    FBLA Dance

    Hanging out with friends? Check. Contributing to a good cause? Check. Having a great time? Check!



    For those who attended FBLA’s Miles of Smiles Charity Dance Social, they got to do all this and more. The Future Business Leaders of America hosted a dance to profit babies and young children with cleft lip for their annual community service project.



    The Miles of Smiles Charity Dance Social was held at the Arcadia Community Center on Fri., Jan. 8, from 7-11 pm. The dance was held in a large room complete with a DJ, roomy dance floor and even a disco ball. Tables were festooned with balloons and there were plenty of delicious snacks and refreshing drinks. Students danced all night to popular tunes spun by an awesome DJ and could lounge outside if they felt the need to take a break. Everyone seemed to be having a great time out on the dance floor as most of the tables were left empty, except to place shoes, jackets and purses. Sophomore Wendy Wang says, “I thought the dance was really fun and a good way to help the children pay for their surgeries”.



    Close to the end of the night, FBLA Community Project Service Director, junior Lily Chen, announced that enough money had been raised to pay for 3-4 surgeries. Although the surgeries are only about 45 minutes, and around $250, some children cannot afford the operation and must live their whole life with this painful and embarrassing defect. Sometimes people with cleft lip that do not get it corrected, most in third-world countries, have problems speaking and eating properly, become shunned from society, or are unable get a good education or job because of it. FBLA really made a huge difference in 3-4 children’s lives and that’s what attracted Lily Chen to this cause. She says, “A lot of charities out there do great things to put a smile on someone's face such as soup kitchens, donations, and so on, but what really stood out to me about this cause is that it actually puts a literal smile on someone's face and that seems really special to me - to be a part of a child's smile”. Not only did the FBLA put on a great dance, but they also contributed tremendously to a great cause, helping children lead happier, healthier lives.



    And for those who were unable to attend this dance social, keep your calendars open for Fri., Jan. 22. Arcadia ’s Key Club and Interact Club are co-hosting their own charity social, also at the Community Center, from 5:30-11 pm. Tickets are $20 and profits will benefit Key Club and the White Mountain Apaches so be sure to attend!

The dance was held in a large room complete with a DJ, roomy dance floor and even a disco ball. Tables were festooned with balloons and there were plenty of delicious snacks and refreshing drinks. Students danced all night to popular tunes spun by an awesome (reword) DJ and could lounge outside if they felt the need to take a break. Everyone seemed to be having a great time out on the dance floor as most of the tables were left empty, except to place shoes, jackets and purses (awk sentence). Sophomore Wendy Wang says, “I thought the dance was really fun and a good way to help the children pay for their surgeries”.
