"Magic Moments
of Christmas!"

Saturday Night, December 8th, 2018

Hi Dancers,


The November dance was very well attended. There was some serious bidding on the silent auction items which ended with total profit a over $1,500!

Thanks to these amazing ladies who compiled and decorated 60 baskets : Karen Kurth, Heidi Klepitsch, Soraya & Melissa Kraszczk. Furthermore, extra thanks to Karen Kurth who typed the auction sheets and to Heidi and Mike Klepitsch who helped me transport the baskets.


Contributing to the success of the evening, which would have been difficult without them, much thanks goes out to the Troesters, Gloria, Biard & Jerry, the Gleasons, Covenahs, Roths, Rose and all of YOU. You had a part in contributing to a successful event and for your contributions to the food pantry. Remember, USA Dance is a non-profit orbanization and all contributions are appeciated.


AND, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention the outstanding selection of music played by DJ Dr. Rod and Gail. Thank you!  


The holiday season is busy. But, with the shopping time saved at our silent auction, you deserve to take a break from it all and attend the Greater Fox Valley Chapter's annual charity dance for Home of the Sparrow!


Keep dancing friends!

”MAGIC MOMENTS OF CHRISTMAS!"


On Saturday, December 8th, The Greater Fox Valley Chapter of USA Dance, in conjunction with St. John's Lutheran Church, are holding the “Magic Moments of Christmas” Charity Dance for 'Home Of The Sparrow'. 


This dance is held to benefit the 'Home of the Sparrow' organization who care for some of the unfortunate homeless women and children in McHenry County.


The “Magic Moments of Christmas” charity dance will be held at St. John’s Lutheran Church’s Activity Center at 300 Jefferson Street in downtown Algonquin.


To help these folks have some Merry in their Christmas, we ask that you bring an unwrapped present, or presents if you can, appropriate for children and teenagers, boys and girls, or their moms. Remember, there is easily as much joy in giving a gift that is greatly appreciated as there is in recieving one.


DJ Dr. Rod will be playing a variety of Swing, Latin, oldies, and ballroom music and we'll have a playlist with the song and dance listed.


If you would like to bring snacks or goodies to share for the evening we will all appreciate it. Do you make a special family desert each Christmas? We'd love to try it.





Frank and Jackie Penze will teach an easy-to-learn free Waltz lesson at 7:45 p.m. The doors open at 7:15 p.m.


Please bring a donation for the food pantry.

 
Join the Greater Fox Valley Chapter of USA Dance for an evening of dancing, socializing and good fun. Admission is $8 for USA Dance members, $12 for non-members and $10 for seniors age 65+. For more information and maps, see below and www.dancefoxvalley.com website or our dancewithfrankandjackie.com website. 


IMPORTANT UPDATE

    The Greater Fox Valley Chapter of USA Dance will be holding 2019 benefit dances at St. John's Activity Center, 300 Jefferson Street, downtown Algonquin. We are currently working on confirming the dates which are usually the third week of the month.

Since our silent auction was so successful we are having an anniversary celebration (Greater Fox Valley Chapter of USA Dance will be 22 years old) with a buffet. We are working with Texas Roadhouse on the details.


February is traditionally a benefit for “Butter the care dog”. March is St. Patrick’s Day. The third week in April is Easter weekend so we are discussing whether to pass on the month. Let us know what you think. 


              Be Safe, Stay Healthy, Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
