Time is moving on and our Foundation's 12th Annual Dinner Dance is only nine weeks away. With the Christmas and New Year holidays almost upon us, February 9th will be here before we know it. Now is a good time to make your arrangements to attend this gala event and show your support of our Foundation's programs that make life better for our FCSR PromiseKids.
I can't think of a better way to entertain your clients, board members, executive staff, employees and friends than by hosting a company table at our Dinner Dance. Research has shown over and over again that employees of socially responsible companies are more loyal, trustworthy and likely to keep their jobs. Show them what you're company stands for and invite your staff to participate in this hugely successful, fun and rewarding event that helps further Corporate Social Responsibility in Poland. See details below on our new Dinner Dance Poster.
Our PromiseKids have been working hard the past two months to present the best show ever for your and your guests pleasure on February 9th!
The task of getting all forty performers together at the same time, and in the same place, is a real challenge for Meg and Basia. Our kids are scattered among three different schools and travel during the winter months is tenuous at best. Meg and Basia not only pick up the performers, but drive them all home right to their doorsteps after the rehearsals. For the kids it means sacrificing their free time after school and long rehearsals into the evening hours, over a four month period.
A little known fact is that most of the kids have never met each other before the rehearsals and as we all know, dancing with strangers can be a little intimidating. However, Basia and Meg do a great job of building wonderful bonds of friendship among the kids and by the time they come to Warsaw, they are one big, happy family!
Below, please take time to look at the rehearsal photos and trailer. This is the BEFORE - we can't wait for you to see the AFTER on February 9th!!
