Orange Ribbons for Jaime Launches 2nd Annual Nationwide Dance-A-Thon Fundraiser

FEATURING Special Guests Tara Strong, Alyssa Milano, Ben Stiller, and many more! Honoring Daughter Murdered in the Parkland School Shooting 

Boca Raton, FL – On February 14th, 2018 Jaime Guttenberg, along with 16 other victims at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, was tragically murdered by a troubled former student. She was only 14 years old. Following the tragedy, Jaime’s parents, Fred and Jennifer Guttenberg, formed Orange Ribbons For Jaime (ORFJ), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization to honor their daughter by supporting causes important to her in life, but also causes that deal with the way her life was tragically cut short. 

Because one of Jaime’s greatest passions was dance, ORFJ created a Nationwide Dance-A-Thon to raise money for programs that the organization supports. This includes funding a college scholarship that was created in honor of Jaime, as well as a new initiative they are launching to help support families affected by gun violence. 

ORFJ’s 2021 Dance-A-Thon will be the organization’s second annual fundraising event. They will be kicking it off with a Virtual Dance Party for ALL ages & abilities on October 23rd from 7PM – 9PM EST, as well as in-person dance parties at locations across the country from 10/1 – 10/23.
