Seeds of Love, Light and Hope

We are Club TDC from The Dance Centre by Heidi Glynias in Rocky River, celebrating 33 years of dance education! This team of dancers not only performs throughout the school year, but they also focus their talents and leadership skills on community and giving back, culminating with a benefit performance in which all proceeds are donated to a charity.
This season, we have selected Prayers From Maria as the recipient of our volunteering and fundraising efforts. Prayers From Maria is a local non-profit organization built out of love and compassion for children who suffer, and those who have died, from deadly brain tumors. Their mission is to provide childhood cancer patients with the support they desperately need, by reversing the tragic lack of funding and fueling the most meaningful brain cancer research for kids.

Our mission at TDC is to develop great dancers and human beings!  Through our benefit performance and fundraising, TDC students learn about a new organization each year that we select to support.  Awareness of the organization's needs, speaking to others about the cause, and successfully raising funds empowers our students through their efforts to help others.  TDC students experience firsthand how they can directly impact positive change in their community!  

This GoFundMe is a large part of our fundraising efforts that is being launched on #GivingTuesday!

In addition to this campaign, our students helped at the Prayers from Maria Sunflower Field, volunteered at the PFM booth during the IX Center Christmas Connection, and they are currently raising money by selling Gratitude Cards (through December 18) during this Giving Season!

You can help us reach our goal by donating and/or sharing this link to our cause!

Follow us through the upcoming months as we work to bring awareness to this wonderful organization and as we prepare for our benefit show that will take place on April 30th, 2022! We hope you can join us!
Thank you in advance for your support whether financially, for helping us spread the word by sharing this information, and/or donating time for this cause!
