The Ebo Strong Foundation is hosting the second annual Ebo Gala on Friday, April 24 from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees.
The gala is a family-friendly event for adults and children. There will be ice skating, a DJ, photo booth, carnival games, food, drinks, and raffle prizes.
The Ebo Strong Foundation honors the legacy of Steven Eric “Ebo” Eberling. At 15-years-old the bright all-star hockey player and former baseball player at Lenape High School was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in his femur. During the next three years he would undergo many rounds of chemotherapy, multiple surgeries at CHOP and travel to Nidda, Germany for alternative treatment. Throughout Ebo’s ordeal he showed his true character, an unwavering positive attitude, courageous spirit and relentless determination.
Tickets are $45 for adults and $20 for children. They can be purchased in advance at ebostrong.com or at the door. Proceeds from the event go toward the Ebo Strong Foundations, which supports families with pediatric cancer, provides assistance to student-athletes in the community and provides college tuition assistance to Lenape High School seniors.
