Food SCAREcity Costume Dance at Watts Hall
Thomaston — Dancing 4 Fun’s Saturday Benefit Dance Group invites the Midcoast to dress up and boogie down for a good cause this Halloween. A chem-free Food SCAREcity Costume Dance is set for Saturday, Oct. 27 from 7:30 to 11 p.m. at the downtown Watts Hall, Main Street/Route 1.
In addition to a great range of dance tunes spun by DJs Aimee Moffitt-Mercer and Dan Miller, there will be a silent auction of all kinds of items and certificates; and not one but two tables of delicious homemade baked goods.
Suggested donation at the door is $10, and attendees are encouraged to also bring nonperishable food donations. All proceeds from the All 4 One and One 4 All event will go to the Thomaston Inter-Church Fellowship Food Pantry and the Area Interfaith Outreach Food Pantry in Rockland.
Both food pantries were founded by local faith-based communities and have been serving Knox County for two decades or more. The economic downturn of recent years has meant the need is even greater. The Thomaston Inter-Church Fellowship Food Pantry operates out of Watts Hall and currently provides food for about 300 people. The AIO pantry serves an average of 315 families each month, about 650 to 700 people. Both pantries are finding it harder and harder to keep their shelves full.
Both organizations will have food tables at the dance. Silent auction and food table donations from the larger public are welcomed, as are Halloween celebrants of all ages. For information about how to donate to the All 4 One & One 4 All silent auction and food tables and for more information on both food pantries and food scarcity, visit dancing4fun.org or call 354-0931.
