As music provides the backdrop for dancing, games and activities, the kids at Riley Children’s Hospital were awaiting a major donation that Center Grove High School makes every year. On April 12th, from 5pm to 11pm, Riley Club carried on that tradition.

“We were trying to raise money to help the families at the Riley Children’s Hospital by standing for those who can’t at this 6-hour event,” said Kaia Hunter ‘20, a member of the club. While the name indicates 6 hours of non-stop dancing, it is not quite the perfect description. Along with music, attendees of the event enjoyed lots of food, games, activities, and a drawing to win a prize.

The admission cost of $10 included 10 tickets to enter for the drawing, and with each person, got the Riley Club that much closer to their goal. Last year, the event raised $12,581.36, and based on that value, this year’s goal was $13,000; Riley Club ended up raising $11,647.63. As the event’s motto states, it is all For the Kids.
