Philadelphia Sports Congress/Army-Navy Gala

ARMY-NAVY GALA INFORMATION:
DATE: December 13, 2019
TIME: 6:15pm-10:00pm
LOCATION: Pennsylvania Convention Center-Grand Ballroom & Grand Hall

The Army–Navy Game is an American college football rivalry game between the Army Black Knights of the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, and the Navy Midshipmen of the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland. The Black Knights and Midshipmen each represent their service's oldest officer commissioning sources. As such, the game has come to embody the spirit of the interservice rivalry of the United States Armed Forces. The game marks the end of the college football regular season and the third and final game of the season's Commander-in-Chief's Trophy series, which also includes the Air Force Falcons of the United States Air Force Academy near Colorado Springs, Colorado

The epic Army-Navy game makes its return to Philadelphia. Cadets from West Point and Midshipmen from Annapolis will square off at Lincoln Financial Field for a matchup between the historic rivals.
Traditionally played on the second Saturday in December, the heated bout often marks the last game of the season for both teams.
Though the big game is the main event, attendees won’t want to miss out on the many special events and competitions taking place over the weekend, many of which are free and open to the public.

National Jazz Festival

The inagural National Jazz Festival will take place on February 15th, 2020 in historic Philadelphia! We are excited and privledged to be hosting some of the best high school and middle school jazz musicians in the country. The National Jazz Festival will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Center City Philadelphia!


The National Jazz Festival was created by instrumental and vocal jazz directors, caring parents, supportive jazz musicians, and avid jazz supporters in an effort to fill the void of a lack of a major national jazz festival with an educational philosophy. Upon the cancellation of other festivals, the National Jazz Festival team saw a need to create an event that allows thousands of students to continue to share their talents and hard work with their peers from around the country. The festival executive committee is being led by Joe Bongiovi. Joe is the director of the Philadelphia Jazz Orchestra and is also the band director at Princeton High School in New Jersey. Joe is currently the President of the New Jersey Association Of Jazz Educators (NJAJE). We are fortunate to have Joe’s extensive high school jazz festival experience and his ties to Philadelphia to help launch this festival.



What the National Jazz Festival has to offer:

(visit our “Events” page for detailed information)

– Instrumental Large Ensemble & Small Ensemble Categories

– Vocal Large Ensemble, Small Ensemble, & A Cappella Categories

– “Pop-Cappella” Category for your pop-based a cappella groups

– Solo Jazz Vocal Category

– Jazz Educator Award

– An optional “Welcome Event” on Friday, February 14th

– An optional “After Party Jazz Session” on Saturday, February 15th


Official registration is open now through November 30th. Schools and ensembles will be accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis. We hope that you can attend the National Jazz Festival this February! If you have any questions or desire more information, please respond to this email or email us anytime at: [email protected]

We are excited that the city of Philadelphia has welcomed this new endeavor with open arms and can’t wait to host the National Jazz Festival and invite you to explore historic Philadelphia and the thriving music scene in Philly.


As for competing, each ensemble has the opportunity perform in either a competitive or non-competitive class. There are no ratings, however at the end of the evening the top 4 ensembles in each division will be announced. A full recap sheet of competitive groups will be released at the end of the festival. Non-competitive groups will obviously not be included on that recap.



To enhance your NJF experience, we will be announcing some optional added events during the weekend in Philadelphia! This info will be coming soon!

Pink Invitational - Unite for HER

COMPETITION DATES: February 21-23, 2020
LOCATION: Pennsylvania Convention Center
GYMS: Halls D + E (2nd Level)
BOX OFFICE: Hall E Entrance (2nd Level)
VENDOR DISPALYS: Broad Street Atrium (1st Level)

INFORMATION: https://uniteforher.org/events/pink/


Each year over 3,500 gymnasts participate in the Pink Invitational and over 12,000 attendees gather in unity to honor and celebrate the lives of those touched by breast cancer. 100% of the net proceeds from the Pink Invitational go directly to caring for the physical and emotional needs of breast cancer patients in the local and gymnastics communities through Unite for HER nonprofit organization.
When long-time gymnastics coach Sue Weldon was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004, she began searching for information on therapies that would complement the medical treatments she was receiving. What she discovered was a lack of easily accessible resources on topics like nutrition, acupuncture, massage, yoga, counseling and other ways for breast cancer patients to enhance their wellness and care for their emotional, spiritual, and physical needs.
In 2009 Sue created the Pink Invitational~Gymnasts Unite fundraising and outreach event with the support and partnership of her gym AJS Pancott Gymnastics. Sue recognized that gymnastics events offer a unique opportunity to encourage breast health awareness among girls and young women while raising funds in support of women affected by breast cancer and their families.
The Pink Invitational unites gymnasts in a USA- sanctioned meet where athletes compete in a sport they love while supporting breast cancer initiatives and learning about the importance of lifelong wellness. Proceeds from the event enabled Sue to found Unite for HER non-profit organization later that year.
Unite for HER was created to bridge the gap for breast cancer patients, funding and delivering complementary therapies to women affected by breast cancer at no cost to the participant. Each year Unite for HER raises funds to support the Wellness Program and support women affected by breast cancer in Philadelphia region and nationwide through the HER care box program. The Pink Invitational is Unite for HER’s largest fundraising event, supporting over 60 percent of the organization’s programming and outreach.

The International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society (MDS) is a professional society of clinicians, scientists, and other healthcare professionals who are interested in Parkinson's disease, related neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental disorders, hyperkinetic movement disorders, and abnormalities in muscle tone and motor control.
In recent years, there has been tremendous growth in new diagnostic information, pharmacological and neurosurgical treatments for movement disorders, as well as a greater understanding of impaired motor control function. MDS offers you and your patients an essential link to this knowledge.
In 1985, the Movement Disorder Society was founded on the initiative of Professors Stanley Fahn and C. David Marsden, whose leadership and vision guided the expansion of clinical expertise and research in this field. This not-for-profit organization merged in 1992 with the International Medical Society for Motor Disturbances. Publication of the journal Movement Disorders began in 1986, and the first International Congress was held in Washington, D.C., in 1990.
In 2013, The Movement Disorder Society officially changed its name to the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society, in order to recognize the growing importance of Parkinson’s disease care and research within the field of Movement Disorders
