GiGi’s Playhouse San Diego Invites You to the 2017 Dance-A-Thon!

Dust off your dancing shoes! On Saturday September 30th, from 2-5pm GiGi’s Playhouse will be hosting their first ever Dance-A-Thon. We’ll have great music, fun surprises, raffles and so much more! Team is our theme this year so gather your friends and family and create your fundraising team. Ask your team members to donate to your team page and encourage them to ask their friends and family members for their support and pledge. Make sure to sign up ASAP since the fundraising portion by your team will be during the month of September, leading up to the event. Prizes will be given to the team with most team spirit, the team with most people and the team that raises the most funds.

How do I start?

Go to our website and under events you will find the 2017 Dance-A-Thon (or click here). Scroll down and click Register, you will be given three options. You can register as an individual, you can join an existing team or you can create your own. Follow the prompts and register for the event (Admission is free but you still need to register). If you are unable to make it to the event, you can still participate by fundraising online. Once your team is created you will receive an email with the subject ‘Claim Your Account’. That link will allow you to set your personal password and then log in to personalize your team page. Once it’s ready, share it with friends and family so they can also join the team, pledge donations, etc.

Ordering Team Shirts

Because what’s a team without a team shirt?! We have been lucky enough to partner up with Amenitees who is not only offering customized shirts at a discount price, but they are also donating 10% of all sales to GiGi’s Playhouse San Diego! You can order your shirts here or through our website. The shirts are $15 each (tax not included) and all orders must be placed before midnight on Monday September 18th. Shirts will be handed out on Sept. 27th (location TBD) or can also be picked up at Registration the day of the event.

Additional Support

We have sponsorship opportunities in case you or your business/employer would like to sponsor the event. Perhaps you know of someone or a group that would like to showcase their dance/cheering/musical routine?

Please email us at for additional information.

    Is this event only for those with down syndrome or those kids with other disabilities?

      Hello Chris! Our apologies for the late reply. This event was back in September, but everyone was invited to attend just like all our events! All abilities welcome!
