The Sanford Area Society of Shaggers will host an event featuring beach music band the Band of Oz to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Eastern North Carolina and other local charities on Saturday, March 23 at the Dennis Wicker Civic Center in Sanford.
Club member Terry Harrington tells the Rant that this is the 30th year the club of dance enthusiasts has raised money for Make-A-Wish, which grants wishes to critically ill children. In that time, SASS has given the charity more than $400,000.
Tickets can be obtained for $20 in advance at the Tramway Diner or by contacting Harrington at (919) 770-5933. Tickets are $25 at the door.
Doors open at 6 p.m., and music begins at 7 p.m. In addition to dancing, there will be a 50/50 drawing, heavy hours d’ouevres, and a silent auction. While alcoholic beverages will not be sold, attendees are welcome to bring their own drinks.
SASS also accepts donations by mail at P.O. Box 1785, Sanford, NC, 27332.
