The City of Alexandria’s 44th annual Toys for Tots Benefit Square Dance and Round Dance is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 2, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., at Lee Center Exhibit Hall, 1108 Jefferson Street. This year’s theme is Doing More at Forty-Four! and a special program by Mainstream and Plus Tips.  

The annual square and round dance benefit the United States Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Drive by collecting toys and donations at the event.  Recommended donation for each dance couple is a new, unopened toy or a $20 minimum contribution (singles $10).  The public is also invited to come watch the square and round dancers perform.  If you do not wish to participate as a dancer but would like to donate a toy, you may drop off a donation until 3 p.m. at the Lee Center. All toys and proceeds from this dance will remain in the Washington metropolitan area.

The City’s Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities and the National Capital Area Square Dance Leaders Association and Washington Area Square Dance Cooperative Association are co-sponsoring the benefit.
