The Fighting Children’s Cancer Foundation gets help each year from Theater Dance Center and this year is no different! They recently hosted their annual gala and were successful in raising money for FCCF.

 “The Gala is a performance where our competitive dancers debut their new pieces for family, friends and the community, to raise awareness and funds to help support FCCF,” Millene Michel, owner of TDC said.

Over the years, the fundraising gala has raised over $100,000 for various charities, including Stand Up to Cancer and NJ Veterans. The Stand Up to Cancer donation was made in honor of both Michel and the schools ballet mistress both being survivors of breast cancer.

Dancers represent the towns of Mount Olive, Long Valley, and Stanhope.
