Chris Kopec aka DJ Kopec has been DJing for 25 years - and when the social distancing guidelines were established due to the COVID-19 pandemic - he looked for an alternative outlet to bring people the music ... much like we have seen musicians host living room concerts - DJ Kopec has turned his basement into a nightclub - and he invited all his fans to party with him - remotely. Spinning 1-2 hours of family friendly dance music live on Facebook for the world to enjoy. And word of the parties has gotten out - with his Facebook parties garnering over over six million views!
And it's not just people looking to dance that have caught wind of the Saturday Night Quarantine Dance Parties ... after Kopec used the tips he received from this first event to donate 500 pizzas for Howard County Emergency Services professionals - others have stepped up ... and in the past 2 weeks he has partnered with Holly Poultry and State Street Poultry & Provisions to donate 60,000 pounds of chicken to Maryland residents in need and 30,000 breakfast sandwiches to local healthcare workers, and 12,400 chocolate bars for members of the Maryland National Guard through the generosity of H&S Bakery, Nature’s Yolk, The Hershey Company, and the United Way of Central Maryland.
But this Saturday night's Superhero themed party (April 18 from 7-9p) - that will benefit the Ulman Foundation, who continues to provide services to adolescent and young adult cancer patients through the COVID-19 pandemic, has caught the eye of a very generous and anonymous donor, who has already pledged $25,000 to the cause.
And Kopec is looking for his fans to help match their incredible donation - so a $50,000 donation can be made to The Ulman Foundation. You can donate during the party or ahead of time here: https://give.ulmanfoundation.org/dj-kopec/Donate
So get your superhero costumes ready and plan to tune into the Saturday night's quarantine dance party on DJ Kopec's Facebook page for a family-friendly “mental health break” and share your pictures and videos using the hashtag #DJKopecFamCares !
