EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Two to Tango Social Dance Club, the Residence Hall Activity Board and Towers South Residence Life staff will sponsor a dance marathon April 29-30 in the Council Fire Room, Davies Center.
"Dusk 'Til Dawn Marathon" is a 12-hour dance marathon that will benefit the American Red Cross. A food drive for another community organization and raffle will be held in conjunction with the dance marathon. Every dancer will receive one raffle ticket upon registration, and one extra raffle ticket will be awarded per donated food item. Participants should bring all donations and non-perishable food items to the marathon.
Registration will begin at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, April 29, and the marathon will begin at 8 p.m. Live music will be performed by Black Majik and the Atomic Aces, Prime Time Big Band and UW-Eau Claire Jazz Ensemble IV and V. The UW-Eau Claire Student Radio Initiative will provide disc jockeys.
Senior Sarah Sornson, Two to Tango's public relations chair, is very excited about the importance of this event.
"I believe the marathon will give both students and community members the opportunity to give back to the Chippewa Valley chapter of the Red Cross," Sornson said. "I can't think of anything more important than supporting this organization who has given so much to the Chippewa Valley community."
The marathon costs $16 per person and includes a T-shirt and snack. Participants who raise $25 will pay half-price. Participants who raise $50 and groups of four who raise $100 will receive free admission.
Contact Sornson, (715) 835-9342, for more information.
