The United Way of Southern West Virginia’s Signature Fundraising Event is back for its EIGHTH season!

Join us on September 20th for an amazing show in support of an amazing cause: fighting for health, education, and financial stability for southern West Virginia communities. Our 6 dancing couples have been fundraising and practicing all summer long to deliver a spectacular performance and raise as much money as possible for our United Way!

Doors open at 6pm with hors d’oeuvres, dinner, and a cash bar available throughout the show, which begins at 7:15pm. For every $5 donation made on behalf of a couple, they will receive one vote towards the coveted People’s Choice Award. Don’t miss out on the chance to have a blast while making a meaningful difference in the lives of our struggling neighbors.

For ticket information, please call the United Way of Southern West Virginia at 304-253-2111.
