Stepping Up – Celebrity Dance-Off 2014

  • Jul. 10, 2013 9:59 p.m.

For the last two years, many people of Red Deer and Central Alberta have come together for an incredible community experience.

The Celebrity Dance-Off fundraiser for the Red Deer Hospice Society has engaged our community beyond expectations. Our professional dance community shared their time, talent and treasures; our celebrity dancers worked tirelessly to raise incredible amounts of money; the business community committed to generous sponsorships and, many talented volunteers came forward. But most importantly, the community came together in great numbers and generously supported this new and exciting fundraiser.

Recently the Hospice Society’s board of directors announced it would not continue with the Celebrity Dance Off but rather, it would focus Hospice’s resources on legacy giving.

Wishing the Hospice Society continued success in its fundraising endeavors, a group of community members has come together as a steering committee to plan next year’s Celebrity Dance-Off.

So mark your calendar because the Dance-Off will take place on April 11 at the Sheraton Hotel. The name of the deserving charity will be announced in the fall along with the class of 2014. Stay tuned Red Deer for some exciting updates.

Edie Hiebert (Edie_Hiebert@shaw.ca, 403.350.7178) and Christine Moore (ChristineMoore18@gmail.com, 403.392.1279) have agreed to co-chair the 2014 Dance-Off, both of whom have been instrumental in launching and growing the event over the last two years.

If you would like to volunteer, touch base with Edie or Christine, or a steering committee member. You will love the experience.

Natalie Brooks, Jeanne Davis, Kathy Lacey, Terry Loewen, Edie Hiebert, Jim McPherson, Christine Moore, Lyn Radford, Duane Rolheiser and Tina Wasik
