This gala fund raiser was the kick off event for the “Save the Bandstand Floor Campaign and was titled Dancing With the Bandstand Stars. It was held at The Enterprise Center at 4548 Market street in Philadelphia, PA. which is the original studio where American Bandstand was filmed. Attendees included Regulars as well as a host of Original Philly American Bandstand dancers. The event was a dance extravaganza and everyone thoroughly enjoyed seeing each other again. The goal of the evening was to help raise $25,000. towards the $50,000. floor renovation costs.

The group stopped dancing long enough to pose for this photo (7/15/2009)
