Family Instructions - How to Register!

For our Dance-A-Thon, we're using our brand new fundraising system that makes it much easier for you to request pledges from your family and friends, and for them to make secure credit card donations online. It's fun, it's easy, and people who use it typically raise twice as much as those who don't!

Remember, our Dance-A-Thon is Sept 21st, so please register now to help us raise as much as we can for theater arts classes, camps, and shows for the San Diego area. Remember, you'll need to raise a minimum of $60 to get into the Dance-A-Thon.

Sample Page Message: 
Thanks for visiting my fundraising page! I am so, so, thankful you visited! 
CYT is an amazing organization that I love being a part of. CYT is more than just theater arts training, it’s a vibrant community of people that are awkwardly closer than family. I’ve enjoyed learning, growing and becoming more secure in myself through the CYT programming. Now, I’m asking my family and friends to help me ensure more kids my age can experience this amazing community. 



And, bonus!

We are sharing the love by giving back to the community we serve!  Our event will also support a very special local non-profit, The Monarch School, who serves homeless students in grades K-12 who live in San Diego County. Bring new socks and new or gently used shoes to our event and we will make sure your donation goes to children who need them.
