Breast Cancer Awareness Month is here. We’re pitching in to fight this terrible disease, which is expected to take nearly 41,000 lives this year, even as about 267,000 new cases are diagnosed.
Every October, we have a Go Pink party for breast cancer awareness here at the Brandon studio, where we have three breast cancer survivors in our studio. Each year we rotate and let one of the ladies choose a charity for us to donate to. Our breast cancer charity for 2018’s campaign is Cakes to Cure for St. Joseph’s Hospitals Foundation. https://www.sjhfoundation.org/events/cakes-to-cure/
This year, our Go Pink party is Friday, Oct. 12. We donate for each student who wears pink to the party.
Please come out and join us for these events. They help a great cause, raise awareness of breast cancer and should also remind all women to be sure they get checked. Early diagnosis helps!
Also of note in October: We’re having our Grow Into You Foundation Dance-a-thon on Friday, Oct. 19.
Attendees will be dazzled by an evening of pro ballroom demonstrations, spotlight dances, general dancing and very special performances by teens in foster care. These teens have been working with Fred Astaire Dance Studio’s certified instructors to showcase their unforgettable routines. Tickets for the Dance-a-thon are $20 per person. In addition to a night of dance is a catered menu, multiple prize drawings, and additional opportunities to sponsor teens in foster care. For more information, please call the studio at 813-438-5963.
