Donated towards $1019.39 Goal
June 8, 2017
Our clients LOVE to dance. There are spontaneous dance parties here all the time. You could say our clients have been training for this challenge their entire lives. Music is used every day to keep our clients active and laughing. For every $5 raised, our seniors will dance for one second PLUS a bonus dance move for every $100 raised!
Update! Here are some River House seniors rocking out to celebrate funds raised to date! They’re even performing one of their signature “Bonus Dance Moves” for every $100 raised!
We are looking to raise $1,019.39 to fund a sound system for River House. This money will go toward the purchase of two Bluetooth speakers, an Amazon Echo, and a Spotify premium family subscription to keep the music playing for our clients living with age-related illnesses like Alzheimer’s. Doctors have found that musical rhythmic beats create cues for memories, speech patterns, and can reach already stored verbal knowledge. Plus dance parties are incredibly fun!
- An indoor Bluetooth wireless speaker – $303
- An outdoor wireless speaker – $176.39
- Amazon Echo – $180
- Spotify Premium Family, 2 year subscription – $360
Cost of a sound system for seniors: $1,019.39
