Dance-a-Thon FUNdraiser @ Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex
May 26 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

This year we’re excited to shake and shimmy things up with a Dance-a-Thon. The Dance-a-Thon allows us to fund raise for all of our wonderful activities we have in store for next year it’s also a great way to celebrate with each other and get to know other UAD members!

There will be fun door prizes, face painting and some exciting mini-dance competitions like musical chairs, limbo and freeze dance where you can win too! We’ll be serving hot dogs, fries, chicken fingers, veggies and ice cream. Please let your group leader know if you have dietary restrictions that we can accommodate.

Please provide your RSVP to Celesta at celestagaba@gmail.com and include your family name and total headcount of attendees, and RSVP to your group leader by Monday, May 20, 2019.

If you are interested in helping or know of any students looking for volunteer hours please email celestagaba@gmail.com to be added to the volunteer list.

We can’t wait to see you all there!
