Dance Your Cash Off 2012
On Thursday night, June 21, hundreds of Seattle’s most agile, good-hearted and stylish humans will join forces at Nectar Lounge in Fremont to do the salsa, the watusi, the minuet and whatever else it takes for five straight hours to support the work of 826 Seattle!
With hot DJs, sassy celebrity judges, whimsical costumes, valuable prizes and slammin’ dance moves, this is a night of music and merriment like no other.
Every penny raised supports 826 Seattle, which teaches young people the important skills needed for creative and expository writing. Hundreds of volunteers help make it happen - all free of charge for families. Come visit us at 826 Seattle World Headquarters - located behind our storefront: the Greenwood Space Travel Supply Co. in, you guessed it, Greenwood.
