About The Event

What & Where

Back To The 80s Dance Party is a party like we had back on the day with world renown DJ Richard Blade, the band Live 80, entertainers from across the United States as well as many more surprises.  The event will be held at The Marq in Southlake.  Tickets are on sale now.


We are raising money for the Journey Learning Center (a 501c3 non profit) in Grapevine Texas.  They provide autism therapies for young children.  We are raising funds to move them from their strip center location into a new safer, more cost effective location.  This will allow them to expand services including after school programs from middle and high schoolers with autism.


Garabedian Properties, Music Movement, The Wynne Moore Group, Sam Pack Five Star Ford, Sam Pack Five Star Subaru, StrucSure Home Warranty, Mike Conkle's Custom Cabinets,  Blaize Plumbing, Sodd Electric and Veterans  Moving America have joined to gather with G7 Presents to present this Epic Evening!
