotes a healthier lifestyle and reduces pollution,” said Goldberg. “This will bring further interest in economic revitalization to downtown Hollywood. It will be a desirable place to live, work and study. Barry University is here. This area of Hollywood will be live, work, study and play.” The transit station will also attract people to the area. A second railroad track is being built by All Aboard Florida, a subsidiary of the FEC to encourage the development of passenger train service. All Aboard Florida will link Miami to Orlando with high speed passenger rail and will have a stop in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. The Tri-Rail Coastal Link will share the new passenger track along the FEC and will serve 28 cities from Miami to Jupiter. It will stop in Hollywood. This will make it easier for someone to live in Hollywood and work in Palm Beach County.

Hollywood has big plans for the Dixie Highway/21st Avenue Corridor. Once the Plan has been completed, the City will utilize the Plan to obtain funding from the Broward County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). Kimley-Horn also received a $95,000 contract to complete a Master Conceptual Plan on U.S. One/Federal Highway from Young Circle to Sheridan Street. This project will look for ways to make this corridor a more desirable place to locate office buildings and other commercial redevelopment. The goal will be to create a complete street and to make the area safer for pedestrians, bicycle riders and to be more attractive. Plans call for plants to be installed in the medians and the medians will be lengthened. “We are doing this at the right time,” said Goldberg. “We will apply for beatification grants from the Florida Department of Transportation and federal grants. They want to see what we want to do and they want to see an economic analysis.” Both studies are being funded proportionally by the City of Hollywood and the Hollywood CRA.

COVER STORY

The bald and the beautiful: Annual head-shaving event raises money for children’s cancer research PHOTO BY COURTNEY ORTIZ WWW.COURTNEYORTIZ.COM

St. Baldrick’s Foundation event set for Sept. 21 at Mickey Byrne’s By Caron Conway Lauren Bendesky was a typical 14-year-old until one fateful day in May 2012 when a large mass in her stomach was discovered that would be diagnosed as Stage IV high-risk neuroblastoma, a cancer of the nerve tissues. After more than a year of grueling chemotherapy and radiation treatments, today Lauren is a cancer survivor whose tests and scans show No Evidence of Disease (NED). Lauren, now 16, is only one of 175,000 children worldwide who are diagnosed each year with cancer. Although it’s the number one disease killer of children in the U.S., only 4 percent of federal cancer research funding is for childhood cancers. That’s where the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a nonprofit fundraising organization, comes in. As a show of solidarity with young patients who typically lose their hair during cancer treatments, volunteers at thousands of events held around the world have their heads shaved in exchange for pledges of financial support to help fill crucial funding gaps at medical institutions that treat young cancer patients. St. Baldrick’s is the world’s largest fundraising event for pediatric cancer research, contributing more than $100 million in grants since 2005. A local fundraiser, Get Bald at Mickey’s, will be held at 4 p.m. Sat., Sept. 21 at Mickey Byrne’s Irish Pub, 1921 Hollywood Blvd., which has hosted head-shaving events to benefit St. Baldrick’s since 2009. As of the end of August, some 54 local “shavees,” including event organizers Christopher Haggerty and Mickey Byrne’s owner Mark Rowe, had raised more than 50 percent of the $30,000 fundraising goal. The family-friendly event, which takes place during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, will be hosted by WPLG Local 10 morning meteorologist Julie Durda and weekend anchor Todd Tongen and feature clowns, face painters, a magician, live music, a silent auction, raffle and guest speakers, including cancer survivors and cancer research doctors. Also on hand will be several young cancer survivors, including Lauren

Bendesky, who has a team of shavees raising pledges in her honor. Lauren’s cancer was discovered by chance on the morning of May 26, 2012, when her mother Sharon happened to tickle her daughter and felt a suspicious mass on her stomach. Doctors at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital removed the 15½-lb. mass along with one of Lauren’s ovaries. On June 7 her parents told her she had cancer. The mass, lymph nodes and fluid all contained cancer cells, and two weeks later it had spread to Lauren’s bone marrow. Over the course of the next year, she underwent six rounds of chemotherapy, stem cell harvest and rescue with high-dose chemotherapy, radiation and antibody therapy. After her third round of chemo, a marrow biopsy showed no cancer cells in her marrow. After the sixth and final round, all tests and scans showed No Evidence of Disease (NED). Last January, Lauren was admitted to Miami Children’s Hospital for six weeks for high-dose chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant/rescue. The following week, she began the first of 12 radiation treatments, with daily

platelet transfusions. With each test, the result was NED. But the final phase of treatment that began last April proved to be the most difficult and kept Lauren hospitalized longer than expected with months of high fevers and other serious symptoms. She finished her last round of inpatient treatment Aug. 23 and will continue at-home medication through October. Lauren said she hopes to inspire others through her experience battling cancer. “Even with all of the bad that has

occurred I have continued to persevere and look at the positivity,” she writes on her Facebook page, Team Lauren. “I hope to use this experience to be a role model to other teenagers faced with this difficult journey. My main goal is not only to inspire children younger than me battling cancer and struggling to win but also adults much older than me not even facing cancer.” Lauren’s illness also has influenced her future career plans. “I always knew I wanted to work in medicine and especially in pediatrics, and now even more I want to be a pediatric oncologist as a way to give back,” she said. To participate in the fundraiser at Mickey Byrne’s Irish Pub as a shavee or to make a donation, visit www.getbaldatmickeys.com. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax-deductible. To learn more about St. Baldrick’s, call 1-888-899-BALD (2253) or visit www.StBaldricks.org.

SCHOOL NEWS

Somerset Academy Hollywood charter school opens for 2013-2014 academic year Enrollment Currently Open for Students in Grades Kindergarten through Sixth Somerset Academy, Inc.—a Florida-based, nonprofit educational institution with a 15-year track record of successfully operating high-performing charter schools—announced today that Somerset Academy Hollywood is opening for the upcoming 2013-2014 school year. The new charter school will cater to students in grades kindergarten through sixth and be serviced by Academica, one of the nation’s leading charter school service and support organizations with a roster of more than 100 schools throughout the country. Enrollment for Somerset Academy Hollywood students is presently open. The school, located at 1704 Buchanan St., will host a “meet and greet” for parents

SEPTEMBER 2013

and students on August 15 and officially open on August 19. With plans to eventually serve students through eighth grade, the new charter school and its staff of experienced teachers will present supreme educational opportunities through carefully planned curriculums. In technology-rich classrooms, all students will have access to computers, laptops and Promethean Boards (interactive, electronic touch whiteboards), as well as specialized software for customized instruction. The school will also feature a uniform policy and before- and after-school care. Additionally, all teachers are trained in conscious discipline, which addresses emotional intelligence and promotes conflict resolution. Somerset Academy Hollywood will be led by veteran educator and administrator, Mary C. Stuart, who also serves as the principal of Somerset East Preparatory Academy in Miramar (an “A” school), and boasts a doctoral degree in

educational leadership. “It is with great pride that I lead this school into its opening year,” said Somerset Academy Hollywood Principal Mary Stuart. “As enrollment continues and we open our doors for the first time, the Somerset team is thrilled for the opportunity to encourage a new generation of motivated learners.” Nationally recognized for its awardwinning education programs, Somerset was the first charter school system in the nation to achieve “district” accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS-CASI), the foremost organization granting external mark of quality and high standards to academic institutions in the Southern region of the U.S. As a charter school service and support provider, Academica serves in a similar capacity to a school district’s staff and board’s role in managing a traditional public school. The Floridabased organization has a proven track

record of developing and growing networks of successful charter schools throughout the U.S. and currently serves the largest population of highperforming charter schools in the state of Florida. Academica’s strategic formula of establishing schools in areas of great need has made it an instrumental resource in accelerating student and school performance nationwide for the past decade. “Academica is honored to have been chosen to provide services to this promising institution,” said Academica Founder and President Fernando Zulueta. “We are delighted for the opportunity to further expand our relationship with Somerset Academy and assist this school in providing a world-class education to its students.” For further information on Somerset Academy Hollywood, please visit www. somersethollywood.com and to learn more about Academica, visit www.

first Sunday of the month from October through May. Upcoming dates are October 6 and November 3. Car show promoter Joe Bevelacqua of Cobra Joe Productions said classic car owners and spectators alike are excited about the revival of the Dream Car Classic, which in the past has drawn both serious automobile enthusiasts and families looking for an entertaining way

to spend a Sunday. “Downtown Hollywood is the perfect location for a classic car show,” Bevelacqua said. “Hollywood Boulevard can accommodate a large number of participants as well as spectators, and the downtown area offers a great mix of businesses, from a variety of restaurants and pubs to unique boutiques and specialty shops.”

Car show participants also will receive discounts at select downtown restaurants. Car show registration fee is $20. To pre-register for the Dream Car Classic, email Joe Bevelacqua at jbevsr@msn. com and include your vehicle’s make and model. Vehicles also will be registered the morning of the show as space permits. “We have space for 85 cars,” Bevelacqua said. “I think it’s going to be a really successful show.” There is no charge for on-street downtown parking between 8:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. Free on-street parking is available in three-hour increments between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Garage parking is available for $1 per hour at the Municipal Garages located at 251 S. 20th Avenue (between Harrison Street and Van Buren Street) and 251 N. 19th Avenue (between Tyler Street and Polk Street).

Who is Hollywood’s iconic “bike guy”?

By David Volz Peter Kratochvil is a man of various passions. He loves dancing and he loves complex engineering projects. Hollywood residents may have seen Kratochvil riding around the City of Hollywood on a bicycle with a plastic covering that protects him from the elements and acts as kind of sail. It allows him to ride without depending as much on pedals. He envisions a bicycle that people could ride using his engineering concepts that would take advantage of the wind and enable people to enjoy cycling without having to work so hard on pedaling. The plastic cover he uses for his bicycle works according to the same principles birds and butterflies use to fly. Kratochvil has had an interesting life but now he is facing some challenges. He is homeless and does not speak English. He speaks Czech. To earn money, Kratochvil dances from 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. at Club Tropical in Hallandale. The owner pays him $40 a night to dance with older women who come to the Club. He recently met a friend, Irena Roy, a native of Czechoslovakia, who is trying to help him. He was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1952 at a time when the nation was under a communist government. “My father was a doctor but he did not want me to be a doctor,” said Kratochvil. “I attended the Academy of Drama in Prague and I was an announcer on the radio in Prague. I would read stories on the air.” Kratochvil also danced

professionally. He was talented in the Waltz, Cha Cha, Rumba and Tango. He has won dance contests. He once won $1,000 in a dance contest. For Kratochvil life in a communist nation was not a bad experience. He avoided problems with the government and enjoyed life. Roy agreed that life was not so bad in Czechoslovakia during communist rule. “My parents always insisted that I never discuss religion or politics. I never did and I never had any problems in Czechslovakia,” she said. Life actually became more difficult when communism ended in Czechoslovakia. Then many people lost their jobs and factories that employed thousands of people were closed. People who were used to state health care, secure jobs and long vacations suddenly had to compete in a capitalistic economy.

And many individuals struggled to adjust to a new way of life. Kratochvil decided to come to the United States in 2000. He arrived in New Orleans and then moved to the Hollywood area. “I wanted to live in an area with an ocean,” he said. “I love it here.” While being homeless is a challenge, Kratochvil believes it has allowed him to see the world differently than he would if he lived a more conventional life. He has been able to spend more time studying birds and butterflies and has been able to use this knowledge to develop his bicycle cover design. Kratochvil would like some help and has skills to offer. Those who want to help Kratochvil can contact Tom Olsen at (954) 927-8240. This interview was facilitated by Tom Olsen and interpreter Irena Roy.

Art and Culture Center teams up with Women in Distress to raise funds for art classes From October to March the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood will partner with Women in Distress to provide 20 after-school arts enrichment classes for children ages 5-12 who have experienced domestic violence.

The Center is seeking funds to enhance this project by purchasing artist sketchpads and packs of coloring pencils, plus percussion instruments and puppet supplies. Approximately 150 children are expected to participate at Women in Distress. Participants are composed of youth who receive after-school care at the facility or are

living temporarily in the 132-bed shelter. Your donation will pay for the sketchpads, pencils, instruments, and puppets. Donors will be named as an Art and Culture Center of Hollywood supporter in the 2013 Year In Review publication.

FOR GOODNESS SAKE

Joe Dimaggio Children’s Hospital awarded $75,000 grant for pediatric cancer research Hyundai Hope On Wheels® and Hollywood-area Hyundai dealers recently awarded Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital with a $75,000 Hyundai Scholar Grant to Dr. Deborah Kramer for her work on the creation of a treatment history for childhood cancer survivors. Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital is one of 40 recipients of Hope On Wheels’ 2013 Hyundai Scholar Grant. Over the course of 2013, Hope On Wheels will donate $14 million to children’s hospitals nationwide through its Hyundai Scholar Grant and Hyundai Hope Grant programs. Since 2007, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital has received $655,000 from Hope On Wheels. “We are so grateful to Hyundai and Hope on Wheels for their continued support of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation,” said Dr. Deborah Kramer. “This grant will enable us to create a Corey George

PAINS

Hyundai representatives from South Florida present a grant for $75,000 to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital for a pediatric cancer clinical program program that will improve the lives of our pediatric cancer patients.” The $75,000 Hyundai Scholar Grant to Dr. Deborah Kramer was officially presented during a Hope On Wheels Handprint Ceremony at the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital on Wednesday, August 28. During the ceremony, Hollywood-area children battling cancer placed their handprints dipped in colorful paint on a white 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. “Hyundai and its dealers remain committed to helping children in the fight against pediatric cancer,” said John Krafcik, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor America. “While cure rates approach 80 percent for some forms of pediatric cancer,

far too many children and families are devastated by the disease.” Hope On Wheels builds public awareness about the importance of this cause and provides funds to nonprofit children’s hospitals across the U.S. for pediatric cancer research. A new Hope On Wheels program encourages the public to show its support and raise awareness by “Giving Hope a Hand.” To participate in the program, supporters can simply take a picture of their hand and post it on their social media pages using the hashtag #GiveHopeAHand.

THE LIGHTER SIDE

BEACH NEWS

Slim, sexy and STRONG I cringe whenever a woman says to me, ‘I don’t want to lift weights’ or ‘strength is just not that important to me’. Not so much because I think there is something Shondelle SolomonMiles inherently wrong with not enjoying strength training, but because of the REASON most women give as to why they don’t. Most women are more concerned with how their body looks rather than what it can DO. Some may argue with me on this, and I’m open to the debate, but in the realm of fitness, when it comes to the practical application in life, there are not many things more important than strength. If you’re in an earthquake and the ceiling falls on your head, your ‘six-pack’ won’t do you one bit of good, but if you’re strong enough to push a 100 lb. piece of cement off your body, you might have a chance of saving your life or someone else’s. What if you’re starving and all you have to eat is a bottle of almond butter, but you cannot open the jar? Your ‘skinny’ jeans won’t come in too handy then, now will they? Don’t get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with wanting to look AMAZING and I love my skinny jeans just as much as you do. In fact, appearance is a significant component of your self-esteem, and consequentially, your quality of life. However if you look ‘HOT’ (for most women that means thin and ‘toned’) but you don’t have the functional strength to carry your own groceries-in a single trip, or God forbid, you have ask your spouse to help you open a bottle of spaghetti sauce, then who the heck cares if your clothing size is in the single digits? The opposite of strong is weak, and who wants to be weak? Not me, and I bet neither do you! Ironically, in a society where most women fulfill the same responsibility as their male counterparts, many still hold onto the belief that to be ‘strong’ is to be ‘masculine’. Women

20

SEPTEMBER 2013

have been conditioned to believe that strength is something only men need, and that women who can move their own furniture carry their own groceries and squat their own body weight are somehow ‘less feminine’. I’m calling BS on that one! When did a strong woman become an oxymoron? Is it a sin that I don’t need the young boy at Home Depot to help me carry my sand bags to the car AND I can put it in the trunk by myself? And guess what? When I’m done lifting sandbags, I can STILL come home, take a bubble bath, put on a pretty skirt, paint my toe nails, and do whatever else ‘feminine’ women are ‘supposed’ to do.

So here’s the bottom line ladies: There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with having or wanting to have a ‘six pack’, and you should not be burned at the stake if you cannot open your own jar of spaghetti sauce, but strength is EXTREMELY important, especially as you age, because the weaker you are, the more dependent you become and the more likely you are injure yourself in the most mundane of activities (like walking). So ladies, being strong and having a few muscles to show for it, does not make you any less of a woman. It is after all 2013, and last I heard ladies, you can be slim, sexy AND strong!

Broward researches use of processed glass for beach renourishment

Broward County is known for its twenty-three miles of award winning beaches. Broward’s beaches attract an estimated 7.2 million visitors a year and contribute $548 million annually to Broward County’s economy. But, like beaches worldwide erosion is a problem and beach renourishment is necessary. Broward Commissioners have asked that county staff conduct research to determine if using processed glass, instead of natural sand is an economically feasible idea prior to funding additional environmental testing. “The idea that we might be able to take something that’s being thrown away now and turn it into silica sand, which glass is made of, and use it on the beach and find our own source I think is really exciting,” said Mayor Kristin Jacobs who brought the issue forward for Commission discussion. Preliminary environmental testing was conducted in 2008 by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection but fell short of funding prior to completion and was inconclusive. Commissioners were told an estimated $1.5 million may be necessary to conduct additional environmental testing and monitoring over a three year period. “How much source material is available? What is the cost of glass today as opposed to when we first looked at it? Has it declined? I’m very much in favor of it because, after all, glass is sand, its silica,” said Commissioner Sue Gunzburger. “Our problem is we don’t know if this is more cost effective. We

need to determine the following: that this is the cost for beach sand. This is the cost of sand if it’s dredged up by the ton. This is the cost of sand from an upland source and this is the cost of sand if you got it from the glass project,” said Commissioner Chip LaMarca. “I too support the concept, but there are so many holes, I’m not willing to authorize $1.5 million but I am willing to say: tell us how much money you need to get us what we need to do a comparison of cost,” said Commissioner Lois Wexler. “It’s my understanding Palm Beach looked at this and it’s my understanding that they determined that it wasn’t cost effective, and so I’m wondering why they made that determination,” noted Commissioner Martin David Kiar. Another concern discussed is the ability to recycle enough glass to supplement beach renourishment. “My sense of it is, if it was economically feasible than currently there would be some private entity that would have stepped in and would have acquired some site to convert this glass into glass sand. The next step is, do we have a site in Broward County that is actually feasible to conduct such an operation,” said Commissioner Tim Ryan. Commissioners agreed to consider funding for environmental testing once a cost analysis has been conducted and additional information brought forward at a future date.

LOCAL STREET PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURES THE HUMANITY OF HOLLYWOOD by Jennifer Sandomir

Hollywood is filled with charming locals and tourists who are affectionally referred to as ‘Hollyweird’ by locals. Hollywoodbased street photographer Tom Olsen captures the humanity of these people and posts them on the Hollywood Gazette Facebook page each week. Each month Hollywood Gazette will feature one of the favorites from the page. Olsen looks for the quirky, fascinating characters that are often seen throughout the city. “I’ve been a street photographer for as long as I have memory both with and without a camera. Without a camera I began storing images and scenes I came upon which appealed to me in some way, something I continue to do to this day. Very early on I had no conscious recognition this would lead to anything in particular. I was simply content in that the experiences associated with my observations were pleasing and intriguing all at once,” explains Olsen. “This has led to an insatiable curiosity with people’s changing expressions as they go about day to day occupying the private space that surrounds them and the visible effects arising from the most subtle changes in

their stature one moment to the next. The slightest movement of the eye, the position of a hand, a change in posture, all register in my mind with curiosity. I see the progression from one moment to another taking place in response to their connectedness with their private library of stored memories and images all the while precipitating a corresponding change in how they seem to occupy their private space. What are they thinking I wonder: ‘Can I afford to put my child through school?.. Will I be prepared for my next corporate presentation or something as prosaic as ‘Do I need to buy milk?’ Capturing their stories with respect requires confidence and empathy when approaching a subject all the while without turning the action into something contrived but rather spontaneous and in the moment. It takes practice, courage and a level of comfort to get close. When people are the subject there is no alternative to becoming immersed fully in their culture. This is the only way I’ve discovered to establish trust.” Like ‘Hollywood Gazette’ on Facebook to receive these photos, news and updates on all things Hollywood.

SEPTEMBER 2013

Riff Rockit, one of the most popular performers in the growing musical genre called “kindie rock” is coming to South Florida for a special concert to benefit the Love Jen Cancer Fund of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation. The high energy performance will take place at Revolution LIVE in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday, September 29 at 3:00pm. Evan Michael, a.k.a. Riff Rockit, headlines the band which entertains kids and their parents with inspiring songs and positive messages. Born and raised in Fort Lauderdale to musical parents, the singersongwriter’s love of music began at an early age. Evan was clapping to the beat on his first birthday and by age 10 was jamming on a six-string guitar. At age 15 he was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and underwent intensive chemo treatments at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. His cancer went into remission. Two years later he relapsed and required a life-saving bone marrow transplant. Music was Evan’s way of coping during this dark and difficult time. “When I was in the hospital the second time, music was virtually part of my treatment because I had to be isolated from people until my immune system got stronger.” Thanks to the care and treatment Evan received at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, he’s been cancer free since 2001. After this life altering experience, he made a conscious decision to follow his dream. He studied at Boston’s prestigious Berklee

College of Music and graduated in 2007. He now lives his passion and tours the country entertaining, inspiring, educating and uplifting children under the alter ego of Riff Rockit. “My songs are educational rhymes for rocking good times. I just want to make music that makes kids happy and also teaches them a thing or two in the process,” said Evan. Revolution LIVE generously donated the space to host the Riff Rockit performance. Funds raised from the concert will benefit the Love Jen Fund of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation. Admission is only $10. Contact The Foundation office at (954) 2653454 or email jjohnstone@mhs.net for more information.
