After a 3 year hiatus due to the pandemic, this unique charity event returns and is scheduled for 6 pm on April 28 at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott. The family-friendly event features local leaders and community members, as the live dance entertainment. The evening includes a buffet dinner, cash bar, live and silent auction, photo booth, dancing, and much more. Fred Astaire Dance Studio in The Woodlands has partnered with the Y to provide the dance partners, lessons, and choreography for the community stars.

Each year, volunteers take to the dance floor to compete for votes and raise funds for The Woodlands Family YMCA. Every dollar raised from the purchase of tables, seats, auction items, and votes goes to the YMCA Annual BETTER US Campaign, which provides community-strengthening YMCA programs like water safety education, after school enrichment, teen leadership, youth sports, and outreach & supportive services available to everyone regardless of age, income, or background. The YMCA is committed to Empowering Youth, Building Healthier Families and Creating Social Equity for ALL.

“This event is the talk of the town, year after year,” said Roxanne Davis, YMCA Community Liaison/Event Director. “Guests are eager to witness a friend, colleague or family member step out of their comfort zone and onto the dance floor for such a worthy cause. Votes can be purchased! The needs of our community are diverse and evolving, and the Y is needed now more than ever. Funds raised ensures the YMCA is available to all and that everyone has equal access to the resources and tools they need to grow and thrive. Together we are Stronger. Help us Multiply our Impact in 2023 build a BETTER US. I promise you will be inspired, moved, and entertained.”
