McConnell School of Dance Student's Association organizes fundraisers throughout the season to for the benefit of our dancers.
General Division Fundraising
Fundraising is optional for all General Division Dancers.
Funds raised for the General Division go towards group expesnes such as the Jackie White Lyon's Scholarship, MSDSA supplies, studio water cooler & water supply, etc. Yearly fundraisers may include "Mom's Pantry Product" Sales, Plant Sale Fundraisers, Raffles and Draws.
Performance Division Fundraising
Fundraising for Performance Division is required for all performance students, unless they opt out of fundraising subsidy. Funds raised through Performance Division go towards our performance division expenses for travel subsidy, show costumes, workshops, sound and lighting equipment. Funds raised in performance division may be for indivual or group expenses and are determined each season, based on the needs of the organization and dancers in the division.
Yearly fundraisers may include St. Patrick's Fest' Fundraiser, Raffle's and Draws, Car Washes, Movie Nights, and more.
Competitive Division Fundraising
There is no fundraising for Competitive Division. Competitive Irish dance is an individual activity which does not benefit the community or promote culture so therefore does not qualify for funraising under our non-profit status.
