 Dance the Night Away

     Do you want to "hear some of that old time rock & roll" or maybe you feel "like a room without a roof because you're Happy."   If so, then come to the Or Shalom Dance Party on January 10, 2015.  Tickets are $20 per person or $10 for  kids under 17. If you purchase your ticket(s) in advance from Brown Paper Tickets, you'll receive two free raffle tickets  and one free drink ticket at the door for each party goer.
     Not sure you can make it? No problem, you can buy an admission ticket at the door on January 10th and still get a free drink ticket, but you'll have to buy your raffle tickets.   
     Light snacks will be provided.  Wine and non-alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase (after the first free drink).  We have some great raffle prizes lined up, but you must be present to win, and there will be a photo booth.  So what's not to like?  
     Get your tickets today for the Or Shalom Dance Party, January 10, 2015, 7:30pm to 11pm at 625 Brotherhood Way.
