Annual Jan colleknon hospice benefit
In early 2014 we decided that we wanted to do something to honor our studio founder, Jan Colleknon, and what better way to do it than putting on a spectacular stage show and raising a bunch of money for a good cause. Jan passed away in 2011 after being on hospice for several months, so as a thank you to all the dedicated people who helped take care of her in her time of need, we decided to raise the money for Tillamook Hospice.
On July, 19th 2014 our 204 student, 6 instructors, and countless volunteers helped us to raise nearly $6000 in our first year alone. We performed over 40 numbers, served delicious appetizers, and gave away awards and scholarships to a few very dedicated dancers.
Tickets for our 2015 show will go on sale in June. If you are interested in buying tickets or donating to the cause please contact studio owner, Pink Colleknon-Eggert at 503-842-2084 or email@example.com
christmas toy drive
2014 will mark our first ever, Merry Christmas Spectacular Dance Show & Toy Drive. The show will be held in the Don Whitney Auditorium at Tillamook High School on December 7th at 2:00 in the afternoon. Free family admission with the donation of a new unwrapped toy, or $5 a person without (kids 3 and under get in free). Your afternoon will be filled with wonderful entertainment, free refreshments, and magical surprises, as you get an opportunity to give back to the community.
As her senior project, MacKensi Naegeli is coordinating the toy drive. All the donated toys will be given to local churches and organizations to be distributed within our community this holiday season.
