Boca’s Ballroom Battle

Weekly Update

Dear Family and Friends,

The battle continues!  My training is going well, but I have a long way to go.  Look at my photo page to see my progress.

In case you’ve forgotten, I have been chosen as a participant in the Boca Raton’s annual Ballroom Battle.  A local spinoff of the popular “Dancing with the Stars”, Boca’s version has eight prominent community leaders compete in a ballroom dance competition. 

The event takes place at the Boca Raton Resort and Club on August 16th 2014.  Most importantly, all money raised goes directly to the George Snow Scholarship Fund, a local charity committed to assisting our community’s brightest and most deserving scholars. On June 5th they provided over $637,000 in educational grants and are making a real difference in our community. 

I am dancing for your support and while I’m not comfortable asking, knowing that ever dollar I raise helps a dream to go to college come true, makes it much easier.  Please consider donating. I am counting on my family and friends to help me raise as much scholarship money as possible. 

No amount is too small; any amount is sincerely appreciated!!!  “Click here to support me now Or If you wish to attend, please call Kelli-Ann McLeod at Bloomingdales – 561-394-2228 to purchase tickets, tables on my behalf..

Thank you so much for your support!
