Dance for Change!
May 2, On the Gridiron, College Football Hall of Fame
It’s going to be big! Dance for Change is a brand-new venture, the result of a partnership between the Center for the Homeless and Five Star, an organization that provides high energy, character and leadership development programming for area students. Taking over the College Football Hall of Fame’s Gridiron on Saturday, May 2, from 2-7pm, Dance for Change will include dancing, group activities, eating and socializing. Participants are invited from all area high schools and junior high schools in St. Joseph and Elkhart counties—a turnout of several
hundred is expected. Throughout the day, live bands will perform, providing the backdrop for a big dance party. The gridiron of the College Football Hall of Fame will be turned into an activity zone, with food and sporting events to round out the fun.
Alongside the party-like atmosphere, however, is the serious component of the day. Raising awareness to the issues of poverty and homelessness will be a common thread throughout. Guests of the Center for the Homeless and the
champions of Five Star will speak regularly, encouraging participants to continue and at the same time, putting a face to this very important issue.
Volunteers and sponsors are still needed. Please consider joining our efforts!
