Community Leaders compete in Dance Fundraising Competition to benefit the George Snow Scholarship Fund and the Young People We Serve
Boca Raton, FL – Mark your calendars and set your DVR!Our “Magnificent 8” community dancers are gearing up for the 14th annual annual dance showcase presented by Ed Morse Automotive Group which will again be broadcast on WPTV-TV (NBC Affiliate) on Saturday, August 14th, at 7:00PM as well as Live Stream from WPTV website and GSSF’s website for out-of-town guests. Unlike many events that had to be held virtually in recent months, this event will be broadcast as a professional TV production, fashioned after “Dancing with the Stars”, full of glitz, glamour and sensational dance floor moves from community leaders.
You can host a Watch Party, make a donation, become a sponsor, buy a raffle ticket or bid online to support this very important fundraiser which helped to provide the financial resources to send 234 local students to college, university or graduate school this year.
“Over the last 13 years, our event has become the DO NOT MISS event of the season as eight of our community’s most recognizable personalities take to the dance floor for a good cause. Not to mention that coveted fundraising “Mirror Ball” trophy.” said President Tim Snow.“Because of the tremendous success last year, we decided to partner again with WPTV to broadcast the event which reached over 23,000 local residents in addition to the online viewing. Combining the fundraising results and the enhanced reach of our mission, we are optimistic the 2021 results will continue to grow.” Snow concluded.
Paired with professional dancers from Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Boca Raton, community leaders will be given a series of dance lessons to perfect a routine, and then compete for the fundraising “Mirror Ball” trophy.The spirit of the event continues to be “Education is a Game Changer” but our musical theme will bring flashbacks of the Disco era and Studio 54!
