Dancing for DC is being organized jointly by the 8th Grade DC Trip Fundraising Committee, composed of Greenwich Public School 8th-grade parents, PTA Co-Presidents, and Principals from the three GPS middle schools. The Committee was formed in October 2022 to help facilitate the trip for 2023, the first trip since COVID, with the goal of continuing this time-honored tradition for 8th graders for years to come. We have since sent over 600 8th Graders to Washington, D.C. last year, and hope to send 600 more this Spring with your help!



We have several fundraising events planned for the next few months.

Can’t attend? Consider making a donation to the 8th Grade DC Trip Fund via our partners at the Greenwich Alliance. Click here and indicate "DC Trip" under "Allocation.”   


Dancing for DC 




The Greenwich Alliance for Education and The 8th Grade DC Trip Fundraising Committee invite you to Dancing for DC on Friday, January 19, 2024, from 6-9 pm at Old Greenwich Social Club.  Dance the night away to rockin’ tunes from That’s What She Said.  Cash bar and free appetizers with ticket purchase.  Tickets are $50 per person, and proceeds will go toward funding the D.C. Trip for current and future GPS 8th graders.  Be sure to purchase your tickets soon because only 200 tickets are available, and they will sell out!
