The deadline to register is THIS FRIDAY! Also, start sending out emails asking for donations from family/friends because if you raise $50, you’ll receive raffle tickets for some awesome raffle prizes such as a Nintendo Wii, Southwest plane tickets, entertainment packages, and MORE!

**When you register, you have the option to either register as a regular Dancer, or a DM VIP. The difference is that DM VIP’s pledge to raise at least $50 and stay the whole night. If you think you can do that, register as VIP so you can get exclusive benefits at the event!**
