Parents Who Rock's Sock Monster and El Kabong! will be playing a benefit concert, with singer James Galione (visit him on MySpace) this Sunday, March 7, to help raise money to offset medical bills for Ben and Cherie Posluszny and family. Ben's mother, Chris, is a teacher at the Montclair Cooperative School.
Ryan, the Posluszny's oldest son, 13, has been hospitalized for a rare, aggressive skin-eating infection in his leg. After 9 operations, Ryan is finally doing better, although he faces months of skin grafts, reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation. His mother, Cherie, however, is currently recovering from an emergency appendectomy she suffered after collapsing at the hospital where Ryan was in the ICU. (Click on flyer, left, to read more.)
The show will take place at Just Jakes, 30 Park Street, Montclair, from 7-10 p.m.
Besides live music, the evening will also feature amazing raffle prizes, including one-week accomodations in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; a one-year membership at the Montclair Art Museum, a Flip video camera, original artwork, gift certificates, business consulting packages and much more. Check back for more information throughout the week.
