It's the last dance and friends and fans of the legendary Jerry Blavat are invited to the party.

It still seems surreal that Jerry Blavat won't be holding court this summer in Margate.  Jerry meant so much to generations of people from Philadelphia, South Jersey and beyond.

Blavat passed away this past January at the age of 82, leaving a huge void in the fabric of the Jersey Shore.

Friends and family of Jerry Blavat have announced plans for a "final" dance at Memories in Margate, scheduled for July 1st.

This event is to benefit the new non-profit, The Geator Gold Foundation.  The foundation was formed to preserve the memory of Jerry Blavat, the legendary Philadelphia disc jockey and night club owner as well as the music he loved.

Jerry's influence on the Philadelphia music scene is undeniable.  He was much more than a disc jockey.  Jerry played a big role in introducing such artists as Dionne Warwick, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons

Jerry has entertained generations of fans and passionately worked to keep the sound of the 50's, 60's 70's and 80's alive.

He was an active member of the community who was known for generously donating his time and talent to help the community.

Tickets are 50 dollars and must be purchased in advance.  Organizers say there are few tickets remaining.

This is an opportunity to pay tribute to the man, while partying with great friends and music.  One would think, this is exactly the kind of event Jerry would love.

As Blavat would say, Keep on rockin' cause you only rock once!
