ROLEX Career Transition For Dancers 25th Anniversary Silver Jubilee was a complete sell out with everyone of the 2,700 seats at City Center filled. Over 800 guests went on the the Hilton for the Anniversary supper, the live luxury auction and dancing with the dancers. The evening raised a cool $ 1.2 Million which will go to CTFD's scholarship programs. Allen Brill, ROLEX USA, CEO & President committed to presenting the annual Jubilee for three more years.
 
Longtime supporter and past CTFD honoree Patricia Kennedy who has been a passionate sponsor of dance and assisting dancers, recently took a page from CTFD's playbook and has created Step Up 4 Vets to help retuning Vets to transition to civilian life. As she has in previous, she filled her table with Vets and their spouses.
 
 This year she took the opportunity to present the Peace One Earth Medallion to Tiffany Smiley wife of Capt. Scott Smiley who was blinded in a road side attack in Iraq and is the only blind actively serving officer in the Army. He recently wrote the inspiring book Hope Unseen.
