SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Food Bank received a hefty donation Saturday, delivered due to the efforts of hundreds of dancers.
More than 1,000 dancers between the ages of 5 and 18 competed in the “Will Dance for Food” event, and proceeds from donations and prize drawings at the event were donated to the Utah Food Bank’s programs for children.
The donations total more than $30,000, and the event was the work of dancers from 18 different studios and various sponsors. The Utah Food Bank serves more than 221,000 meals to children every year.
