Event description
A family centered weekend of dance with some of your favorite dancers... all benefiting Alicia Keys' non-profit "Keep A Child Alive."

About this Event

"The October Benefit" was founded by Chris Bidorini in 2017 with 3 goals : (1) engage a variety of communities in charitable giving; (2) increase HIV/AIDS awareness in Connecticut; and (3) raise money for Alicia Keys' non-profit "Keep A Child Alive." Since its inception, "The October Benefit" has raised $19,000 and engaged hundreds of people in charitable giving and HIV/AIDS awareness. This year "The October Benefit" is back and bigger than ever. As always, all proceeds will be donated to "Keep A Child Alive," whose mission is to: "realize the end of AIDS for children and families, by combating the physical, social and economic impacts of HIV."

This year's event is focused on dance and families and will be held Saturday October 19th and Sunday October 20th, 2019. (Please note different venue locations.)
