Will Dance for Kids: Peanut Butter Jam


(KUTV) The Will Dance for Kids Project is dedicated to raising funds for the Kid's Cafe and Backpack Programs at the Utah Food Bank through dance and dance competitions. This project of kids helping kids has been an exciting new concept in the dance community. Over 3,500 dancers have participated from 30 studios across the Wasatch Front in the past four years.

Since it's inception in 2012, $139,500 has been raised which translates into well over $1 million dollars in goods and services to the Utah Food Bank. Over 10,000 lbs of food has been collected which includes over 6,000 jars of peanut butter last year.

On Nov. 7, 2015 WDFKP will host The Peanut Butter Jamm , an All Styles Dance Battle and Battle Class for all ages to benefit the Backpack Program at the Utah Food Bank. 1 in 5 Utah kids doesn't know where their next meal will come from so the need is great. Peanut Butter is a staple in the backpacks every weekend to insure kids have food for the weekends. This will be held at the Gallivan Center starting at 9:00 a.m. Entrance to this event is a jar of peanut butter.

This is the Kick Off Event for the Will Dance For Kids Project Fundraising effort to feed hungry kids in our community and culminates with the WILL DANCE FOR FOOD COMPETITION in March.

Dancers of all ages and abilities can take a Dance Battle Master Class from UDO's Big Chocolate and his crew at 9:00am. Dance battles for Jr's & Sr's begin at 10:15 with amazing judges and great cash prizes. It is a great event for the whole family.

Entrance to the event for everyone is a jar of peanut butter.

Battle Class $10

Battles $10

CHICK FIL A is sponsoring this event and will be giving a FREE MEAL to everyone who brings a jar of peanut butter On Nov. 4, 2015 from 7:00-9:00pm to any of their Utah stores!
