This is Springville, where purple reigns and people pull together to support the greater good. On Saturday, March 25, hop in your Little Red Corvette (or whatever it is you drive) and head to the annual Cordelian Club Dance to benefit Bertrand Chaffee Hospital. The 21 and over event will be held at the Springville Fire Hall from 7 to 11 p.m. This year’s theme is “Let’s Go Crazy! An 80s Dance Tribute to Prince.”

“The theme for the dance is chosen by our vice president/dance chair, who is Kelly Baker this year,” explained Amy Wnuk, Cordelian Club president. “The 80s /Prince theme is back by popular demand and with him passing away, she felt it was a sign that we needed to have another 80s dance.”

The Cordelian Club has been around since 1937, and according to Wnuk, today, “is a group of approximately 35 women from our community who meet monthly to plan a yearly dance to raise money for Bertrand Chaffee Hospital.” Members of the club are invited/nominated by other members. (If anyone is interested in becoming a member, they should speak to any current Cordelian member.)

All the money raised at the dance is donated to BCH.  Money from past events has been used to pay for various medical equipment.

Ready to bust out that purple satin suit, the neon hair bows, the fishnets, that huge can of Aqua Net? Be sure to come dressed to the nines in your 80s garb, as there will be contests for the Best Dressed Prince and Hair Band Rockers.

“People should attend the dance because it will be so much fun!” said Wnuk. “People really seem to like dressing up for the themed dances and it is great to see how creative people are with their costumes!”

Music will be provided by Tailor Made DJ, who will be donating his services. “He will be playing 80s music and music videos,” noted Wnuk.

Beer, wine and hors d’oeuvres will be included with admission, and guests can also take part in the basket raffle with great prizes. Tickets are $35 ech, available at BCH, Anything Printed, from any Cordelian Club member or at the door.

Don’t miss your chance to travel back in time without a DeLorean. Grab your tickets and your friends and get ready to party like it’s 1999!
