The clock is ticking and this year’s Boca Ballroom Battle dancers are ready for their close ups—which means taping the whole TV extravaganza is imminent! We thought it’s about time you saw those shining faces—and made your plans to watch Boca Raton’s favorite TV show of the year! The “Magnificent 8’s” show will be presented by Ed Morse Automotive Group which will again be broadcast on WPTV-TV (NBC Affiliate) on Saturday, August 14th, at 7:00PM as well as Live Streamed from the WPTV website and GSSF’s website for out-of-town guests.
Unlike many events that had to be held virtually in recent months, this event will be broadcast as a professional TV production, fashioned after “Dancing with the Stars,” full of glitz, glamour and sensational dance floor moves from community leaders. And yes, it’s a disco theme this year so you have to see it. (After all, you know all the moves—admit it.)
You can host a Watch Party, make a donation, become a sponsor, buy a raffle ticket or bid online to support this very important fundraiser, which helped last year to send 234 local students to college, university or graduate school.
“Over the last 13 years, our event has become the DO NOT MISS event of the season as eight of our community’s most recognizable personalities take to the dance floor for a good cause. Not to mention that coveted fundraising ‘Mirror Ball’ trophy,” said President Tim Snow. “Because of the tremendous success last year, we decided to partner again with WPTV to broadcast the event, which reached more than 23,000 local residents in addition to the online viewing. Combining the fundraising results and the enhanced reach of our mission, we are optimistic the 2021 results will continue to grow.”
Paired with professional dancers from Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Boca Raton, here are the fearless fundraisers, the dancing dynamos, the intrepid voyagers into the Zone of Uncomfortable. So get out those checkbooks, schedule your own fun watch party and help the George Snow Scholarship Fund send deserving kids to college. It’s a life changer.
