Alumni of local high schools are encouraged to shine on the dance floor while raising funds for people in need at the First Annual Winter Bling at Richmond Memorial Auditorium, 403 Civic Center Plaza.
The event, presented by Two Chicks with a Dream Productions in partnership with the Richmond Alumni Association, runs from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday.
Co-host Therese Barquet called the event “a drama free charity dance.”
KBLX DJs The World Famous Rick and Russ Show (old school music) is set to perform. The event is partly being held to celebrate Richmond area high school graduates from the 70s, 80s and 90s, Barquet said.
“Many Richmond residents have complained that there isn’t anything fun to do in Richmond for adults,” she said. “Well, now there is.”
She added, “As you are well aware exercise releases endorphins, and what better way to get your exercise on than to dance.”
A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Richmond-based Bay Area Rescue Mission, which provides an array of services to the homeless and hungry.
