Show Some Love for the 22nd Annual Pediatric AIDS Benefit Concert on Valentine's Day
January 9, 2015
This Valentine's Day, you have the opportunity to show your love and support for area children in need by attending the annual Pediatric AIDS Benefit Concert (PABC) on Saturday, February 14, 2015. The fun-filled evening showcases the talents of Drexel University College of Medicine students, faculty and staff. The student-run event will be held at the Main Building on Drexel University's campus on 32nd and Chestnut Streets.
The doors open at 5 p.m. and the concert will begin at 6 p.m. Tickets are available for purchase now and will be sold online via the event's official website, with an advanced ticket price of $20 for Drexel students and $30 for faculty and non-Drexel students. Tickets will also be available for purchase the night of the show at the door and will cost $25 for Drexel students and $35 for faculty and non-Drexel students. The evening will include a live variety show provided by College of Medicine students and faculty, a wide selection of food donated by local restaurants, a silent auction and other fundraising opportunities.
The event – now in its 22nd year – has raised half a million dollars since its beginning in 1993 and benefits the Dorothy Mann Center for Pediatric and Adolescent HIV at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children. The center is the largest of its kind in the tri-state area, providing comprehensive care, including social services, to children infected with HIV and their families. The money raised by PABC helps pay for the services of a child-life specialist and a dietitian for the program, offers the children the opportunity to attend summer camp and helps provide the affected families with emergency funds for housing and other expenses.
St. Christopher's Hospital for Children is a teaching affiliate of Drexel University College of Medicine. Most of the hospital-based physicians also hold faculty positions in the Department of Pediatrics at Drexel University College of Medicine.
