Dancing for Special Stars


Location: Anne Nicole Nelson auditorium at MSU.
Date: Wednesday, October 11th 2017
Time: 6:00 PM

Fundraiser for Special Olympics, dancing event.

“Dancing for Special Stars” is a dance contest patterned after the hit television program “Dancing with the Stars.” This event is a fundraiser for Special Olympics North Dakota (SOND) held in Grand Forks in April and Minot in October and will feature area celebrities paired with local dance instructors.  Each couple performs a dance of their choice. The dance team with most votes (from donations, audience votes from tickets received with admission ticket-30 points, judges’ scores) wins the competition.  Audience members can also buy additional points at the event for $1 per point to go to their favorite dance couple(s).


Hunger SNAP
The Hunger SNAP Challenge ended at the end of September.  With the funds raised via Facebook along with Gate City's contribution and Magic City Lions Club, we raised an additional $2,200. The money from the Facebook fundraiser will be sent to Minot Area Homeless Coalition.

Thanks for all the support for such a great cause!
