'Virtual' 610 Stompers to benefit Team Gleason, ALS Association

Verbatim from press release:

610 Stompers invite you to become a Virtual 610 Stomper to benefit Team Gleason and The ALS Association

Win the Virtual 610 Stomper “Peep Show” fundraising dance competition and become a 610 Stomper for a day


New Orleans’ favorite all-male dance team, the 610 Stompers, invites you to show off your extraordinary moves to benefit Team Gleason and the ALS Association. The 610 Stompers are proud to announce its 1st Annual Virtual 610 Stomper “Peepshow”, a fundraising dance competition that will put three competitors in 610 Stomper shoes for one glorious day.


As part of the competition (open to all men and women over the age of 21) participants go to www.610stompers.com , learn a dance online via our instructional video and post the dance (and freestyle dance) on the “Peepshow.” Friends and family can “reveal” the dance by donating money to raise the virtual curtain.


Fans can also meet the Stompers in person on Thursday, March 8, 6-8pm to "Bust a Move" at 12 Bar, 608 Fulton Street, and let the Stompers film your video for you. Participants must sign up at www.610stompers.com beforehand.


Peepshow participants who raise $250 will win a 610 Stomper prize package. The Peepshowers who raise the most money will then have a chance to win one of three awesome prize packages (including airfare anywhere in the Continental U.S., hotel accommodations and tickets to Stompers events) that will put them, for one day, in the golden shoes dancing through the streets of NOLA. The 3rd Place winner will dance with the Stompers at their annual Bar Crawl, 2nd Place at the Sweet 610 Debutante Ball and the 1st Place winner will dance with the Stompers in a Mardi Gras parade.


Proceeds from the 610 Stompers Virtual “Peepshow” will benefit Team Gleason and The ALS Association. These organizations help fund research for ALS and improve the lives of the people and families fighting Lou Gehrig’s disease.


Now is the chance to dance! The competition ends on April 15. Become a Virtual 610 Stomper now at www.610Stompers.com
