Salt-N-Pepa Performing at CHOP Fundraiser
Friends of CHOP is going ’80s hip-hop for its upcoming Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia benefit, Cheers for CHOP, with organizers tapping rap queens Salt-N-Pepa as headliner.
This performance is a rare treat for Salt-N-Pepa (aka Cheryl James and Sandra Denton) fans; they’ve only made a handful of public appearances together in the past several years. They opened for Public Enemy in 2012 at the Martin Luther King Jr. Concert Series in Brooklyn, and last fall they appeared in a Geico commercial singing their signature tune, “Push It.”
The second annual Cheers for CHOP is taking place at Valley Forge Casino in King of Prussia on Saturday, February 28th, with proceeds benefiting CHOP’s groundbreaking Child Life, Education and Creative Arts Therapy program.
Like all galas, Cheers for CHOP will be rife with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and silent and live auctions. Last year’s party raised more than $400,000 for the hospital, which dedicates itself to the health care of children. So it’s good deeds and Salt-N-Pepa all around.
