If you have not already heard I have agreed to “Dance”, yes I said Dance, in the Boca’s Ballroom Battle. I am dancing with a professional dancer (just like the TV show) and I will do the dance before 700 people in the Boca Raton Hotel and Resort Ballroom on Friday, August 20th. There are 7 other dancers from the Boca Raton area that I will be competing against.
Before you take away my “Man Card”, I agreed to do this to support the George Snow Foundation which provides scholarships to underprivileged youth. Also, if Jerry Rice, Anton Ono, Chad Ochocinco, and others were willing to do this in front of a national TV audience I can sure do this at a local level for a great cause.
My reason for agreeing to do this was my familiarity with the George Snow Foundation and the great work that they do. The main objective is to raise money for scholarships for underprivileged youth. Last year they gave out almost $500,000 in scholarships to youth who had no chance of going to college and I can tell you first hand these kids are really great and appreciative of this opportunity. They don’t want to let anyone down.
My objective is to win this competition (if your going to do something you might as well give it your best) and to try and break the record for most money raised to support the foundation.
Almost everyone gives money to different charities and causes throughout the year and I am asking for your support. If you can give $10, $50, $100, $500 or $1000 it only matters that you gave and have supported a very worthy cause.
You can help by:
1. Clicking on the “Donate” button on this page and making a tax-deductible contribution to the George Snow Scholarship Fund. Be sure to click on the drop down menu under “Dancer I am Supporting” and select my name.
2. Purchasing tickets to Boca’s Ballroom Battle, which will take place on August 20 at the Boca Raton Resort and Club. This is truly going to be the event of the summer in Boca and is an absolute must for your August calendar. You can also support the event as a sponsor or program advertiser.
Thanks in advance for your support and all the best.
