The county’s biggest dance party returns to the Tally Ho Theater on Saturday night, offering a great night out while also raising money to support the Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter.
It’s the third edition of Dance-a-Palooza, which is organized by David Harbour.
He was looking for a way to have a positive impact on the community, but wasn’t very interested in a typical fundraiser. “I didn’t want to do a golf tournament and I’m terrible at bowling,” he said. “A lot of people like to dance but don’t want to drive all the way to D.C. to some night club.”
The Tally Ho provides a fun, safe environment to boogie close to home, he said.
“Basically, we’re turning the Tally Ho Theater into Studio 54. It’s going to be the best dance music of all time from every decade,” he said.
It will be the second time the dance party has supported LAWS, which, since 1984, has worked to help women and children fleeing domestic violence. Today, the organization operates an emergency shelter and provides counseling, legal services, support groups, advocacy, and community outreach. LAWS also operates The Resourceful Woman thrift store in Leesburg and runs the Loudoun Child Advocacy Center, dedicated to child victims of abuse and/or neglect.
In addition to the $10 entry fees ($20 for a VIP pass), funds will be raised through a raffle of nearly two dozen items—ranging from golf outings to Redskins memorabilia. Dance-a-Palooza II, held in October, raised $10,000 for the Loudoun First Responders Foundation.
Dj Kurtiz will be spinning the tunes from 7 to 11 p.m. April 6.
