Dana's Angels Benefit Gala & Concert
With Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons

 
FRANKIE VALLI & THE FOUR SEASONS

DANA’S ANGELS BENEFIT GALA AND CONCERT
WITH FRANKIE VALLI & THE FOUR SEASONS
Friday, May 20, at The Palace Theatre

Dana’s Angels Research Trust (DART) will hold its annual Gala Benefit and Concert on Friday, May 20, 2011, with Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, at the Palace Theatre in Stamford, Conn.  One of the hottest tickets on Broadway is Jersey Boys, and DART’s Gala night will be a spectacular opportunity to see the real Frankie Valli on stage – and in Fairfield County!  The evening’s festivities will be hosted by Kathie Lee and Frank Gifford.  The Gala prior to the concert will feature a 1960’s Rock ‘n Roll theme (for those that really want to get into the spirit), and will offer an Italian-themed pasta bar, provided by Rao’s Specialty Foods, elegant wine and hors d’oeuvres reception, and a silent and live auction. Some of the fabulous auction items include table rights to the exclusive Rao’s Restaurant in New York City, a week in Turks and Caicos, dinner and a screening with Chazz Palminteri, Tickets to Rihanna and Cee Lo Green, among other unique and outstanding items.  Concert tickets are $125, $75 and $45 (+SCA fees) and are available through the Stamford Center for the Arts/Palace Theatre box office at http://www.scalive.org or 203-325-4466.  Gala tickets start at $300 and include the reception prior to the concert and premiere seating; Gala tickets are available by invitation and at http://www.DanasAngels.org.
 
Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons will be on stage with their full band and will perform many of their Top-40 hits like Sherry, December 1963 (Oh What A Night), Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Grease, My Eyes Adored You, and many more.  Thanks to the volcanic success of the Tony-winning musical Jersey Boys that chronicles the life and times of Frankie and his legendary group, the real Frankie Valli is packing concert halls coast-to-coast.
 
Frankie Valli rose to fame in 1962 as the lead singer of the Four Seasons.  He’s had 71 chart hits, including 40 in the Top 40, 19 in the Top 10, and eight Number One Songs. He has toured the world continuously and his songs have been played millions of times on the radio, on Broadway, and in movies like The Deer Hunter, Dirty Dancing, Mrs. Doubtfire, Conspiracy Theory and The Wanderers, and the hit television show, The Sopranos.  More than 200 artists have done cover versions of Frankie’s Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, from Nancy Wilson’s jazz treatment to Lauryn Hill’s hop-hop makeover. And Frankie’s Rag Doll was the inspiration for Billy Joel’s Uptown Girl.  Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990, Frankie was born Francis Castelluccio on May 3, 1934, and grew up in a public housing project and on the tough streets of Newark, N.J.  As the character of Tommy DeVito, Frankie’s friend and fellow Four Season, says in Jersey Boys, “If you’re from my neighborhood, you got three ways out: you could join the Army; you could get mobbed up; or, you could become a star.”  At an early age, Frankie chose “Door Number 3.” When he was seven, his mother took him to New York City’s Paramount Theater to see Frank Sinatra.  “I saw Sinatra coming out on stage,” recalls Frankie, “and the way he was lit up, it was like he had an aura around him. I decided then and there that’s what I was going to do – be a successful singer.”  After nine years of being in a band, American Bandstand became his big break when the Seasons sang Sherry and they suddenly became an overnight sensation and Sherry became a Number 1 song.  From 1962 to 1978, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons sold more than 100 million records.  For decades after their heyday, Frankie and the Seasons continued to be a top concert draw, and radio constantly played their classics, not to mention the new remixes that kept popping up on the charts.  In 2007, Frankie Valli had a sold-out concert tour and a new album, Romancing the ‘60s, and since then, has still had a sold-out concert tour each and every year.
 
“We are so excited to have Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons perform for the DART Gala Benefit Concert this year,” noted Phil and Andrea Marella, founders of Dana’s Angels Research Trust.  “We have been big fans of Frankie Valli for many years; and our children are even more excited!  There is just something about Frankie’s music that makes people of every generation want to get up and dance.  We fully expect the Palace Theatre to be dancing in the aisles on May 20th.”
 
Dana’s Angels Research Trust is a non-profit organization that funds research into a rare disease, Niemann-Pick type C, a fatal, cholesterol storage disease affecting children.  Two of the Marella’s four children, Dana and Andrew, have NPC. Although children and some adults worldwide are afflicted with Niemann-Pick type C disease, research has been extremely limited primarily because of insufficient funding, the smaller population of those affected, and a lack of public awareness. Currently, children with NPC rarely live past their early teens, and there is no cure for NPC.  Today, there are limited treatment options, with experimental therapies and medications being tried with hope that there will be progress. Researchers believe unlocking the key to NPC may well lead to cures for HIV/Aids, heart disease, stroke and Alzheimer’s.  
 
The Marella’s children have been on different treatments that have helped keep the disease at bay – especially for Andrew, who is currently 11 years old and was diagnosed early and started treatment at a young age.  His sister Dana, who is now 17, was not diagnosed until she was eight. She is now confined to a wheelchair, no longer talks, and requires complete care, but because of some successful treatment, she is still able to attend school.  
 
To date, DART has raised close to $2 million toward the search for a cure for NPC. DART is particularly proud of its commitment to a unique therapy development approach for additional NPC treatments called SOAR-NPC or Support Of Accelerated Research. Working with other NPC families and organizations, SOAR has created a multidimensional collaborative drug development program searching for an effective cocktail treatment for NPC. The ambitious goal is to have at least two or three new NPC therapies ready for clinical trial in 2011.
