at the Stevenson Dance Invitational, which was held on Friday, December
On September 28th, the Varsity Dance Team hosted its third annual
Kick-a-Thon! Since 2006, the squad has volunteered with the
Boys & Girls Club of Lake County organizing dance clinics for
K-8 students in after-school programs and summer camps. For
that reason, they chose to partner with the Club for a fun fall fundraiser.
dancers invited high school and community kickers to join them in
a kick line at halftime of the Lake Forest vs Libertyville varsity
football game - their goal: to kick 100 times FOR KIDS. The
team, and over one hundred other kickers, presented a $5,000 check
to the Boys & Girls Club of Lake County during the halftime
event. An additional $300 was collected the night of the event yielding
a total donation of $5,300 for 2012.
