Dancing DIVA

(photo credit: ballroom-dance-chicago.blogspot.com)

I am so honored to announce that I'll be competing for a very pretty trophy this spring in the Alzheimer's Association's annual "Memory Ball" being held here in Baltimore on April 18th. I absolutely LOVE to dance, however, ballroom is a wee bit different than the kind of "shakin' it on the floor" I'm used to :)

This is a great challenge for me and since I'm competitive by nature, I'll be putting 1000% in to this effort. It's also an amazing event for such a worthy cause - and one that touches me on a personal level. My beloved Grandma Bessie had Alzheimer's..so I know that it's important to do the research in order to find a cure.

I am asking for everyone's support - you can attend the event in person and be my "cheering squad" or you can participate online with your generous donation. I'm shooting for a goal of $5000 for this project - any and all contributions are appreciated! There are two "trophies" - one for the most dollars raised and one for the best dance routine. I want both :)

Thank you in advance for your support - I appreciate it!!

Put your dancing shoes on and show them how the "DIVA" gets down. Have a great time and it is truly for a good cause. I worked in a nursing home so I know first hand what Alzhiemers is. Good luck!:)
