Swingshift and the Stars – October 19 and December 14
Thanks to the efforts of some generous folks in town who love our school, TC Christian was nominated for, and has now been selected by, Swingshift and the Stars. Originally based on the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ format, Swingshift and the Stars (SATS) began in 2008 and is in its 11th year in Traverse City. It has two primary goals:
- Raise money for select nonprofits
- Raise awareness for select nonprofits
Since its inception, SATS has raised over $3 million for area nonprofits. Their events are held at the City Opera House and are typically sold-out affairs. TC Christian is one of just eight area non-profits to participate in this year’s program and will participate in two events:
The first event is a dance contest. Our nominated dancer is Adam Miller (Class of ’00, Parent, Board Chair) who is paired with a professional dance instructor. Together they will work up a high energy dance routine to present to the judges and all the attendees with the hope of winning the night and earning donations.
The second event is a Lip Dub. TC Christian will have up to five students and/or teachers participating in what can only be described as a highly choreographed and entertaining presentation. The Lip Dub team has the same objective as Adam and his instructor, namely winning the night and earning donations.
We have a limited number of tables and seats available for these events. If you would like information on sponsoring a table and/or obtaining seats for either event, please contact our Director of Mission Advancement, Craig O’Connor.
