The Perfect Romantic Gift

Dancing Through the Decades

Most years the champions are simply crowned, and when necessary, share the award; then there's 2015. What will The Clash of 2018 bring?
 

CRIS Radio will celebrate 40 years of broadcasting news and entertainment for people who have print disabilities at this year's Dining & Dancing Gala.

The 2018 event will bring together the champions of all the previous events for bragging rights and what promises to be the hottest, most glamorous Gala of all.

Save the date- April 28, 2018.  Better yet, what a romantic gift for Valentine's Day. Your partner will be impressed; you'll be benefiting a great cause; and you will have a blast in the Ballroom!
