Mosey on down to Lonerider Brewery, a local watering hole not too far from Carolina Dance Center, on Saturday, March 24th from 6pm – 10pm. Join fellow CDF families, supporters, alumni and directors as we raise money to support our Foundation and its Outreach Programs. Along with local brews (and wine) and some good grub provided by MoonRunners Saloon food truck, we’ll be holding a silent auction, as well as exclusive blind and live auctions with some exciting items up for grabs.
