Play With No Boundaries, an all-inclusive playground at Oneida City Park, may be up and open to the public, but there’s still a matter of the playground’s remaining debt to be paid.
On Saturday, playground organizers will host their annual fundraiser — Dancing Like the Stars — at Oneida High School’s Performing Arts Center. All proceeds from the event go to benefit the PWNB playground.
Dancing Like the Stars is a play off ABC’s hit show, Dancing With the Stars. The event features local couples who have volunteered to dance for the community cause. But the main theme, according to Amy Martin, is an evening of fun.
Doors will open at 5 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center Saturday evening, with refreshments served in advance of the 6 p.m. show. Tickets are still available for $20, and can be purchased at the door or in advance at First National Bank of Oneida.
The playground, which officially opened last month, gives special needs children the opportunity to play alongside other children on a state-of-the-art, secure playground that emphasizes safety and meets their needs. Martin spearheaded efforts to build the playground at the park after realizing how much difficulty her own son, Joseph, had playing on traditional playground equipment.
A few tables beside the dance floor are still available for purchase for Saturday’s event. The tables, which seat six, can be purchased for $200. They can be purchased by contacting Martin at 865-617-8682.
