It’s Dinner Time For The 708 Dancers

Two hours into THON, dancers are being served their first meal. In order to stay standing, dancers and Dancer Relations Committee Members gather around tables distributed around the floor.

Dinner tonight was provided by Dickey’s Barbecue and Campus Catering. On the menu is pulled pork, mac and cheese, veggies, brownies, and cookies. According to our reporters on the floor, dinner has been a hit with the dancers.

“It’s really good,” said dancer Dan Combs. “The first meals supposed to be the best one.”

Dancers are served in 50-person increments by members of the Hospitality Committee. There are snack stations on the floor open all 46 hours with items like Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches and pretzels to keep dancers fueled throughout the night.

If you’re at the BJC, make sure to keep your blood-pressure up and stay hydrated!
