Blavat emceed a fun 50s- and 60s-themed sock hop for the residents there who had no idea he’d be hosting their event.
Although the majority of the residents are wheelchair bound, Blavat managed to get them singing, tapping their feet and clapping their hands to the familiar tunes of their youth.
This wish was made possible by a generous donation from Carol and Jack Lieberman.
