We were grateful to be invited by student Christina Mercincavage, one of our former Youth Ensemble dancers, and the primary organizer for the event as part of GVHS' Interact Club.
The event raised $6,700 through ticket sales, raffles, and donations!
On Saturday, March 21st, The Lady Hoofers took the stage at the Forrest Theater to help raise money and awareness for the non-profit organization MANNA. Hosted every year by the Pennsylvania Ballet, this philanthropic event brings together brilliant professional dance companies in the Philadelphia community while educating audience members of MANNA's mission: to prepare and deliver nourishing meals and counsel to people at acute nutritional risk due to life-threatening illness.
Fellow performers included BalletX, Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers, and University of the Arts School of Dance. The Lady Hoofers performed A Little Party, danced by Katie Budris, Johanna Lockwood, Deedee Mann, and Becky Mastin. Check out the pictures below to get a glimpse of an amazing performance!
