Dance-a-thon at Adelphi to support mission trip

A group of students from the Catholic Campus Ministry chapters at Adelphi and Hofstra universities have organized a dance-a-thon, Just Dance for Ecuador, to raise money for a service project.  Dancers will hit the floor from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Thursday  at Adelphi’s University Center Ballroom.

Funds from the event will go toward  a winter break service trip to Misahualli, Ecuador. The Catholic Campus Ministry is trying to raise $30,000 to take 15 students to work on a service project between Jan. 5 and 14. The Rockville Centre Diocese is also involved.

The dance event will feature live music, and several Garden City-area businesses have donated items for a raffle.

For further information, contact Matthew Rudolph in the Adelphi Catholic Campus Ministry office at 516-877-3116.
