Interact dance rakes in cash for charity

On February 8, 2013, more than 500 individuals filled Newark Memorial High School in anticipation for Ultraviolet, an annual charity dance hosted by Interact areas 4, 5, and 6. Planning for the dance began several months in advance and the event raised over $3000 of pure profit for Interact club’s cause.

Right after school, volunteers rushed to Newark Memorial high School to set up for the dance—most were there from 3 pm until 11 pm. Ultraviolet was also a blacklight dance, so volunteers spent their time setting up several props. The result: decorations worth of three hours filled with non-stop spectacular strobe lights, thumping bass, and glow-in-the-dark balloons.

“Ultraviolet was the result of so many officers working really, really hard to make this happen,” said Junior David Kang, president of Irvington Interact club. “I think that ultimately, it was definitely a success. Shoutout to officers—thank you so much for all your hard work!”
