Boys & Girls Clubs Event
Set for March 25
by Matthew Lemberg, Executive Director, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sun Corridor
“The sequel is never as good as the original.”
This is a phrase we have all heard before, because let’s face it, it’s generally true. Home Alone 2 was not as good as Home Alone (did you know there are actually six movies in the Home Alone franchise?). Dumb and Dumberer is definitely not as good as Dumb and Dumber (is it obvious I grew up in the 90s?), and the list goes on and on.
But as I will explain here (and as you will see other places over the next few months), I truly believe that this year’s Dancing for our Stars event will more than live up to the massive expectations set by last year’s inaugural event.
Dancing for our Stars is a dazzling dance competition featuring 10 local celebrities who have each been paired up with a local professional dance instructor. As was the case with last year’s event, our organization could not be more excited about this year’s lineup of local stars:
- Trey Davis
- Tena Dugan
- Lisa Fitzgibbons
- Lisa Garcia
- Kelly Herrington
- Dr. Adam Leckie
- Dr. Tracey Lopeman
- Ray Nieves
- Louie Sanchez
- Henry Wade
After months of dance lessons and practices, our 10 dance teams will perform their routines at the event on Saturday, March 25. This year’s event will take place at Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino ballroom, and in addition to the actual show, we will kick-off the evening with the Pre-Event Red Carpet Reception and end the night with an After-Party at Oak & Fork.
There are three ways for you to support this event:
- Attend the event.
- Sponsor the event.
- Vote for your favorite team. The team with the most votes will win the People’s Choice Award!
More information about purchasing tickets, sponsoring the event and voting for your favorite team can be found at https://dancingforourstars.net. We hope you will support this event.
Last year’s show was the most successful fundraiser we ever hosted, and all of the funds we raise this year will support our clubs in Arizona City, Casa Grande and Maricopa.
And for what it’s worth, I think Ocean’s 12 was better than the original (and I really liked Ocean’s 11)!
