Relive the 1970s at 2016’s most far-out party, the Ugly Disco. Travel back in time with thousands of Golisano Children’s Hospital supporters on Saturday, April 2 to benefit sick and injured children in the Rochester community.
The event will feature some live music from hip bands
like The Skycoasters and Disco Nation
(internationally known from Toronto), as well as a live DJ spinning some of the top radio hits of the late ‘70s. The party goes from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center. As always, participants are encouraged to wear their groovy threads and boogie shoes from the late ‘70s.
This year’s benefit will help the Ugly Disco committee inch closer to their $100,000 pledge to Golisano Children’s Hospital that will go towards naming rights to a room in the new hospital. It will also benefit the Bright Eyes Fund and the Pediatric Supportive Care Program, headed up David Korones, M.D., pediatric oncologist at Golisano Children’s Hospital.
“The goal of our committee is to provide a Disco where partying all night long actually leads to amazingly good consequences,” said Reagan Burns, marketing chair of the Ugly Disco. “We all know how great it was to be a child and we want to help the patients at Golisano Children’s Hospital get back to being kids again.”
“The planning and execution that goes into the Ugly Disco year after year is incredible,” said Stephanie Sheets, assistant director of community affairs at Golisano Children’s Hospital. “We truly appreciate the dedication of the committee and our community in making it such a fun and successful event that will continue to impact our patients and families well into our future.”
