This year I started a dance partnered cancer foundation in honor of my mother that was diagnosed this January with Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer. I didn’t want to sit back 2000 miles away and do nothing. Supporting cancer research is amazing but it doesn’t help when paying the bills that quickly add up or helping get a support system in order. I decided to combine my ballet career with this philanthropic desire and founded TuTus for TaTas!
This Saturday we are holding our First Annual Fundraiser, a Dance Carnival partnered with Campbell’s Dance Studio. There will be a carnival atmosphere with cotton candy, snow cones, face painting, popcorn, 3 bounce houses, and 13 vendors and boutiques. We will have 3 yes THREE straight hours of benefit dance performances by Campbell’s Award Winning Competition Team as well as a DJ and raffle prizes such as scholarships to dance conventions, restaurant gift cards up to $50, gift certificates for 1 free month of Taekwondo and more!
Our mission is to help raise funds and awareness for local families suffering the financial and emotional burden of cancer and to celebrate life through the gift of dance!
Please share this organization and event with your friends and family to help spread the word. Thank you for your support! Love you guys! xoxo
