Dancing into Dreamland is Back!
WOW, another great fundraiser! If you don’t already know, Dancing Into Dreamland is an annual fundraiser dance competition sponsored by the FOD’s or Friends of Dreamland Ballroom, the all volunteer non-profit that oversee’s the restoration of the ballroom. The fundraiser’s goal is to raise enough money to sustain itself from year to year, to raise awareness about, and to make small improvements to this awesomely cool, spiritually uplifting, massive, historically significant, ballroom atop the Arkansas Flag and Banner building in Little Rock, Arkansas. The long range goal is to acquire an elevator so everyone can experience its awesomeness.
In 2009 FOD was founded. It has been a 4-year love affair that is not for the faint of heart. I am happy to say the start-up days are over. I believe FOD is halfway to their elevator goal. The reasons being; more and more people are learning about and falling in love with Dreamland, and statistically speaking it takes about 10 years to achieve a new business’s goal.
The attendance this year to DID2013 was larger than ever and there were people from all over the country. Maybe next year Oprah Winfrey will attend our event and decide an elevator for FOD is in her giving plan. I mean if you’re going to dream.Dream Big! Dreamland Big!
