Dear Family and Friends,
OMG!! So excited to tell you that I received the phone call I have been dreaming about. I am honored to be selected as one of the “Elite Eight” dancers to compete in Boca’s Ballroom Battle 2016. This is the summers “don’t miss” charity event. It is a local spinoff of the popular show, Dancing with the Stars. Besides being chosen to dance, the most wonderful part of this is that all monies raised goes directly to the George Snow Scholarship Fund. This charity provides scholarships to deserving high school seniors to go on and better their education. With our support these hard working young adults will be on a stronger path to discovering their full potential.
This event takes place on August 20, 2016 at the Boca Raton Resort and Club. You can follow my dancing progress here on our website, where photos and videos will be posted.
I am reaching out for your support to help me raise a minimum of $50,000. There is no amount too small, every dollar is appreciated. You know me, I am going to put in all of my heart and soul into this charity event. Please Join me in this amazing cause.
