Swing for Life Event at UW Raises Donations for Organizations
University of Wyoming students, faculty and families in the community are invited to a Swing for Life event Friday, Jan. 18, from 6-10 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Ballroom. Swing dancing lessons, jazz music and free food will be provided.
Friday Night Fever partners with the Jazz Advocates of Wyoming, the Swing Dance Club and the Associated Students of UW to bring the event to campus. Donations will be collected for the I Love Life and the American Cancer Research Fund organizations.
Swing dancing lessons will be offered by the Swing Club, and UW Jazz ensembles will perform live 1920s-style swing music.
“The overarching idea behind Swing for Life is to bring people together for a common charitable cause,” says Max Harrington of Jazz Advocates of Wyoming.
Friday Night Fever also will show the movie “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” Jan. 18 in the Wyoming Union Family Room at 6:30, 9 and 11:30 p.m.
