Ben and his wife Alison, had a dollar dance at their wedding reception to raise funds for NMDP®.

“Everything went beyond what we expected for our dollar dance at our reception. In just 4 songs, we raised $523, with a grand total of $673 raised. We had set what I thought was a lofty goal of $500 and blew that away.” - Ben
