Danville  Hope Enterprises will host their second annual "Dance the Night Away" event from 6 to 8 pm on Wednesday, October 23, 2019, at The Barn at Frosty Valley in Danville, PA. 

The event will raise funds to support individuals living with intellectual disabilities in central Pennsylvania. 

Modeled after ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” thel event pairs community leaders from Columbia, Montour, Union and Snyder counties with Hope Enterprises individuals in a fun and friendly dance competition.


In Williamsport, the dance event has annually included 200 guests, over 20 sponsors, and raised a total of $14,000. 

“Our Dance the Night Away encourages members of the community to recognize a person’s abilities versus their disabilities,” said Robert Labatch, President & CEO of Hope Enterprises.


Funds raised through this event will go to support the Hope Enterprises’ Foundation and independent living, community support and participation, and integrated employment. 

Ticket prices for the 2019 Dance the Night Away begin at $25 and can be purchased online at www.hopeability.org/dance or at Hope's office on 543 Church Street in Danville. Sponsorship opportunities range from $150 to $500.
