FLIP FLOP HOP NEWS
What Is The Flip Flop Hop?
The Western North Carolina Down Syndrome Alliance will host a special evening
celebration "The 5th Flip Flop Hop - Dancing for Down Syndrome, Asheville's Only Tropical
Gala". The event will take place on Saturday, February 12, 2011, with all proceeds going
to support education, advocacy and special projects of the Western North Carolina Down
Syndrome Alliance (WNCDSA) such as annual camp & enrichment program scholarships,
monthly parent meetings, annual family picnic, new parent packages and other special
needs as determined by the WNCDSA Board. 100% of the funds from this event will be
used to benefit individuals/families within WNC. This gala will be held at the Orange Peel in downtown Asheville and includes an exciting silent & live auction with packages that
range in price and offer something for every member of the family. Admission is $50.00
per person, and includes two drink tickets to accompany the menu selection which offers
a variety of island flavors provided by Marta's Catering from The Venue. Doors open @
7:00. The sounds of Asheville's own Caribbean Cowboys Band will provide the tropical spirit
as they take us "Down to the Islands" with their mix of reggae, Buffett, beach, blues and
boogie. Dashboard Blue will be the opening for the Caribbean Cowboys and will take stage @ 7:00pm. We look forward to seeing you on February 12th as you join us to Dance for Down
Syndrome - flip flops optional.
Thank you Western North Carolina

sponsors, volunteers and the WNC Community for their support of "Asheville's only Tropical
Gala - The Flip Flop Hop" which has been a successful event since 2006!
