Some people fighting the good fight—raising money for cancer— are really stepping it up (literally) this year with the Footloose & Cancer Free 2020, where amateur dance couples from more than a dozen different Pap Corps chapters will compete live in a dance competition that will be also featured in online in videos.
The event is intended to raise funds from friends, family and cancer-fighters globally, and dancers will be judged on their signature dance moves, while sharing their often poignant and very personal reasons for supporting cancer research. Voting is open to everyone, everywhere with a minimum of $5 per vote. An award will be presented to the best fundraising couple, in addition to honoring the best dance couple.
This Sunday-Funday event will feature a three-course luncheon with champagne toast, followed by open dancing after the competition.
Where: The Opal Grand Resort in Delray Beach
When: Sunday, March 22, 2020 at 1 p.m.
Tickets: $75 per person; visit thepapcorps.org
Supports: Research at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer
“This event is a wonderful opportunity for people everywhere to support ground-breaking cancer research though a dazzling celebration of dance,” said Beverly Berkowitz, Vice Chair of The Pap Corps. “We are very proud that our theme is Support the Next Survivor as it truly encapsulates The Pap Corps’ mission.”
To prepare for dance competition, the amateur couples will be taking dance lessons at The Delray Ballroom to perfect routines to their favorite songs. All the couples will also be featured in a group dance lead by the ballroom’s owners, Kris and Amanda Whitney.
“We are so grateful to our dance couples who have volunteered to participate in this event,” said Linda Moses, Chair of The Pap Corps. “We are inspired by their dedication and their stories, and we look forward to having people visiting our website to learn about our wonderful members and vote, vote, vote!”
