Dr. Rafael Cabrera
Dear Family & Friends,
Boca’s Ballroom Battle is sure to make history on August 19th as I Dance for a cause! Yes, you read that right! Get ready to watch me and seven community leaders shake it on the dance floor while competing for the coveted 1st place trophy.
Alright, I know what you’re thinking… Dr. Cabrera, dancing in front of 700 people at the Boca Raton Resort & Club? I know it sounds a bit crazy, but I promise you, I’ve got the moves to win this thing and I’m doing this for a great cause! All of the money raised will go directly to the George Snow Scholarship Fund, a local charity which provides scholarships to underprivileged youth. On June 9th, The George Snow Scholarship Fund awarded over $433,000 in educational grants to our community’s brightest and most deserving young scholars.
As one of the Community Dancer’s I need to raise as much as I can in sponsorships and I need your help! There is no amount too small when it comes to helping these deserving students. Whatever you can give, whether it be $10, $50, $100, $500 or $1,000, every penny counts and I will be dancing for your support. All proceeds will go directly to the George Snow Scholarship Fund.
On August 19th, 2011 from 6:00-10:00pm the Fund will host its 4th annual Boca’s Ballroom Battle and I would love to see you there! You can also follow my progress online at www.ballroombattle.com, where I will post photos and video updates so you can see my moves first hand!
