It’s time to hit the dancefloor and throw some shapes!
Putting on a 24-hour dance-a-thon offers a fun and straightforward way of raising money for your organization. Get a group of willing participants to sign up (either individually or as couples) then encourage them to get pledges from friends, relatives and neighbors. Allow enough time before the event so that all of your dancers can collect plenty of donations from those in their nearby community.
Next, locate a decent venue with enough space for all of your dancers to strut their stuff — something like a community center or a gym attached to a school will work well. Look for a central location that’s easy to access for everyone who’s coming along.
Make sure there are beverages and light snacks on sale to keep the dancers (and spectators) going for the whole day. A DJ can be a good idea, but a stereo and a CD player (or a Spotify playlist) is a cheaper option and lets everyone have a say on the music being played — participants might want to bring along their own CDs or their own iPods. Have a small prize available for the last ones left dancing.
