If you need a way to blow off
some steam Saturday, why not try dancing to live music for a great cause.
The band Dance Manifesto has planned a special performance beginning at 10 p.m. Aug. 24 at Mahalo Cove, 46300 McClellan Way, in Sterling that will benefit the Leesburg and Sterling Volunteer Fire Departments.
Dance Manifesto – which plays high-energy pop music, combing popular tunes now on the radio and in clubs with the occasional classic dance song – decided do something for some of the local fire departments that protect their families.
The band chose to honor the fire departments and perform for their benefit because of the critical need for donations to the fire and rescue departments in Loudoun County. Dance Manifesto bassist Dave Dulansey has two young boys that love the Fire Department and says,
“In addition to watching out for our safety, Leesburg Fire and Rescue has enriched the lives of our children,” said Dance Manifesto bassist Dave Dulansey, who has two young boys who love the fire department. “Safety Day is always a big event that families look forward to. Where else can you get in a real mobile command unit or sit behind the wheel of an OshKosh Airport Firetruck? And then there’s Santa Claus on his ‘big red sleigh’ – we let the kids stay up late for that!”
Mahalo Cove will give a donation to the fire and departments, and offer special pricing and raffles during the event. Among the raffle prizes is a 3-day/2-night trip to Las Vegas for two with $500 in casino comps. Attendees must be 21 to enter to event.
“Thanks to them for all they do,” said co-owner Brian Jenkins. “They’ve always been a great help and we love having them in the establishment. We hope that this can be an annual or semi-annual event!”Mahalo Cove
Donations can also be made directly to the Leesburg Volunteer Fire Department and the Sterling Volunteer Fire Department.
