BENEFIT DANCE SET FOR INDEX
January 31, 2013
(INDEX, WA) -- If you do not know what a “Sock Hop” is then it’s a fair bet you are not gray haired, not on any cholesterol lowering meds and are not already qualified for Social Security and/or Medicare.

It’s also a fair bet you have never heard of anyone named Fabian, Dion & The Belmonts, Bobby Rydell or a dance called the Twist.
But for those of you that are hip to all that, plan on having some 1950’s style fun in Index on Saturday Feb. 16.
That’s when a special Valentine’s Sock Hop dance (with 50’s style jukebox music) will be held at the Index School gym.
The dance is from 6pm to 9 pm and is a fund-raiser for the annual Index Arts Festival, which takes place this year on Saturday August 3rd.
There will be dance lessons, hula-hoop fun, door prizes and refreshments. The whole night will be a flat out gas and a groove Daddy-O.
Admission is Adults $10, Family $20.
