Dance the night away for a good cause

Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to compete in the very first Disco Dance-a-Thon, a benefit sponsored by Middle 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!

Can’t dance but want to help? Download and submit the Pledge Form with your donation or recruit others in your organization to help raise money. To find out about sponsorship levels or for more information contact: cwaxman@uamail.albany.edu.
