Starlight Fundraiser 2016 - EAA

Starlight Dancing Charity Fundraiser 2016

What's on
Essex Air Ambulance is a charity that provides emergency aid to all residents of Essex who are in need of emergency medical attention when an ambulance will not be quick enough.

The work they do is outstanding...but very expensive. So to help Essex Air Ambulance continue saving lives across Essex, Starlight Dancing will be hosting a fundraising event that will be packed with music, games and dancing on the 1st October 2016 in Tolleshunt Knights Village Hall.

Come along and let your ears enjoy our professional singer, your eyes enjoy our dance shows and your feet enjoy dancing all night long.

Two of Essex's finest Ballroom and Latin couples will be providing an array of dancing shows for your enjoyment. We have also booked in a professional singer and have arranged for as many prizes to be on sale (either in the auction) as possible!! 

There will also be a selection of drinks and cakes for you.

The aim
Two years ago, at our last Charity Fundraiser, we were able to raise over £2,500 for Essex Air Ambulance. It was a tremendous feat and we are so proud of how well we all did but this year, we would like to see if we can raise even more! 

Sponsored Dance
Great news! We will also be holding a sponsored dance!
The dance is a short routine that will be repeated with many couples dancing the same thing at the same time. The tricky part is it will be with a balloon in between each couple and the couples must keep the balloon from touching the floor!
The dance is a popular sequence dance called the Square Tango.

If you do not know this dance and would like to join in please come along to our practice night tonight in Marks Tey Village Hall 7.30 till nine 9 PM the dance practice is £5 per person, we will be teaching this dance for free to all that will take part in our Charity night event straight after the practice session.
If you would like to have taken part but you cannot attend on Saturday, 1 October do not worry because we will be holding another session that will be recorded so as many people as possible can get sponsorship and raise money for this very worthwhile cause.

What if I'm unable to attend but would like to donate?
If you would like to do your bit and help us raise money for Essex Air Ambulance but are unable to come along on the 1st October, a charitable donation will also be very much appreciated. You can either give us your donations in person or donate via our JustGiving page.
We will be updating the JustGiving page on the run up to the event and afterwards, once we have all the donations in so make sure to keep watch to see if we reach our target!

Also, you can get involved by joining in with our sponsored dance!
