Many organizations have already kicked off their 2011 United Way campaign, and the dance mob will serve as the campaign kickoff for the community. In addition to the fun dance number, mob participants will also create awareness of the issues United Way is addressing in the local community by showcasing posterboard signs which list out the various issues. Also present will be signs encouraging community members to “give,” “advocate,” and “volunteer” as a means to demonstrate their commitment to LIVE UNITED in Waukesha County.
    The public is invited to join the growing list of dance mob participants. Those interested in participating are encouraged to visit United Way in Waukesha County’s website, YouTube page or Facebook page to access the how-to video, which features a local volunteer walking through the choreography. A dress rehearsal is scheduled for Tuesday, September 20 at the Frame Park pavilion from 5 to 6 p.m. To RSVP for the dance mob and schedule a LIVE UNITED t-shirt pick up, contact Chrissy Olson at United Way in Waukesha County at (262) 547-8459 ext. 112 or
