Los Angeles, CA (PRUnderground) June 3rd, 2016
On May 28, Framed Entertainment & EmazingLights hosted an event at Los Globos called “Glove for a Cause.” The event featured the latest dance fad, gloving, and a percentage of proceeds from the evening were donated to the Walk and Roll Foundation.
Gloving is a type of modern dance where the dancer wears gloves that have LED lights on the fingertips, which accentuate hand and finger movements. Gloving is popular at raves. Organizers of the event provided disabled electronic dance music fans and other attendees with access to light gloves so that they could be “empowered through self expression.”
The event was inspired by Matthew Hernandez, a 16-year-old paraplegic who has cerebral palsy. Matthew, who has chronic paralysis in his limbs, discovered that gloving made a significant difference in the mobility in his right arm, an improvement that even doctors don’t understand. Now, Matthew is quite well known for his gloving talents; he has appeared on Univision TV and has a popular Instagram account where fans can follow him.
Some of the proceeds from the event were donated to the Walk and Roll Foundation. This organization helps people with spinal cord injuries and other disabilities to live full lives. They sponsor a Wheelchair Dance Team, provide advice and resources to help those with disabilities and their families, and educate parents and teachers on the dangers of distracted driving, accepting others and making healthy and positive choices.
“Matthew’s story is so inspiring and a testament to the benefits of dance and movement,” said Ahmed Nashaat, who attended the event. “I’m happy to be a part of an event that was so fun, but also was for a good cause.”
