Want to dance for a good cause with great people?

Join Ramona Holloway and Mix 107.9 at Family Dance Party CLT on Saturday, June 10th from 1pm to 5pm at Roxbury Nightclub.

Ramona recently joined Charlotte Today to talk about the upcoming Family Dance Party CLT. Alongside her was Rylee Goodwin, a 5th grader at Mountain Island Charter School. Rylee is also a member of the youth marketing team for the Family Dance Party CLT.

Created for families to support the Alzheimer’s Association, the Family Dance Party presented by Jamison Realty will be the most fun parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and kids can have on a Saturday afternoon. This years theme is called “Remember the Love!”

“I got involved in a video project that taught my classmates five things they can do to help people with dementia” says Rylee.  Rylee goes on to say “I didn’t know that Alzheimer/Dementia was listed as one of the top 10 diseases that affect older people.”

The education is sorely needed.  “It’s about making a connection with your loved one as they fight this heinous disease that robs them of their memory” says Holloway. 100% of the proceeds from Family Dance Party CLT go the Alzheimer’s Association Western Carolina chapter.

The event will include DJ Arroe Collins from LA Productions, games, and a dance contest with a $200 prize! Plus prizes from Taste of Charlotte and Picture Project CLT!   You can donate a family 5 pack for $50.
