Boca Raton Children's Museum's Salsa Night Gives A Great Reason To Get Up And Dance
One event will have participants dancing to their own beat as they attempt to raise thousands of dollars for charity.
The Boca Raton Childrenâ€™s Museum is hosting a Salsa Night Aug. 5 as part of the Boca Chamber of Commerceâ€™s Boca Festival Days, in which for-profits partner with nonprofits to create an event benefiting the nonprofit.
Professional salsa dancer Andrea Clover, who runs DanceCrush Kids, will instruct participants in salsa dancing with her partner Jenco Danger.
All of the money raised will go to support the Boca Raton Childrenâ€™s Museum, said event sponsor Eliot Popper, a financial advisor at Morgan Stanley.
â€śThe museum is really trying to raise money to make it a focal point [in the community],â€ť Popper said.
With the money raised, the museum hopes to buy two new items: a water table and a storytelling tent. The water table, which will cost about $25,000, will teach kids how water works through locks, dams and bridges. The tent will cost about $10,000, Popper said.
The event starts at 6 p.m. and will also have a disc jockey, as well as food, wine and beer. Tickets are $30 per person and $50 per couple at the door.
