Pars and a Purpose for Children’s Cure

Sat Oct 22 at 02 pm @ Crane Lakes Golf And Country Club, 1850 Crane Lakes Blvd, Port Orange

Fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Hospital Luncheon and Dance 2-6+ p.m. on October 22, 2022, provided and hosted by Rose Villa Restaurant.


David Vanvalkenburgh is raising funds to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s lifesaving mission of finding cures for children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases, and he needs your help to reach his fundraising goal.

How your donation helps:

Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands of more children.

For more information, contact Dave Van at 386-383-3120.

Experience the hyper-realistic sights and sounds of what a Queen concert was like in the early 1980s, filled with all of the many hits, incredible vocals, stories about Queen and the songs, costume changes, and high energy sing along songs that will lift you off your seat.

Absolute Queen is an amazing realistic Queen show that replicates the songs and effects and music note for note live. Lead Singer and Welshman Martyn Jenkins fronted the European Touring Queen show “Night at the Opera” for years in Europe, playing for The Queen Fan Club and performing for Brian May and Roger Taylor.

The band has spent hundreds of hours in the studio and you will hear exact multiple harmonies live that you hear on the real Queen records but sung by Absolute Queen. Their attention to detail is astounding and you have to experience them performing Bohemian Rhapsody live to truly appreciate the incredible performance of this masterpiece song as Queen envisioned it.

With the massive success of the Bohemian Rhapsody film breathing new life and notoriety into Queen’s music, Absolute Queen will perform every song from the film and many more deep cuts and hits as well like Best Friend, Keep Yourself Alive, We Are The Champions, Love Of My Life, Play The Game, and Another Ones Bites the Dust just to name a few.
