Stand Up and Get Down for Teens is Teen Health Connection's signature event and annual fundraiser. The 2017 event was held Saturday evening, September 23, 2017 at The Ballantyne Hotel and Lodge. The event was a wonderful celebration of Teen Health Connection's 25 years of serving teens and families. We began the evening with dinner and a STAND UP comedy performance, by Sid Davis, followed by a ceremony honoring the 26th Judicial District Juvenile Court Judges, the 2017 recipient of the Dr. John G. Johnston Award for Excellence in Adolescent Medicine and Health Once again the night ended with a chance to GET DOWN with everyone's favorite party band, Too Much Sylvia.
