In 2017, The Sault Events relaunched The Festival of Trees as a fundraiser for the Chippewa Family Project, dedicated to building a group home for homeless teens. Event Coordinator Mary Jo DuVall invited all local dance companies to work together in providing a showcase of area performing art while auctioning fully decorated holiday trees.
in 2017, ASAO Performers showcased 2 dances, in Acrobatic Ballroom, stylized by Swing Dance & Waltz. ASAO DJ Darryl choreographed a Christmas Tree's lights to sync with the dancer's movements in the Waltz performance.
In 2019, ASAO Performers returned with 3 routines. Choreographed by the dancers themselves, a Contemporary Hip Hop, an Acrobatic Waltz, and a Swing/ Jive were featured.
In 2016, Paul Perry teamed up with Country Superstars Doug Supernaw & Bobby Randall to put on a concert dedicated to the movie that inspired Country Line Dancing across the states - Urban Cowboy.
ASAO Performance Teams learned 17 Line Dances and 5 Acrobatic Ballroom Routines. Ashley worked with dance captains Carrie Novak & Levi McFarland over headsets throughout the evening, as dancers learned to perform on the fly! Dancers were placed alongside the superstars on stage for 3 nights.
In 2017, Ashley was approached by LSSU Marketing students Laura & Tyler Bouschor to assist in a new kind of fundraiser. The event featured an auction, country swing dance lessons by ASAO, and various food donations. Together, the group raised $500 for the Chippewa Family Project, in an effort to decrease homeless youth in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.
Each year since 2016, Ashley & Darryl host a table at the Walmart Vision Center Health & Wellness Fair. In 2017 & 2018, Megan Smart & Lynn Carrick attended & performed to showcase the Country Swing curriculum offered in ASAO Acrobatic Ballroom Lessons.
