Med Student Uses Dancing Talent to Raise Money for Children's Hospital

Johnny Tackett loves to dance. He's also deeply committed to leadership, philanthropy and musical theater.

Above all, the dancers remembered the kids - the young American Family Children's Hospital patients they pledged to support. The students stayed on their feet all night after each of them had raised at least $125 for the "For Bucky's Kids!" marathon. The 2011 event brought in $65,375.

West Milford area to raise money for cancer victim

The little lady with the big smile and bigger heart who has been battling breast, throat and blood cancer for the better part of the past three years, was declared cancer-free in April on Good Friday. That was her personal "resurrection" and glimpse of a "second chance."

On Sunday, June 12, friends who so appreciate all she has done for so many, many others are holding a benefit, "Just for Judy," at the Passport Caf at Greenwood Lake Airport, 126 Airport Road, West Milford from 3 to 7 p.m., in the hope of raising funds to offset the tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills.

2. Meanwhile.... "Armored Cavalry Unit Holds Bake Sale For New Tank"

Or... "Navy Cadets Raise $1M Toward Aircraft Carrier In Weekend Talent Show"
