There are two ways you can get high at tonight's fourth-annual Dancing in the Sky. The event's home in Carmen's at the Top of the Bridge Restaurant in the upper level of the Bridge Hotel in Boca Raton takes care of the physical aspect. An emotional high -- if you're the kind of softie who deals in such things -- comes courtesy of the evening's mission: to raise money for Needs for Our Troops. The patriotic organization benefits the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center and U.S. troops. Between noshing on heavy appetizers and other bites from local chefs, attendees can take a spin on the dance floor, with music provided by eight-piece rock/soul/R&B band the Bulldogs, who will perform throughout the night. Or just take your free drink over to the windows and chill with a view of the boats on Lake Boca Raton.
Dancing in the Sky is from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday. Tickets cost $40 per person, with special rates available for those who want to purchase a table. Carmen's at the Top of the Bridge is located at 999 E. Camino Real in Boca Raton. Call 561-302-6494, or visit shoppingforsoldiersneeds.org.
