Thanksgiving Dinner & Dance in Severna Park - Everyone Invited!

Oracle will be performing for a benefit Dinner & Dance at the Columbian Center in Severna Park this coming Saturday, November 26th.  Doors open at 6:00 and the band kicks off the dancing starting at 8:00.  We'll be playing until midnight.

This will be a fundraising event sponsored by "Joy In The Spirit of the Lord", a group composed primarily of members of the Filipino community in and around the Severna Park area, but the dance is open to ALL who wish to attend.

There is no better way of sharing in the spirit of Thanksgiving than by the mingling of cultures, just as the Native Americans and the Pilgrims did back in 1621, almost 400 years ago.

The Dancing

Ballroom dancers are especially encouraged to attend as this group REALLY knows how to dance, and we'll be breaking out all our cha-chas, waltzes, and tangos for the event, in addition to our regular lineup of popular dance music.

Do you enjoy line dancing?  We're willing to bet you might learn a new line dance or two from the group as well, as they seem to have literally dozens of different line dances for a host of songs you probably recognize but wouldn't ordinarily associate with a line dance.

The dance floor is especially spacious to allow folks plenty of room to dance.

The Food

Are you ready for a treat?  Are you open to experiencing some unique culinary treats you may have never experienced before?  For this event some traditional Filipino fare will be offered that will surely tempt your taste buds. 

Just as at the first Thanksgiving the Native Americans welcomed the Pilgrims and introduced them to the native foods we have all become used to, this is an opportunity to experience and share another culture's cuisine.

Can there be a more fitting way to spend the Thanksgiving weekend than with a mingling and sharing of cultures and traditions, food and of course DANCE?


Tickets are $45 and are generally tax deductible, although you should check with your tax advisor to make sure.  Heaven knows we could all use some additional tax deductions as the end of the year nears.

Tickets may be purchased in advance by calling any of the numbers listed above at the top of the page.
Tickets will also be sold at the door, but we encourage anyone considering attending to call ahead so organizers have a reasonable idea of the final attendance.

Directions to Columbian Center

The Columbian Center is very easy to get to.  Located right on Route 2 between Annapolis and Glen Burnie, it is just minutes from the Baltimore Beltway, Route 100, or I-97.
