Help me support veterans at Dancing with the Stars and Stripes!

I’m raising money for veterans! This year I am honored to be one of the stars in Dancing with the Stars and Stripes. I’ve been paired up with two amazing dance professionals who are teaching me a unique dance routine that I will get to perform live on stage on Saturday, April 25 at the Sonoma Country Day School.

There are two reasons why I chose to be a part of this event. First, the event and fundraising efforts are all to help veterans. Being a part of this event means that I have been asked to raise money for Veterans Resource Centers. This is an amazing organization that is helping homeless and displaced veterans. They also provide programs for veterans coping with PTSD and addiction.

The second reason why I chose to be a part of this event is that it was time for me to step out of my comfort zone. I know I do a lot of really fun things but having to learn a new dance and then perform it to a crowd of nearly 1000 people is just a little bit daunting. I am literally dance stepping out of my box and trying something new and challenging yet feels so rewarding.

So, my ask of you is your support! There are many ways that you can support me and by raising money for Veterans Resource Centers through the Dancing with the Stars program.

First you can vote for me…..with your dollars. Every dollar you donate is a vote for me! There is no greater honor than to be the dance team that raises the most money for this worthy cause. And of course, you know, I want to win!

Your business can be a sponsor! You’ll get an ad in our beautiful programs, social media and web exposure, recognition at the show, VIP tickets and of course my undying gratitude! Sponsorship Webpage

Thank you for your support of me, as I fumble through my dance lessons and twirl onto the stage! And mostly, thanks for your support raising money for veterans!

Hope to see you soon!
