$300 may sound a bit overwhelming when you first hear it – we totally understand! However, it’s 100% attainable, especially when you start fundraising early and keep in contact with your Dancer Captains and Dancer Relations Coordinator throughout the year. We want to help you reach that goal and even go beyond it For The Kids! We make fundraising a team effort that is both fun and extremely rewarding. We also provide lots of resources and events to make money from such as letter writing, bucketing, and bake sales!
