Johnny Showcase presents PROM FOREVER A Benefit for CJD Research

World Cafe Live (Downstairs), 3025 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA

Puff up those sleeves- or slap on that cumberbund, and come dance the night away with Johnny Showcase & the Mystic Ticket, as they host the formal dance event of the year! With Special Guests Birdie Busch, Nik Greeley, Red 40 and DJ sets by DJ Robert Drake, this will be the prom experience you always wish you had.

PROM FOREVER is in Memory of John Sweeny, and proceeds will benefit The CJD Foundation.

Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease is a degenerative neurological disease that is incurable and invariably fatal. At times called a human form of mad cow disease (bovine spongiform encephalopathy or BSE), CJD causes the brain tissue to degenerate rapidly, and as the disease destroys the brain, the brain develops holes and the texture changes to resemble that of a kitchen sponge. (Wikipedia)

CJD affects roughly one person in a million, and because it is so rare, very few people are aware of the disease unless your loved one has been ripped away because of it, usually within weeks or months of first symptoms.
