Get your groove on and dance the night away! Only a few more days to gather pledges for RocKSOLID, a 24-hour dance marathon in support of SOLID, the Salt Spring Organization for Life Improvement and Development being held on April 5th & 6th, Mahon Hall, 6pm to 6pm.

To enter the contest and win fabulous prizes raise pledges of $50 or more. Pledge sheets available at SOLID Exchange, Salt Spring Books or from any SOLID board member.

There are amazing prizes on offer for the biggest fundraisers including a chartered flight around Victoria, Port Renfrew and the Cowichan valley with Pharmacist/Pilot and generally charming guy, John Goring of Victoria (value priceless!!). Salty Springs has also generously offered a night’s accommodation in a 1 bedroom ocean view chalet at their lovely resort (value $175), and Marine Wildlife Tours is sure to thrill with a whale watching tour for two (value $200). Another lucky winner will receive pampering with a professional hair cut and styling, with a bottle of shampoo and conditioner thrown in at Aveda Salon in Victoria (value $200).

We also have a fabulous collection of local products and services generously donated by our incredibly supportive business community of Salt Spring that will be drawn on an hourly basis for dance participants, and a sample of these can be seen on our Facebook page.

If you don’t want to dance all night but still want to catch your favourite acts we have a variety of ways you can join us and participate: $40.00 ~ 24 hour pass to come and go as you please, $15.00 ~ 1 – 3 hour pass to come for just a set or two, and $30.00 ~ family rate, 2 adults and children under 12, and this is definitely a family-friendly event.

Sound will be provided by Living Water Media. And there will be lots of yummy treats to sustain you with the concession by CoCo LoCo Lou & catering by Al’s Gourmet Falafel & Fries.

The line up of local talent is astounding and SOLID thanks each and every one of you for showing up and making this fundraiser something special. The talent line up has been finalized.  We hope to see you there!!:
