Put on your dancin' shoes and get ready to boog-a-loo till you pass out for a good cause this Friday night!

The past two events have raised over $50,000 for Riley's and this year's goal is to hit the $15,000 mark. As with the previous dance marathon's, this year's event is open to the public regardless of whether your a Mater Dei family or not.

There will also be silent auctions with items donated from businesses around the community, games, karoke, dancing, and even a bounce house.

This year's event, taking place inside the Mater Dei Gymnasium from 7:00 - 11:30 pm, will be dedicated to Sam Featherstone, the young man from Newburgh who lost his battle with  brain cancer earlier this year. Sam's parents will be in attendance Friday night and are scheduled to speak at 7:45 pm.

If you can't make it, but would still like to make a donation, you can mail a check, payable to "Mater Dei Dance Marathon" to the address below:

Mater Dei High School
1300 Harmony Way
Evansville, IN 47720
