Merry Christmas!
I hope you are all getting ready for a nice holiday break! Just a reminder that this is the perfect time of year to send home Hearts & Hands tickets with your dancers to sell to all their friends & family! These tickets are just $1 and the top prize is 2 TICKETS ANYWHERE JET BLUE FLIES IN THE USA! There are also lots of other great prizes too!
The dancers can also win lots of great prizes for selling tickets, getting in kind donations, sponsors or selling ads! We appreciate your help and support as we work together to fight childhood hunger in our state. Every dollar we raise is worth $7.35 to the Kid's Cafe & Backpack Program at the Utah Food Bank! Together we can make a difference in the lives of hungry kids.
Thanks for your support!  Have a blessed Christmas season!
Love, Penny
