“Decades of Dance” Bash Raises Funds for YWCA SHR Programs

Guests clad in bell-bottoms, go-go boots, and Madonna-style bare midriffs boogied, shimmied, Soul-Train-line-danced, and disco’d the night away on Saturday, October 5 at “Decades of Dance.”

Hosted by The Miles Agency, the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, 90s and ’00s music-inspired event held at the Holiday Inn Virginia Beach/Norfolk Conference Center helped raise money for YWCA South Hampton Roads programs supporting domestic and sexual violence survivors.

Olympic Gold Medal Winner and Decades of Dance Celebrity guest, Francena McCorory, helped put a face to issue of domestic violence, reinforcing to attendees that anyone can be a victim.

“I am so pleased to support the YWCA and their commitment to empowering women and promoting social justice in the Hampton Roads community,” McCorory said. “Having grown up in a household where I witnessed domestic violence, I understand the importance of organizations like the YWCA; and I’m so happy to have a role in helping to further their mission.”
