SOUTHBRIDGE — The Spotlight Dance Company will host a pasta dinner at the Pilsudski Polish American Club on Saturday, May 7.

The money raised will go toward the Southbridge Relay For Life, which raises money to fight cancer. The Relay is on Friday, June 17 at McMahon Field at Southbridge High School.

"I first got involved in the Relay For Life through St. Mary's Parish," said Spotlight employee Danette Lamothe. "Five years ago, I started my own team, called the Pampered Cheffers. At the Relay, our team will perform, as they have for the past two years. This year, we tied it in so they are doing more charity work."

All of the money that the Dance Company brings in goes to charity. Where they practice, the Spotlight Dance Academy, located upstairs from the Finn and Tail Restaurant at 858 Main St., is a business, but the company itself donates its proceeds to charities.

"The Dance Company is 24 girls that perform at local events," she said. "Everything they do is charity based. We do everything we can to dance in public and everything we can that allows them to give back to the community as well. We said to them that if they were going to be involved with the Relay and perform there, they should be part of raising funds for it as well. This way, they are learning the morals and values of it at the same time."
