Tickets are $20 each and include one free drink, Casquero said.

She said their goal is to sell 300 tickets to help Saipan Music and Dance Studio or SMADS fund the travel and accommodations for the 15 of its members who will compete in the hip-hop international dance competition in Phoenix, Arizona on Aug. 3 to 11.

The young dancers will compete as Team CNMI Mega Crew.

“When we were doing the 2018 Marianas Next Top Model, the SMADS dancers were the first to offer their help by performing at our event. It is time to reciprocate their kindness,” Casquero said.

SMADS Inc. president Ester Sablan said they are very thankful to the Paper Dolls.

July 29 will be a night of fun, entertainment and outrageous costumes, Casquero said.
