Children to benefit from dance event

The 2008 Vanderbilt University Dance Marathon will be held Feb. 15-16.

The annual Children's Miracle Network event benefits the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, and will take place from 7 p.m. to 9 a.m. at the Sarratt Student Center.

More than $430,000 has been raised for Children's Hospital in the past six years of the event.

During the event, there will be a kid's carnival with family-centered activities and a children's fashion show featuring the Dance Marathon's child ambassadors as the models.

Tickets for Dance Marathon are $12 at the door.
