Dancing for Stroke in Chandler AZ
Dancing for Stroke is a black-tie dinner and dance performance fundraiser with Dignity Health Foundation and Arizona Ballroom Champions. All proceeds and donations will benefit the Dignity Health East Valley post stroke programs. The fundraiser is similar to the show Dancing with the Stars, where ten doctors and nurses are paired with a professional ballroom dance instructor. The participants will dance the routine of their choosing with their instructor and will receive a score from the judges and an audience vote to determine the winners. One competitor will win for the best dance and one will win for the most money raised.
In addition to the dance competition there will be performances by several national and international dance competitor couples, a performance by the stroke survivors to demonstrate how dance therapy is helping with their recovery and social dancing to end the evening.
The dancers each have their own fundraising page to raise money to support programs for stroke survivors including: the Stroke Camp, Ringers of Hope chimes choir, stroke survivor and caregiver support groups, dance classes and Hippotherapy a program that involves horses.
Special guest will be Jonathon Roberts from Dancing with the Stars and Jineane Ford will be hosting the event.
Tickets are $300 and there are a variety of sponsorship opportunities available!
