Dancing With our Heroes
The Fred Astaire Franchised Dance Studios of New England are partnering together for a fund-raising “Dancing with Our Heroes” Gala to be held Saturday, September 13th, 2014 at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford.
The event will feature general dancing, a sit-down dinner, a silent auction, a professional show and the “Dancing with Our Heroes” dance competition. The net proceeds of the event will be donated to The Friends of Fisher House Connecticut for the construction of a Fisher House on the grounds of the West Haven VA. The goal is to raise $500,000.
The “Dancing with Our Heroes” gala will culminate in a Ballroom & Latin Dance competition between our Military Heroes who will each be partnered with a professional dance instructor. Each participating Fred Astaire Dance Studio will provide the instructors and free lessons to help each Hero prepare for the gala. There will be no cost to the Heroes for participation. Winners will be selected by audience votes and a panel of celebrity judges.
