(newswire.net — April 29, 2013) New York, NY — PENSRUS PENS, New York’s premier promotional products company, continues its efforts to raise awareness, and funding, for Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC) by joining up with the AMC Music Festival 2013, which will take place in Staten Island, New York on June 1, 2013. The annual event helps families who struggle with this rare congenital disease.


ARTHROGRYPOSIS MULTIPLEX CONGENITA (AMC) describes the phenomena of multiple congenital contractures of the bones, which may also include fibrosis and muscle weakness. Most children born with AMC survive, though respiratory muscle issues adversely affect some. Those affected by AMC typically require physical therapy and surgical intervention.


Valerie Pepe, Chairwoman and founder of the AMC Music Festival is herself affected by AMC. Despite here “dif-ability” Pepe has worked tirelessly over the years to create awareness and she is thrilled that this year’s festival will hugely benefit Shriner’s Hospitals for Children of Philidelphia, PA, owing much, she says, to joint efforts and contributions by PENSRUS PENS of Staten Island, NY.


Pepe said, “Dr. Harold Van Bosse and the team at Shriners Hospitals for Children are excited to be the recipient of the AMC Music Festival proceeds. Shriners Hospitals for Children is incredibly grateful for events like this that raise money and awareness. The hospital is dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing pediatric specialty care, innovative research and outstanding medical teaching programs for medical professionals.”


With regard to Henry Morgan, owner of PENSRUS PENS and the promotional product company’s unstinting contributions since the organization’s inception, Pepe said, “I’m certain that, in collaboration with PENSRUS PENS, our monetary goal will be easily met this year, as it has been in the past. Henry Morgan, the owner of PENSRUS PENS has always contributed generously of both promotional items and monetary gifts; This year he has promised us some awesome promo items like Koozie Can Koolers, customized pens and tote bags that are all printed with the AMC Music Festival logo. That should go a long way toward creating awareness and raising funds”
