Dance Celebration

Oh what a night! Glen Sanders Mansion was beautifully decorated for Nick’s Fight’s 3rd Annual Dance to be Healed Celebration!

Angie Silipigno, her girls, and Courtney Hill did an amazing job decorating the tables with red and pink leis, hats lined with hearts, fun eyeglasses, purple beads, with votives and mirrors provided by the staff. Red lights lit up the walls and photos of our families dancing from previous dances lined the room.

The children and young adults looked beautiful and handsome. The little gals were very excited to get their hair done by Courtney and Jackie of Pixie Salon and makeup done by Ebony Muniz and Autumn Wright, and they twirled in their dresses and fancy shoes. Family photos were taken by Elizabeth Fox Photography. Many memories were made.

For the third year in a row, Mo Haskins of Cool Cat DJ played music that kept the kids on their toes. Cameron knew every word to each song and danced around the floor interacting with everyone!

Ali was adorable! He is Nick’s Warrior for the run this year on September 30! Mark you calendars! His sisters Sara and Asma volunteered with Nick’s Round Table along with many other teen volunteers.

This table was packed all night!

Little Lucas danced all night and learned the sprinkler and mashed potato dance. Abby and Regan were inseparable. I loved seeing Brittney, Kacey, and Kendra–incredible young adults giving back despite their journeys.

I enjoyed talking to all the families and am grateful many were able to come and feel the love of family. For those who couldn’t come, you were missed, but we will see you at upcoming events. When I peered around the room, I saw children at the craft table, others were at the Open Box Photobooth sponsored by Christina Primero. They ate quickly and stayed on the dance floor. Parents, Melodies’ staff, friends, and extended family connecting and supporting one another, enjoyed their time together. This is my favorite event!

Thank you to all the generous sponsors: Maddies’ Mark who sponsored all the families, Play it Foreward for the photobooth, Maria, Lucien, and Nancy from Glen Sanders Mansion for doing a beautiful job, Elizabeth Fox Photography, and Out of the Box Photobooth.
