Join Us - Inclusive Old School College Dance Party Fundraiser by We've Got Friends

Are you ready to boogie down for a cause? Get ready to dust off your college gear and mark your calendars for March 1st, 2024, because We've Got Friends is hosting an epic "Old School College Dance Party" fundraiser that you won't want to miss!

We've Got Friends is a non-profit organization based in New Jersey with a mission to create inclusive social spaces for teens and young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Learn more about our founding story. Our goal is simple yet profound: to foster meaningful connections, empower individuals, and cultivate a sense of belonging within our community. Our hope is for this fundraiser to raise $37,000, to fund 4 months of free programming. 

The festivities kick off at 8:00 PM at The Grand Cafe & Bistro in Elizabeth, New Jersey. With its vibrant atmosphere and spacious dance floor, it's the perfect venue for a night of retro jams and good vibes.

What to Expect

Picture this: the beats are pumping, the dance floor is alive with energy, and laughter fills the air. Whether you're busting out your vintage college sweatshirt or rocking your favorite jeans and tee, come as you are and join us for a night to remember!

All tickets purchased include mouthwatering Caribbean cuisine, as well as a selection of beer, wine and specialty cocktails, generously provided by our sponsors, Diageo and Harlem Blue. Cheers to friendship and making a difference!

Supporting a Worthy Cause

By purchasing a ticket for $125, you're not only gaining access to an unforgettable evening of entertainment but also supporting a cause close to our hearts.
