PENSRUS PENS Rocks the AMC Music Fest in Just 9 Days to Raise Awareness and Funding for ARTHROGRYPOSIS MULTIPLEX CONGENITA (AMC)

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 22, 2013) - The countdown is on and the AMC Music Festival 2013 will kick off at 3:00pm on Saturday, June 1st at Killmeyer's Old Bavarria Inn on Staten Island. Joined by PENSRUS PENS, New York's leading promotional products company, in efforts to raise funding and awareness, AMC Music Festival's Valarie Pepe has said she fully expects to achieve the Festival goal of at least $10,000 in funding for the AMCIS as well as Shriner's Hospitals for Children in Philadelphia.

"With the help of Henry Morgan and his company PENSRUS PENS' generous donations of time, money and promotional items, I feel confident that this year we will reach our goals and beyond; more importantly, though, this event will help to raise awareness and create support for families and individuals who are suffering from this horrible disease."

ARTHROGRYPOSIS MULTIPLEX CONGENITA (AMC) is a rare congenital disorder, only occurring in 1 out of every 3,000 live births. AMC describes the presence of multiple congenital contractures. Pepe herself suffers from AMC and has worked tirelessly in her adult life to help others and raise funding to find a cure. To date, no prenatal diagnostic tools are available to test for the condition.

The AMC Music Festival is an annual event that has been happening for the past 3 years, and has grown exponentially year after year. This year it will feature a full afternoon of live music entertainment from popular local bands and artists such as Joyous Noise, Scottish Widows, No More Tears, The Kitchen, Staten Island Rockers for Relief, Atomic Krush, Daphney and the Sock Monkeys and wildly popular Robert Mira who will fly in from Atlantic City just for the occasion.

Happy festivalgoers will get more than an afternoon of great music too; generous donations from PENSRUS PENS will gift attendees with imprinted AMC Music Festival 2013 tote bags that are full of goodies such as Orginial Koozie Can Koolers, branded Pens and more. Tickets are $25 online or at the door, and kids get in for free; it should prove be a great time for the entire family.
