This year's Thrill the World event brought in $7,415 for the SecondStory Conservatory (SSC) in Redmond Town Center.
The event was organized by Redmond Zombies and included a dance performance to Michael Jackson's song, "Thriller" by 340 participants as part of a worldwide attempt to set the record for largest simultaneous dance.
The money raised for SSC came from various sources: $5,630 from dancer registration fees, $1,131 from dance workshops, $210 from donations and $444 from merchandise.
SSC is SecondStory Repertory's education program and the money raised will help keep costs down and make arts education accessible to everyone, regardless of income level.
