Swing Dance Returns To Benefit Active Adults

SANATOGA PA – The popular “World War II Swing Dance” returns April 7 (2017; Friday) from 8-11 p.m. inside Sunnybrook Ballroom, 50 Sunnybrook Rd., as a fund-raiser to benefit programs for older adults conducted by the TriCounty Active Adult Center. The doors open at 7 p.m.

Members of the Swing Fever Orchestra (above) and its USO Canteen Show are scheduled to perform. The band offers dancers and listeners alike the experience of Big Band sounds of the ’40s. They’ll feature the music of Duke Ellington, Glen Miller, the Dorsey Brothers, among others.

An optional all-American buffet dinner will be available before the dance. Reservations are required, and the cost is an additional $27 per person for this delicious meal. Dinner guests should arrive at 6 p.m. The buffet includes vegetable crudites, mesclun greens, penne primavera, chicken francaise, sliced shoulder filet, garlic mashed potatoes, green bean almondine, assorted mini-desserts, coffee, tea and soda. Dinner seating is limited.

A cash bar will be available at the “Officer’s Club.”

As in previous years, all veterans will be honored during an intermission. Those attending are encouraged to dress in 1940s costumes and Allied military uniforms, and participate in a contest during the evening.

Tickets cost $25 per person, with assigned seating for 8 people at each table and all seats reserved. Checks can be made payable to TRAAC Swing Dance, and mailed to Sue McIntyre at the TriCounty Active Adult Center, 288 Moser Road, Suite 1, Pottstown PA 19464. Groups that wish to be seated together should send their checks with all names in the party.
