Dance the night away for a good cause
on your dancing shoes and get ready to compete in the
very first Disco Dance-a-Thon, a benefit sponsored by
Earth to raise money for the Dr.
Kimberly E. Esterman Memorial Scholarship Fund.
(Middle Earth aims to raise $25,000 this year for scholarships
to graduating seniors or graduate students enrolled
in the UAlbany School of Education and pursuing advanced
studies in alcohol and other drug prevention.) Dance-a-Thon
is a continuous 24-hour event that will take place from
7:00 p.m., Friday, April 16th until 7:00 p.m., Saturday,
April 17th in the UAlbany PE building. There will be
round the clock fun with live music and entertainment,
food, raffles, contests, and more.
How to be a Dancer! (Download and print
the Dancer Application
and Donation Form.) Each dance team will be required
to raise or donate $24 each to submit with the application--that’s
$1 per hour of dancing. However the more money you raise,
the more you increase your chance of winning some great
prizes. Dance team applications are due no later than
Friday, April 2 and dancers must attend a meeting on
either Monday April 12th in LC 5 at 7:30p.m., or Thursday
April 15th in LC 24 at 7:30 p.m. Encourage your friends
to participate in Dance-a-Thon or bring them along for
“support” and to have fun!
