“Blingo to Cure Duchenne" Benefit

May 3, 2014 7:30 PM

Inaugural Event presented by Bernie Robbins Jewelers; honoring philanthropists Wayne and Kimberly Kimmel; featuring celebrity guests Ed Rendell, Maria Papadakis, Cory Wade Hindorff, Marisa Magnatta and Sarah Burgess. 

CureDuchenne, a nonprofit that raises awareness and funds research to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, will host its first Blingo to CureDuchenne event on May 3 at the Hyatt Regency in Philadelphia. Blingo is an elegant evening of bingo and bling with celebrity guests to raise funds to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The event will honor local entrepreneurs and philanthropists Wayne and Kimberly Kimmel, and will include Maria Papadakis of Comcast SportsNet and Philly.com as MC. Appearances will include former Philadelphia Mayor and Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell; model Cory Wade Hindorff from cycle 20 of America’s Next Top Model; CNN on-air health expert Dr. Jennifer Caudle; The Preston and Steve Show’s Marisa Magnatta; and The Monday Morning Quarterback’s Andrew Brandt. Providing the night’s entertainment will be DJ Zeke Thomas and singer-songwriter Sarah Burgess, a contestant on American Idol season 6, whose 7-year-old brother lives with Duchenne. 

Blingo to CureDuchenne is presented by Bernie Robbins Jewelers who will provide exquisite jewelry for display and auction at the event. Guests will arrive in cocktail attire, play bingo with celebrity callers, win amazing prizes, enjoy delicious food and cocktails at the Hyatt Regency; bid on auction items and learn more about Duchenne.

Duchenne is a progressive muscle-wasting disease that impacts 1 in 3,500 boys. Boys are usually diagnosed by 5 and confined to a wheelchair by 12. Most don’t survive past their mid-20s. Currently, there is no approved treatment for Duchenne. All proceeds from Blingo will support the most promising research projects aimed at treating and curing Duchenne.
