Dancing with Boulder Stars 2018
posted by: Guest Blogger
Not all fundraising events are created equally and YWCA Boulder County’s 2018 soiree requires your dancin’ shoes!
Their annual Dancing with Boulder Stars 2018 fundraising event will take place at 7:00 P.M. on October 23, 2018 at the Boulder Theater in Boulder, Colorado.
Modeled after the hit TV show, Dancing with Boulder Stars is an annual event to celebrate and help to fund the organization’s mission to empower women and eliminate racism. The evening brings together members of the community by recruiting local celebrities to train with professional dance coaches in teams of two and then compete with one another in front of judges and a live audience. Dance routines and styles are extremely diverse and entertaining. Audience members vote for their favorite teams via donations, which benefit YWCA Boulder County. Teams also have the opportunity to compete for and receive votes in advance of the live event.
Funds raised by Dancing with Boulder Stars support important programs including Reading to End Racism, Latina Achievement Support and Children’s Alley, the only drop-in, sliding scale child care in the Front Range. In total, over 6,000 individuals are served in our community by this meaningful and relevant work.
Since YWCA USA’s founding in 1858, YWCA has been at the forefront of the most critical social movements. This rich history, along with its current program offerings, makes YWCA USA the oldest, largest, and one of the most accomplished multiracial organizations in the fight for social justice. In Boulder, YWCA has evolved over the years from boarding house to social club and today is a human service agency. The organization is a non-sectarian nonprofit that is not affiliated with any religious group, and is a publicly funded, inclusive organization that welcomes everyone to participate, male and female alike.
