The Flower Show Black Tie Party and After Party
check out my Philly Mag column here, which just published Wednesday. It was an epic party and took a bit of time to write and edit.
Cheers for CHOP Featuring Salt-N-Pepa
stage. One guy Tom Gillin, a 19-year-old cancer patient at The
Children’s Hospital of
Philadelphia, who created a video chronically his hair loss called “Bald
So Hard” to raise awareness of
pediatric cancer. Also pulled up on stage was Michael Steinberg, CBS Radio, and die hard Salt N Pepa fan.

Hip-hop dynamic duo does some good
At one point during their Friday-night “Cheers for CHOP” performance
at the Valley Forge Casino (1160 1st Ave., King of Prussia), Salt-N-Pepa pulled two guys on stage to grind with them, Philly Chit-Chat’s HughE Dillon told me.
One of them – 19-year old Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia patient Tom Gillin – was made Internet-famous last year with “Bald So Hard,” a song parody based on the phrase “Ball so Hard” from Jay Z‘s “Empire State of Mind.”
“Bald” referenced his chemotherapy-related hair loss. Its aim was to raise awareness of pediatric cancer.
