A charitable agency, United Way, which hopes to encourage people to work together on a fund-raising campaign, gathered at Ledyard Fair to start a fundraising campaign.
The United Way volunteers marched out, formed ranks and began dancing to ‘Man in the Mirror’ which blasted from the speakers. Those with signs and balloons paraded around the group of dancers.
The United Way of Southeastern Connecticut organised the flash mob to start their fundraising campaign. The group raises money to try to improve the lives of those in New London County. The dance was followed by a speech from the campaign’s leaders, Melodie Peters and Rodney Butler, chairman of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation.
Meanwhile in Oklahoma, a flash mob of Norman High School students danced to Michael’s ‘Beat It’ before the college football game between the University of Oklahoma Sooners (OU) and Florida State University Seminoles (FSU) at the Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium on Saturday, September 11th, in Norman, Okla. The performance was a Win-Win Week fundraiser to raise money to support patients at the OU Cancer Institute.
