RICHMOND, Va. – Folks moved and grooved to tribute bands playing songs from the 1970s by artists like Donna Summer and KC and the Sunshine Band Saturday night at the Hippodrome in Richmond.

A Night at the Disco is one of a number of creative fundraisers Housing Families First, a group that provides services to families experiencing homelessness, holds throughout the year.

"They love going back to the '70s," Housing Families First Executive Director Beth Vann-Turnbull said. "They are really dressed in bell bottoms, a lot of sparkle, a lot of polyester and leisure suits.  We have a lot of dancing and disco lessons coming up."

The an annual event is expected to raise more than $75,000.
