And We Danced DJ Entertainment had the honor of providing the musical entertainment for Amanda Strandburg, Ms. Pennsylvania Universal of 2021, and the Haven House Board’s Roaring 20s benefit ball for the Haven House homeless shelter that serves Clearfield, Elk, and Jefferson counties. The benefit was held at the Clearfield Elks Lodge #540. The Elks National Foundation also presented the Haven House Board with a grant totaling $3,500 to help the Haven House homeless shelter. This is the second year that Amanda has organized a benefit ball fundraiser for the Haven House homeless shelter.
Haven House resides in a residential neighborhood located in DuBois, Pennsylvania. The homeless shelter opened its doors in 2006 and has served over 800 people. Occupancy changes every day, but it averages over 70% where 18% of its residents are children. Haven House relies on donations since it is a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation. It is always looking for volunteers.
Fitness is a big part of Amanda’s life. She is a Pennsylvania National Guard member who won the 2021 Ms. Pennsylvania World. She will be competing in November for the title of Ms. USA World Universal. Anyone over the age of twenty-five, married, or single may participate in the event. Amanda volunteers at the Haven House homeless shelter and the Salvation Army. Her mother was a single mom who relied on the help of the Salvation Army and other social services, so Amanda strongly wants people to know that Haven House and other social services are there to help.
And We Danced DJ Entertainment entertained quests with music; while, Lotsa Laffs Photo Booths had guests showing their Prohibition spirits. Speakeasy music entertained clients with jazz. The Haven House benefit ball heard some music from the Roaring 20s as well as current popular tunes. Be it slow dancing or fast dancing, everyone had a chance to show guests their excitement and fun for the Haven House cause.
Thank you, Amanda and the Haven House Board for allowing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of the Haven House benefit ball. Good luck Amanda as you compete for Ms. USA World Universal in November!
