Please support the Center For The Arts and Me!

I have been practicing like crazy for the upcoming Dancing with our Stars event with my professional, Barry Connick. You can come to event on August 23rd at the Grass Valley Veterans Hall for an evening of pure entertainment, but first I need to raise my “entry fee.” Each dancer must raise a $2000 entry fee. I am almost half way there.

This is a reminder for you if you have said yes to sponsoring me in my quest to raise money for the Center For The Arts to please do so and if this is a first request, please say yes! The deadline for my entry fee is July 15th.

I have been practicing diligently but have to remember the reason I said, “yes.” Just before being asked to participate in this event, the son of one of our station principals was paralyzed in a motorcycle accident. These funds will go toward making the Center Main Stage wheelchair accessible, among other general improvements. Not to say he will ever choose to be on that stage, but how difficult for him would it be if he had to be carried there, after overcoming so many other obstacles. I don’t say yes to many of the organizations who ask, but I felt compelled to say yes to this.

Any amount would be greatly appreciated. I am 46% of the way to my goal of $2000. If you would like to send a check – you can send it directly to KNCO at 1255 E. Main Street 95945 – please make the check out to The Center for the Arts.
