Dance For Life...and make a difference
Pajama and Book Drive for the Utah Foster Care Foundation
Bountiful, Utah (December 12, 2015) —For the sixth consecutive year, several local dance studios are coming together for the Dance for Life benefit concert and pajama project. The annual concert—to be held December 12, from 2:30pm to 6:00pm at Bountiful High School—brings the local dance community together with the purpose of collecting pajamas, books and donations for children in need.
“Our goal is simply to make a difference,” shared Amy Moore of Studio 56 Dance in Murray, Utah. “We wanted to create an event where our dancers could perform with the purpose of bringing awareness to those in need during the holiday season.”
Each participating studio will spend the weeks leading up to the concert collecting new pajama and book donations for children of all ages to be delivered to several chapters of the Utah Foster Care Foundation, as well as several other local shelters and charity foundations.
“So many of us have grown up with the tradition of opening a new pair of pajamas on Christmas Eve,” continued Moore. “We want to give others that same opportunity. We feel like this is a wonderful way to not only help even our youngest dancers grasp the concept of giving, but also create more holiday spirit and joy at the same time.”
If you would like to participate, you may deliver donations directly to any of the participating studio locations, as well as attend the Dance for Life benefit concert to be held December 12, from 2:30pm to 6:00pm at Bountiful High School in Bountiful, Utah.
