“Where doing it for a great cause. My friends invited me Here, Charlie Paci, Gigi, a lot of great people putting this together….if we do nothing, then nothing gets done for things like Cancer. So many people approached me, I did a gig last August 10th, and there was so much love, and that’s such a good feeling. I wanna say tonight that we’re here to have a good time, I want everybody to let their hair down, have a good time, and enjoy themselves. If we do nothing, nothing gets done! Everyday is a blessing and always remember that …” SoHo Johnny
The evening’s celebration began with the sensitive invitation from philanthropist and music lover SoHo Johnny as he introduced Charlie Paci, the event’s producer and a cancer survivor himself. “Dancing For A Cure For Cancer” a party benefitting Doctor Smita Sihanouk’s Cancer Research at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
The event was held on the water at RUSSO’s on the Bay in Howard Beach, a fabulous venue featuring entertainment via Carol Williams (Salsoul Orchestras), VintageSoul (Member Jazzy a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and liver cancer survivor), and Lottie Dah (Infatuation), a breast cancer survivor.
There was dancing, music, raffles, and gourmet food in between inspiring stories from cancer survivors. The animated man with a genuine heart of gold embraced the evening dancing with the performers, and encouraging the sentiment of the evening while galvanizing the good health of his close friends seated at our table. By simply observing the warmth and smile upon Johnny’s face and those people who’s lives he has touched served as intimate evidence to his authenticity. But he wasn’t alone….producer Charlie and his team were an awesome attribute to the success of the night.
