NEW YORK, July 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The T.J. Martell Foundation is proud to announce that it will celebrate its 14th Annual Family Day on Sunday, September 15th, 2013 at Roseland Ballroom in New York City. This year's Family Day will honor Paradigm Agency's Marty Diamond and his family, Marilyn, Apple and Story, for their outstanding support of the organization over the years.
Multi Grammy award winning singer Jason Mraz will perform live at the event along with Ed Sheeran and rising pop star Austin Mahone who are both taking a break from their sold out tour with superstar Taylor Swift to perform at Family Day. Disney breakout star Bridgit Mendler from the hit series "Good Luck Charlie" will round out the line-up as the events guest host. Additional guests and performers are expected to be announced soon.
Family Day is one of the music industry's signature events providing a spectacular day full of fun games, carnival activities and food to raise money for leukemia, cancer and AIDS research. Having steadily grown into one of the Martell Foundation's most successful events, Family Day has raised close to $5 million for Martell-funded research at twelve hospitals across the country. Last year's sold out event honored Grammy award winning band Train with performances by Cobra Starship, Cody Simpson and new singing sensation Ariana Grande.
Marty Diamond noted, "My family and I are honored by the recognition from T.J. Martell. I have always supported and respected their research efforts and we plan to make this Family Day a huge success on all fronts."
According to Marcus Peterzell, Family Day Chairman and Ketchum Sports & Entertainment's EVP of Entertainment, "Everyone in the industry knows that Marty is a true pioneer in the modern live music world, and with he and has family as our Honoree we are assured that this year's event will be one our best."
