The Pink Fund and Fred Astaire Dance Studio - Bay Harbor Islands Seek Breast Cancer Survivors for Nationwide Fundraising Event
Are you a survivor? Do you know a survivor? Has breast cancer affected your life in any way? If so, Dancing With The Survivors(R), presented by The Pink Fund and Fred Astaire Dance Studio - Bay Harbor Islands, and which returns to Miami Beach on September 25, 2016 at the Aventura Cultural Center, is the event for you.Dancing With The Survivors(R) pairs breast cancer survivors with professionally trained dancers from Fred Astaire Dance Studios across the country. For three months, they meet weekly to learn and perfect a ballroom style dance to be performed in front of an audience at their venue. Now in its fourth year, this annual, nationwide fundraising event to benefit The Pink Fund is an evening of dancing, music, cocktails, and delicious food to celebrate a nationwide community of breast cancer survivors who thrive in their recovery, and make a difference in the lives of other cancer patients. The money raised goes to local breast cancer patients experiencing the devastating financial losses that may occur during treatment. In order to make this night possible, The Pink Fund and the Fred Astaire Dance Studio - Bay Harbor Islands are seeking breast cancer survivors in the Miami Beach area to dance in this event. The call is open to women and men. Because this event is a showcase and not a competition, dance experience is not required. Those who wish to dance in honor of a survivor struggling with the disease, or to honor the memory of a loved one taken by the disease, are also welcome. Those interested are required to submit a "Request to Dance" form online at: http://www.pinkfund.org/2016-dancing-with-the-survivors/. Selections will be made by July 1 to allow participating dancers three months of training with their assigned Fred Astaire professional. Dancing With The Survivors(R), 2016 events will also be held in Denver, Detroit, Houston and New Jersey.
