Orange Ribbons For Jaime (ORFJ) will host its second annual nationwide Dance-A-Thon in honor of Jaime Guttenberg from October 1 to 23. Jaime was one of 17 students killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14. Following the tragedy, Jaime’s parents, Fred and Jennifer Guttenberg, formed the nonprofit organization to honor their daughter by supporting causes dear to her and to causes that work to end gun violence.
Because one of Jaime’s greatest passions was dance, ORFJ created a nationwide Dance-A-Thon to raise money for programs that the organization supports. This includes funding a college scholarship created in Jaime’s honor, as well as a new initiative they are launching to help support families affected by gun violence.
The event will kick off with in-person dance parties at dance schools and other locations across the country from October 1 to 23, culminating with a Virtual Dance Party on October 23, from 7 to 9 p.m. All registered participants will have access to the Virtual Dance Party, which will feature special guests including Alyssa Milano, Ben Stiller, Bradley Whitford, Tara Strong, Brandon Jenner, Jessica Kirson, and more! There will be prize incentives for the largest overall fundraiser, who will receive 4 Billy Joel tickets and a $1,000 gift card.
Dance studios and organizations across the nation will host a Dance-A-Thon as an initiative to raise funds and awareness for ORFJ. Registration costs $25 per participant. Click here for more information.
