Dancing for a Cause

August 10, 2019@7:00 pm-10:00 pm

Each year The Arc of East Ascension hosts, Dancing For A Cause, a creative fundraising event modeled after the hit ABC television show, Dancing with the Stars. This event benefits the efforts of The Arc of East Ascension in providing services to citizens with disabilities in our community.
This local event will feature many of our community leaders as they put their best foot forward and show off their ballroom dance performances on Saturday, August 10, 2019.
The excitement from our community leaders, our organization, star dancers, professional dancers, Chairwoman Sharon Morris with Honorary Chairwomen Donna Britt and Emcees Cheryl Mercedes and Greg Meriwether from WAFB our proud presenting sponsor will help ensure that the evening is successful with a VIP reception for all sponsors.
The Arc of East Ascension is a non-profit organization that provides vital needs to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Ascension Parish and surrounding areas. Our vision is to see a future for people with disabilities that is all-inclusive and ensures a quality of life through education, employment, family/community involvement, housing, recreation and access to services.
It is our hope that you will consider being a sponsor for this year’s event. As a sponsor, you will be exposed to over 2,500 people who attend Dancing For A Cause annually. Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated.
