Travel back to the 1950s at the Family Council Sock Hop

-A A +A
By The Staff

Life is just too short not to see Morrie Pongratz dressed as Elvis Presley and this Saturday, you have the chance. Slide on your saddle shoes and tie up trainers because the third annual Fabulous Fifties Family Sock Hop is from 6-10 p.m. Saturday at Fuller Lodge.The fundraiser will benefit the Youth Activity Centers in Los Alamos and White Rock as well as the Los Alamos Family Council’s Counseling Center, both United Way agencies. As statewide budget cuts reduce funding, local nonprofits are compelled to ratchet up fundraising to make ends meet.“The Family Council provides really, really important services in our community,” LAFC board member Barbara Marcille said. “For example, the LAFC Youth Activity Centers are a safe haven and a great social environment for elementary and middle school kids who might otherwise be alone and unsupervised after school. And, the LAFC Counseling Center offers affordable therapy for everything from addictions to relationships to grief to stress.“Unfortunately, both the Youth Activity Center and the Counseling Center services cost more to provide than the income they generate through grants and insurance payments. Even nonprofit organizations have to find ways to make ends meet,” she added.
