Sister Pie is having a 24-hour dance-athon.


Recent Hatch winners Sister Pie are very, very close to opening their bakery on Detroit's east side, but they need a little more cash to get the project finished.  

If you follow Lisa Ludwinski, you know she's as famous for her sweet and savory pies as she is for her dance breaks. So, of course, to raise the rest of the money she and her team need to finish the bakery's build-out, she's planning a 24-hour "dancebreak-athon," which will help scrape  together that last, measly $25,000

The fundraiser takes place from 9 p.m. on Feb. 6 to 9 p.m. on Feb.7 and you can buy a ticket, pledge in advance on their Indiegogo page, or pay the $10 suggested donation at the door. Ludwinski promises to be dancing the whole damn time. 

Lady Fantastic, Rocksteady Disco, Bertrand Hustle, DJ PopRock, Robby Dimaria, and DJ Crested will all spin throughout the day-long dance party, and there will also be an open spin, so prepare your playlists now. 

The party will be held at Paramita Sound at 1417 Van Dyke, Detroit. Buy your ticket here. Click here for more info.
