Over 250 dancers from all over the south coast came along to Worthing Assembly Hall on Saturday 9th July 2018 to enjoy a one off, 2 room Modern Jive Freestyle event in aid of Erins Dream to Dance. An unexpected £3299.87 was raised through entry tickets and a raffle, making a massive difference to the worthwhile cause. Stacey Marley hosted this large event, supported by Paul of Justjive, Sue of Diamond Dance, Alex of JivePlay, and Ian and John of Danceaholics, all of which donated their time for free alongside guest DJ’s Greg Davidson & Dene Nevard.
The main raffle prize on the night was a one off signed McLaren Formula 1 staff shirt & photo signed by current drivers Fernando Alonzo & Stoffel Vandoorne complete with certificate of authenticity provided especially for the event. Other prizes included Afternoon Tea for Two at the Hilton Avisford Park, a Chocolate Hamper, Massage treatment, Hair cut and style dry, Afternoon Tea Hamper, large bottles of Whiskey, Champagne, and several free entry tickets to local dance class nights. £512 of the total raised came from the raffle.
Erin and her family joined us for the first half of the event and Erin loved being part of such a fantastic dance event, making her even more determined to achieve her dream of one day being able to dance.
