Winter Fling 2014!

Winter Fling Dancers and Teachers

The 2014 Concord Stars and their teachers.

On Saturday January 25, NHTI hosted its 4th Annual Winter Fling fundraiser, featuring the ever-popular Dancing with the Concord Stars competition!  This year's event featured a record-breaking 14 dancing couples and a sold-out crowd of 480 guests.  Thirteen dance teachers from four area dance schools -- Concord Dance Academy, Let's Dance Studio, Miss Gen's Dance Studio, and Creative Dance Workshop of Bow -- coached the couples in their routines, and over 50 volunteers helped make the event possible.

Prior to the dance event, fifteen area restaurants (see side bar) offered Winter Flingers a sampling of the area's best fare at "Concord-by-the-Bite," while Club Soda Band warmed up those hearty partiers who couldn't wait for the dancing to begin.  Club Soda played on after the contest, keeping the party going strong until the proverbial wee hours of the night.

Winter Fling raised $30,000 in corporate sponsorships and over $25,000 in ticket sales.  Altogether, this year's event raised over $50,000 for the President's Fund for Excellence.  The four Winter Fling events held so far have raised more than $150,000 for the fund.
