Dance Across the Decades is in its third year now as a fundraiser for the South County Community Services (SCCS). It’s a fun time to hear new and old music and dance steps that do in fact cross all the genres from the 20s to the 21st century, says Danna Downing, SCCS executive director.
“We needed to find a source of new funding for the agency,” Downing said. “Promoting a fun way to raise important dollars for the services offered, seemed like a win, win, for everyone.” The event will be held at St. Martin of Tours Catholic Church in Vicksburg, on Saturday, April 23 from 7 to 10 p.m. The music will be by DJ Jimmy Lawless of Debiak Entertainment. There will be heavy hors d’oeuvres, complimentary beverages and a cash bar.
A silent auction has become an important part of the event, even though it’s not closely connected to dancing she noted. That’s because so many interesting and valuable items have been donated to the auction. They are listed in the next story on this page.
The cost of the dance is $65 per couple or $35 for individuals before April 15. Reservations can be made by calling SCCS at 649-2901. Tickets at the door are $75 per couple and $40 for individuals. The important thing is that 75 percent of all proceeds go to support the agency’s programs.
