Valley Hospital Benefit Concert



Notes

“It went amazing,” VanderWaal, 13, said after the show. “It was very high energy. The crowd was amazing and I enjoyed it so much.” (Northejersey.com Dec. 14, 2017)

More than 600 attended the concert during which she sang original and cover songs. The benefit raised money for “Butterflies,” a program at Valley that helps families caring for children with life-threatening or life-limiting injuries. (Rockland Times) “It went amazing,” VanderWaal, 13, said after the show. “It was very high energy. The crowd was amazing and I enjoyed it so much.” (NorthJersey.com)
Grace covered “A-Team” by Ed Sheeran and “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus, and swapped out her ukulele for a guitar during the two cover songs.

”Grace took the opportunity to sing one of her favorite songs by Miley Cyrus. “I am a die-hard Hannah Montana fan,” Grace told the crowd before reflecting on the movie based on the Disney show. ” There was the last scene where she revealed that she’s actually not Hannah Montana and she sang the song ‘The Climb.’ Ever since then, that’s been my favorite song.” Accompanying herself on guitar, Grace delivers a flawless cover of the ballad. Her performance garnered praise from fans in attendance and those online, many of whom called the cover Grace’s best performance ever. ”(Countryrebel.com undated)

From the mid-1940s, seven years before The Valley Hospital opened, there was a Valley Hospital Auxiliary. Today’s Auxiliary, with more than 1,500 members in 16 branches, works to fulfill the Auxiliary’s three-fold mission: to raise funds for special projects, provide volunteer service, and serve as community liaison. Throughout its 70 year history, The Valley Hospital Auxiliary has raised more than $17 million (Valley Hospital Foundation)
