The Never Miss Dance team raised $1,690 for Roswell Park Cancer Institute at the club’s hosted annual 50 Shades of Pink Breast Cancer Awareness show on October 27. Tickets were $15 dollars for students and $20 for faculty. The event featured a fashion show as well as many local dance and singing performances. All proceeds went to the RPCI.
The president of the Never Miss Dance team, Nautica McCoy, who is also a resident assistant in Trinity Hall, strongly encouraged staff and faculty to donate, via email or face to face, to the cause, even if they were unable to attend the event, in an effort to get more staff and faculty engaged in student operated events. McCoy’s networking skills proved to be very beneficial and, with the help of the other members of the club, fundraising proved to be successful as well. The club also hosted a bake sale for two days. Members baked anything from cookies to peach cobbler and sold the goods at low cost in order to attract traffic and promote the show. It’s safe to say that the Never Miss Dance Team dominated the “hall attacks,” and did so by demonstrating one of Hilbert’s core values—service.
