Sierra Sub 4 Santa
Submissions are now open!
Sierra was a dancer at UDA, whose life was cut short tragically in 2012 when she was just 6 years old. Sierra loved life and being active, she really enjoyed being outside, hiking in the mountains, soccer and especially dancing. Sierra would dance during the credits after movies and at restaurants, if they played music. Sierra loved to learn and was looking forward to the first grade. She was just learned to read and couldn’t get enough of it. Sierra had the amazing ability to make everyone happy with her big brown eyes and beautiful smile that would light up her face. Sierra loved to make friends, which she did easily; she would stand by someone for a minute and then introduce them as her new best friend. Sierra was an amazing sister, she would watch out for her older brother and took care of her younger sister, who was her true best friend.
In Sierra’s memory UDA created Sierra’s Sub for Santa where each Christmas our UDA family donates gifts to give families who are in need. The past five years we have given Christmas to 17 families and 55 children. This is a wonderful tradition that we look forward to each year.
UDA will be Giving Christmas to a Family in Need This Year!
Once again this year, in memory of Sierra Newbold, Utah Dance Artists will be displaying an angel tree with ornaments listing items that families in need would like for Christmas. We have an amazing UDA family here at our studio and are hoping to get a lot of support to help these families in need.
Soon we will be asking for your help to find families that may need some extra help with gifts this Christmas. If you know of someone in need you may nominate them starting in September.
The nomination can be for any family you know that needs help. Please submit the nominations by September 27th so that the Newbold family will have time to select those they feel are most in need. Watch for the tree in our lobby during our "Remembering Sierra" week Monday, Nov 5th - Saturday, Nov 10th. "Remembering Sierra" week will be the week you can choose an ornament and buy a gift for one of the families. We are hoping to help as many families as possible.
