Raffle Prizes for Evening Party Announced

Along with a night packed with dancing, we have several amazing raffle prizes that will have you tearing up the floor long after Dance Day.

Tickets are $2 apiece, or 3 for $5. The odds are in your favor because each prize will have its own respective “hat” rather than drawing from one collective pot to award the prizes. The drawing will be held around 10 p.m. immediately following the instructor performances at the Ethical Society. Winners do not need to be present to win so long as we can legibly read the contact information on your ticket.

All proceeds from the raffle will support this and future Philadelphia Dance Day events.
