Help Rita raise Funds for the Center for the Arts

I am excited to write that I am one of 11 Celebrity Dancers selected to compete in the 4th Annual Dancing with Our Stars event slated for August 20, 2016 at the Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium in Grass Valley, California. Myself, as well as 10 other celebrity dancers have been 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. I am determined to bring home a mirror ball trophy.


As a celebrity dancer, I have pledged to raise $2,000 as my entry fee and hope that I can count on you for your support! 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. Previous years events have allowed the Center to install a lift on the main stage.

This is sure to be an amazing event and I look forward to being a part of bringing it to our community. Your presence would be appreciated, whether you are cheering or jeering—just make some noise! Tickets will go on sale to Center for the Arts members on May 1, 2016 and to the general public on June 1, 2016. I promise you will be entertained!!!

Thank you in advance for considering this sponsorship and for supporting our community. No matter what size your contribution, it will make a difference in the keeping the Arts alive in Nevada County.
