Thank you to everyone who voted for the “Pence Bunch” during the third annual Family Dance-off video contest.  With more than 35,000 votes in five days, the Pence Bunch helped win second place and $20,000 for Shands Hospital for Children at UF, our Children’s Miracle Network hospital.  Additionally, the Pence family won $3,000, which they’ve donated back to the hospital to help other Shands Kids!

Please join us on Wednesday, April 4th, at 10:30am, at the welcome desk of Unit 44/45 to celebrate this success with a check presentation and short reception from Primrose Schools.

The Family Dance Off Contest attracted 117 families across the nation to submit their 30-second video.  The dance off is part of Primrose School’s commitment to help fight childhood obesity, getting kids to engage in physical activity, like dancing.

Thanks for voting!
