#MovesForMegan

This summer is unlike any The Charles Seller Foundation has seen! Since we will unfortunately be unable to present a live performance this summer for the first time in our history, we will be finding other ways to connect as a community and to raise money for our beneficiary, Megan More.

Kicking off this year’s fundraisers will be our very own social media challenge – #MovesforMegan !

Here’s how it works:

In celebration of our 70 year anniversary we will be challenging our membership (and all who wish to participate) to learn 8 dances from past Talent Time Productions!

– Each week we will be sending out an instructional video of a past dance, so you can learn the steps.

– You will seek out sponsors to have them pledge whatever amount of money they’d like to donate per dance you learn and post!

– Once you learn the dance, post a video of you performing it on your social media platforms!

– Use the hashtags #movesformegan #talenttimedancechallenge #charlessellerfoundation #70yearsofservice

-Be sure to tag us directly.

We hope this will be a fun way to stay connected, perform, and fundraise. Remember, the more dances you learn and the more sponsors you get, the more money we raise for Megan!

Send us an email at thecharlessellerfoundation@gmail.com to learn more about how to participate!

Beneficiary Announcement 2020

The Charles Seller Foundation is proud to announce our 2020 beneficiary, Megan More. Megan is a 10 year old girl born in Kearny, NJ, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She was diagnosed at the age of 8 on July 2nd, 2018. From that moment on, she spent the entire first week in the hospital. While at the hospital, Megan had a port place and received numerous transfusions and different medicines. Her doctors quickly discovered her allergy to a specific type of chemotherapy, one she was required to take. This discovery now forces Megan to only intake 50% of the usual dosage on a regular basis.

Despite her current prognosis being good, she still finds it difficult to do the things she loves, such as playing with her friends and her twin brother. Megan is unfortunately no longer able to attend school regularly either. Outside of school, she does not normally have the energy to participate in any extracurriculars, such as sports, dance or art.

Megan has been incredibly brave in the face of all that she has to endure. She doesn’t allow any of her challenges to affect her spirit. She is looking towards the future and getting back to her normal routine this September.

Due to COVID-19, the Charles Seller Foundation is forced to take a nontraditional route to support this strong little girl and her amazing family! Since we will unfortunately be unable to present a live performance this summer for the first time in our history, we will be finding other ways to connect as a community and to raise money for our beneficiary, Megan More. More information on our plans will be released very soon. Please help the Charles Seller Foundation in supporting Megan and her family with her battle with cancer!

2020 Cabaret Update

To our Foundation family —

Thank you for your patience as we assess and handle this unprecedented situation.

Under the guidance of The State of New Jersey and the CDC, we will not be holding our 70th Anniversary Cabaret as scheduled. More information will follow, and all tickets will be honored at any future CSF performance.

We are immensely grateful for your continued support of The Charles Seller Foundation – support that has allowed us to assist local families in the Bloomfield and surrounding areas for the past 70 years. We thank you for your understanding and generosity, and hope to see you in the very near future.

With gratitude,
The Charles Seller Foundation
