How does it work?
Paired with dance professionals from Fred Astaire Dance Studios of Boca Raton, each community dancer will be given a series of dance lessons, and practice their professionally choreographed routine for 5 months, all while reporting their progress to their friends, family, colleagues, and social circles. In September, they will compete for the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy. The dancer with the most funds raised, wins.
How can I help?
Support your dancer by purchasing sponsorships, tables, tickets, raffle tickets, program ads, or making a Dancer Donation. When completing your purchase or donation, please indicate on the form which dancer you would like to credit for the purchase.
How does Boca’s Ballroom Battle help our students?
Providing scholarship funds is easy. Dedicating ourselves to helping each student graduate from college is the focus and challenge for our staff. Beyond receiving scholarships and financial aid, these students become a member of the George Snow Scholarship Fund family. They will receive our guidance and support well beyond their freshman year, as they start the next phase of their lives. Everything we do is guided by the question “what would we do for our own sons and daughters?”
By contributing to Boca’s Ballroom Battle, you are providing funding for the scholar support services that our students so desperately need. From laptop computers to dormitory supplies, an emergency fund for unexpected and nonrecurring expenses, a closet full of lightly used clothing, holiday care packages in time before their final exams… these support services provide the love and support for our scholars when they need it most. Thank you for your hand in giving our scholars the ability to thrive during their college years.
Can you tell me more about the George Snow Scholarship Fund?
What began as a memorial to one philanthropic and devoted man has become a community asset – a family of individuals, corporations, private foundations, and community service organizations who share the belief that education is the key to a better life for the young people we serve.
Our mission to is to help hardworking students in South Florida graduate from college by providing financial aid and wrap-around support services. Our goal is to ensure that no student is deprived of an education dur to shortage of funds or lack of support.
In 2022 we celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the George Snow Scholarship Fund, and we reflect on our beginnings and our journey over the last four decades. In 1982, our first year, we awarded scholarships to three students, totalling $8,000. We are incredibly proud that in 2021, we awarded over $2.2 million in scholarships and support services to over 234 deserving scholars. We firmly credit the success of this organization to our community partners, donors, and volunteers, like you.
