Virtually Red Dress Weekend

benefitting the 10-year anniversary of The Community Food Bank @ The Center

 

Since we can’t hold our typical annual Red Dress Dress Red Dance Party this spring, we’re keeping the spirit alive with a Virtually Red Dress Weekend benefitting the official 10th anniversary of The Community Food Bank @ The Center, on March 20th & 21st, 2021.

Let’s have some fun, while keeping you motivated and your body moving, in preparation for when it is physically safe for us to once again gather together on the dance floor!

We’re inviting all our friends in the Coachella Valley and beyond to choose a physically-distanced activity of your choice and get active while engaging in peer-to-peer fundraising to raise $100,000 for our Community Food Bank! Fitness Influencer Craig Ramsay will guide us during that weekend with virtual warm-ups on both days, lead a Virtually Red Dress 5K Run/Walk, and we will close out the weekend with a virtual Head Over Heels dance party featuring DJ Galaxy, which will be aired on KGAY106.5FM and on TWITCH.TV/KGAY.

Let’s keep the Red Dress spirit alive, paint the valley virtually RED, all while raising awareness for food insecurity and essential funds for your Community Food Bank @ The Center!
