‘Dance of the Decades’ fundraiser set for March 23

CRYSTAL FALLS— Dance of the Decades, a fundraiser being hosted by Raise Her UP, will be held on March 23 at the Paint River Landing in Crystal Falls beginning at 7 p.m.
    This fun night out is open to ladies 21 and over and will feature dancing, delicious food, a cash bar, and chances to win amazing prizes. Guests are encouraged to dress representative of their favorite decade or to come as they are.  
    Tickets are $25 and are available at the Dickinson Area Community Foundation, Lud Stoor Agency, Peninsula Title Agency and from committee members Kim Bjork, Kari Divine, Nancy Hronkin Force and Stephanie Siler.
     Raise Her UP’s mission is to empower young women to become leaders. The proceeds from the Mom Prom will be used to provide an annual scholarship to a graduating Forest Park female student, and to provide biennial leadership opportunities to female students in ninth through 11th grade.  
    Raise Her UP will encourage the growth and development of young women leaders who positively impact their peers and community. Scholarship recipients and students selected to participate in leadership opportunities will have demonstrated leadership potential and dedication to improving their community through service. In addition, students participating in leadership opportunities will return to the community with a plan to do some good.
    Committee members will mentor students by helping to develop and implement their community improvement ideas. Raise Her UP has established an endowment fund through the Dickinson Area Community Foundation, which will allow young women to benefit for generations to come.
     Contributions can be made to the Dickinson Area Community Foundation – Raise Her UP, 333 S Stephenson Ave #204, Iron Mountain, MI 49801. Contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
