“My grandmother Dolores Polanco passed away last year from pancreas cancer and it was devastating for me and my family. I decided to make a difference by proposing a dance event to the Florida Film Commission who re-directed me to Space Coast Film Commissioner Bonnie King,” said Angel Vasquez, who is currently working as an intern for WFIT 89.5 FM Radio & Florida Tech Sports.

“Bonnie loved the idea of dancing to raise money for Cancer patients and she introduced me to Jackie Siegel, Coconuts on the Beach Restaurant and I found the Cancer Care Centers of Brevard and the rest is history in the making.”

A $15 donation is requested, which may be made at the event, or online through Secure PayPal at www.CCCFoundationInc.org
