#ThrowbackThursday Dance

Thursday, October 19, 2017 - 8:00pm to 11:00pm

The Upsilon Chapter of Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc. will host a dance party, aimed to fundraise for our national philanthropy, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This hospital provides medical treatment to many children across the United States and other countries every year, with no cost to the children's families. No child is ever denied treatment based on race, religion, or the family's ability to pay. This year we have chosen to have a 80s, 90s, and early 2000s themed dance, in order to fundraise for the hospital. All proceeds from this event will go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
