Dancing for a Good Cause – Dance FTK 2023


Sofia Colorado, Staff Writer

FTHS just recently held yet another successful fundraising event! Dance FTK, also known as Dancing For The Kids, is a collaborative Dance-athon event dedicated to giving back to children battling cancer through the Embrace Kids Foundation. This foundation is organized to support families of children battling cancer as well as other blood disorders. With the partnership of Embrace Kids Foundation, organizers Logan and Grant Feldman, the planning committee, and our school has been able to donate thousands of dollars to children in need! After all donations are made and collected, this money then gets delivered to any family in need of financial support!

This year was DFTK’s fourth annual host here at Freehold Township. Not only does the proceeds go to a heartwarming cause, it also ensures fun for anyone in attendance with delicious treats, games, prizes, and best of all one big dance party! After all the hard work, dedication, and energy put into ensuring the success of this fundraiser, the total amount raised that night was…. $21,165. Congratulations to all participants of this event for such an incredible donation! 

If you are one who jumps at any opportunity for donating and especially loves a good dance party then this fundraiser is perfect for you! The fundraising committee is currently looking for new members for next year’s event! For more information you can check your grade level google classroom for regular updates!
