National Night Out Countdown – 5 Days to Go!

Courtesy of Barbara Gellman, University City Neighborhood Watch Coordinator:

Dear Captains, Co-captains and Neighbors

Only 5 days before our big National Night Out Dance Marathon Fundraiser.

Tuesday, August 1 from 5:30-7:30 PM at Standley Park is the place to take in the action. Registration begins at 5 PM for those who pre-registered, everyone can dance and donate and have the opportunity to win prizes, kids and adults.

Aunty Lynne’s, Kona Ice and Food Trucktopia will be there to provide food choices with 10% of the profits donated to EdUCate.

The dancer who earns the most from sponsors will win the Ring Video Doorbell so sign up at  to fill in the form.

You can dance without a sponsor but list your favorite artist (jam) so the live DJ can play it.

We hope to raise enough money for the San Diego Police Foundation to purchase plate vests, shields and trauma kits; these are expensive and not covered in their budget. Example: the vests and shields cost 4000.00-6000.00 each.

We so appreciate the 2 major donations from Regency Center/Costa Verde and University Square (LaJolla Management Co) directly to the Police Foundation. UCCA is a major sponsor of this event and Target joins as another supporter again this year providing prizes.

Guest appearances from Capt. Jerry Hara from the communications department doing the Electric Slide with his team, Officer Brandon Broaddus with his team from Northern Division doing their fancy moves, Barbara Bry and her staff moving and shaking and U-Jam, a cardio fitness dance group kicking off the whole event at 5:30. Stay alert, you never know who will be out there doing some funky moves.

May I suggest that you invite all your neighbors to join you and dance as a group as “street dancers”. Neighborhood Watch is the host for this event so, lets’ show our police the support that we, as a community continue to provide.

I will be out there dancing for the cardio benefits, stamina benefits and community bonding with each other and our leaders.

Come join me for lots of laughs, music, prizes and good clean fun.
