Dancing for charity


Groenvlei High School will host its third 12-hour dance-a-thon on Friday and Saturday May 6 and 7, to raise funds for the school’s outreach programme, The Sunflower Fund (“Matrics host dance-a-thon”, Athlone News, September 16, 2015). This project is aimed at creating awareness about leukaemia and funds will also be allocated to potential bone marrow donors who cannot afford the costs involved.

This year’s neon-themed 12-hour dance-a-thon, organised by the staff and pupils, will host various DJs who have volunteered their services. The purpose of this event is to raise funds for the outreach project chosen by the matriculants. The dance-a-thon is open to all current and ex-pupils, pupils at neighbouring school as well any other under-21s who would like to take part. Security will be strict to ensure the safety all party-goers.

The event will take place in the school hall from Friday May 6 at 6pm until 6am on Saturday May 7. Tickets are currently being sold at school at R40 each and will also be available at the door on the night. Contact the school at 021 703 2227 for ticket sales.
