Fort Collins is FIRST on the Dance Floor

Michelle and Allan Schell, of Fort Collins, Colorado, gathered their family and friends for a fun night of dancing in support of FIRST.  Affected with X-linked ichthyosis, Allan attended FIRST’s National Family Conference 2012-Denver, forging connections and gaining valuable information about ichthyosis.  After receiving support from the FIRST community, Allan and Michelle wanted to give back.  They decided that a dance would be a fun way to gather together, spread awareness, and raise funds.

FIRST on the Dance Floor was planned for February 21.  Even with a snowstorm on the day of the event, 55 people attended and had a fantastic evening.  A silent auction just added to the fun of the night.  The Schells raised more than $3,500 and the owners of the ballroom space were so impressed, that they offered back a portion of the payment to add to the event proceeds.

FIRST is so grateful to Allan and Michelle for their tremendous efforts on our behalf.
