Please Help Me, Help the Center for the Arts

I am excited to write that I am one of 10 Celebrity Dancers selected to compete in the 1st Annual Dancing with Our Stars event slated for August 23, 2013 at The Center for the ARTS. Myself, as well as 9 other celebrity dancers will be paired with a professional dancer to raise money for The Center for the Arts and compete for the title of Dancing with Our Stars Champion.
As a celebrity dancer, I have pledged to raise $2,000 prior to the event as my entry fee and hope that I can count on you for your support to sponsor me as a dancer! If I can get 100 of you to donate $20 each or if 20 people can generously write a check for $100, (or one very generous soul), I will reach my goal. Of course, any amount is very much appreciated, as it will help The Center for the Arts continue to bring top quality entertainment to our region and build community through the arts. In addition, a portion of the proceeds will go towards The Center’s capital campaign to raise funds to bring ADA access to the main theatre and stage.

Please make your check payable to The Center for the Arts, Attention: DWOS and mail or drop off at 314 W. Main Street, Grass Valley, CA 95945. Remember to include my name, Hollie Grimaldi-Flores . You can also contact me, I would be more than willing to stop by, pick up the donation and write a receipt for the contribution.
