Friends and family of a woman from Dunmore who lost her battle with cancer are planning their third annual fundraiser to support the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute in her memory.
Judi Hartridge was a vibrant and giving nurse, who passed away at the age of 43 after a year-long battle with cancer. To honor her generous and loving nature, Judi’s friends and family began the Judi H Rock On annual dance party. This year’s event will take place on May 5th from 5 – 10 p.m. at the Scranton Cultural Center and will feature a night of food, fun, and dancing, with music provided by Paul LaBelle and The Exact Change and Old Friends. Tickets to the event are $20 and include entry into a raffle to win the “Pink Lady 3” Ibanex Acoustic/Electric Guitar, an iPad, or a one-year membership to Planet Fitness. Tickets can be purchased prior to the event by calling 1-800-424-6724 or visiting www.judihrockon.com.
