Say thank you to our troops at dance fundraiser

Interested in a fun and easy way to provide some comfort and support to our servicemen and women overseas, especially with the holidays just around the corner? All you need to do is come to the "Socks For Soldiers" dance and fundraiser on Saturday, Sept. 10. All profits from this event will be donated to "Operation Christmas Stocking" which sends Christmas stockings to our troops filled with small, everyday products that they treasure and that we take for granted. 

This fundraiser will be held at The Lakewood Elks Lodge, 24350 Center Ridge Road in Westlake. The event will start with a free line dance lesson from 7- 8 p.m. The dance will immediately follow from 8 p.m. until 11:30 p.m. The cost is $8 per person at the door and will include: DJ, line dance lesson, table munchies, large dance floor, cash bar, a 50/50 raffle, a special "donations" raffle, festive party atmosphere and fundraising fun!

The featured music for this dance will be: a combo of a "sock hop" and songs related to the season, in addition to our regular dance music that will cover the 1960s to present day to include: classic rock 'n' roll, R&B, line dances, disco, slow dances and some country. This hall has a large hardwood dance floor and will be tastefully decorated for the event! It will offer a fun and safe atmosphere to enjoy yourself, make some new friends; all while knowing that you are supporting our troops.

In line with the name for this dance, "Socks for Soldiers," we ask that you consider donating a new package of men's crew socks (solid white or solid black). The socks, along with donations of playing cards, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, shaving supplies, snacks and other treats, will help fill Christmas stockings for our deployed troops and will earn raffle tickets for the special "donations" raffle. Monetary donations will also be gratefully accepted.

For more information, or to forward musical requests, contact Greg at or 440-665-6166. Come out, dance and be a part of an event that is sure to be great time and one that you remember fondly for a long time!
