Where does my donation go?

The proceeds from this donation drive benefit children enrolled in Synapse’s Arts Partner in Residence classes at Loyola Park in Rogers Park and Berger Park in Edgewater. Our fall session gives 50 students ages 3 to 11 access to high quality dance classes for as little as $1.80 a class.

Your donation will make these heavily subsidized classes possible this fall, whether classes take place in person or online. Donors like you also provide class equipment like dance shoes and apparel, ballet barres, and speakers for music.

How does this type of donation drive work?

It's simple - donate securely online to reserve your kit, then come pick up your goodies at Dizzy Cow Candy and Curiosity Shop (2155 W Irving Park Road, Chicago) on Saturday, July 11th anytime between 9am and 12pm. We will have curbside pickup, call 773-706-6187 when you arrive at the store.

Can't pick up your kit on July 11? No problem! Call Dizzy Cow at 773-706-6187 to arrange another time for pickup.

Please make your donation online by July 10 to secure a kit for pickup on July 11

Your gift allows under served children in the Rogers Park and Edgewater neighborhoods the chance to enjoy a high quality dance education and express themselves through the joy of dance.

Thank you for your support!

What happened to the Ice Cream Social?

As much as we have loved to share ice cream with you, its just not safe to gather in a big group right now. So we are sending you home with the fun, and a chance to have your own ice cream since the $100 kits come with a Baskin Robbins gift card!
