06 May Dance, Drink & Support Cancer Research!
Come sweat with us on May 11 to help raise money for blood cancer research, then join us after class to mingle over drinks!
Next Wednesday, we’ll donate $1 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Woman of the Year Campaign for each student who attends a regularly scheduled class that night at either our Rittenhouse or Midtown studio locations. Take your pick of seven classes, from Hip-Hop to Contemporary fitness to POUND. (Find the full schedule here.) Make it a double-header and we’ll donate $2 in your honor.
Additional donations will be accepted onsite and prizes will be offered for those who participate. The night will end with a social at our Midtown studio, 1301 Locust St., 2nd Floor, starting a little after 9 p.m. Drinks, snacks and, of course, dance tunes will be provided. Friends and significant others are welcome, and it’s totally acceptable to come in whatever workout attire you wore to class earlier. If you plan to come, please RSVP here so we can make sure to bring enough refreshments, and feel free to share the event with your networks.
The social is being organized in conjunction with longtime Philly Dance Fitness members Niki Shaffer and Amanda Congar. With Amanda’s nomination, Niki has been hard at work fundraising for the LLS campaign — a cause close to her heart because of her friend Rodney, who recently conquered his battle with Lymphoma. With the lifesaving treatments Rodney received, he can now go back to be being daddy and superman to his 5-year old daughter Kandra, who also calls Niki her godmother. Read more about their inspiring campaign here.
If you can’t make the party on May 11 but you still want to show your support, you can donate through this secure online portal. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you on May 11 to dance, drink, socialize, have fun and support this important cause!
