Dancing in a Winter Wonderland at The Gardens

January 31 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Beat the winter blues and help our seniors in the area. The Gardens Independent Living and Your PAL Pro are hosting a Winter dance for area seniors and a fundraiser for the Senior Foundation of the Ozarks.  We’re inviting the residents of the Gardens, family and friends, and seniors in Springfield and the surrounding areas. Your PAL Pro will also be offering free rides to the dance for any local seniors who would like to attend.

Enjoy music from the 40s and 50s, raffles and door prizes, and free refreshments. Don’t forget to bring some cash for a “Dollar Dance”!

RSVP by calling 417-889-7600.

The event is free, but there are four ways to help support Senior Foundation of the Ozarks at the event.

1) Sponsor a table. We have tables available for sponsorship at the dance. The cost is $25/table and each sponsor is allowed to bring a “winter themed” 8.5 X11 sign to place on their table, along with business cards/brochures. Donations for sponsored tables should be made directly to the Senior Foundation of the Ozarks.

Please note in the comments that the donation is for “Table sponsorship, Dancing in a Winter Wonderland at The Gardens”. Items for your table may be delivered between 3-5pm on January 31st or you may drop them off at the Gardens at any time.

2) Purchase a Snowflake. Snowflakes may be purchased at the front desk of the Gardens Independent Living. Snowflakes are available in advance or the day of the dance, for “cash only” and will cost:

$1 – White Snowflake

$5 – Blue Snowflake

$10 – Silver Snowflake

Buy as many as you’d like! The snowflakes will be hung as decoration at the event with the name of the donor clearly visible.

3) Donate an item for the raffle. We are accepting donations for a raffle that will be held the night of the dance. Once we receive all the items, we’ll determine the raffle ticket price. All donations will be labeled with the name of your business and announced when the winner is drawn. Raffle items can be brought to the Gardens Independent Living any time before January 30th.

4) Dollar Dance! We’ll have “Dollar Dance” opportunities during the event where attendees can pay to dance with volunteers…we probably need a few more guys for this but will gladly accept any and all volunteers. Let us know if you are willing to “rent yourself out” for this fun activity or maybe you can bring along someone who will!

Free rides are provided by Your Pal Pro. Availability is limited so call 417-883-0043 now to schedule.
