BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office partnered with Harris Corporation, Florida Institute of Technology, Space Coast Daily and C&R Designs as they hosted the second annual “Dancing For the Space Coast” at Florida Tech’s Clemente Center.
Dancing For the Space Coast was attended by a large and enthusiastic audience of more than 700 people, and raised more than $280,000. Ninety percent of the profits raised from the event is earmarked this year for the Foosner Art Museum, Sally’s House and AMI Kids.
The remaining 10 percent will be donated to the Brevard County Public Safety Charity that helps public safety officers in Brevard County in a time of need.
This exciting event featured 13 Space Coast community and business leaders, including Jim Frazier, owner of Grimaldi Candy Company; Kent Smith, President and COO of Revolution Technologies; John Lau, Titusville Police Chief; Christina Rose of Bansbach EasyLift; Courtney Chavert; Carol Ann Stumpf of Beyond and Back Travel; Lori Scott, Brevard County Supervisor of Elections; Brenda Sheets of Harris Corporation; Eric Austin, Cocoa police officer and AMI Kids board member; Dr. Desmond Blackburn, Brevard County Schools superintendent; Michelle Pearse; Dr. Kantilal Bhalani of the Doctors’ Goodwill Foundation, and Bino Campanini of the Florida Institute of Technology.
“The true stars of the event are the dancers who work diligently to raise money for these worthy causes,” said Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey.
Each celebrity dancer was matched up with a professional dancer as they compete in a ballroom dance – and for bragging rights as the best dancer in Brevard.
“Each dance pair competed in a choreographed ballroom dance that was be scored by a panel of judges,” said event chair Lindsey Deaton.
“During the show, couples earned scores based on several technical skill factors, but the judges’ scores alone didn’t decide the dancer’s final score.”
Leading up to the actual performance, the dancers had already scored 60 percent of their points through their fundraising endeavors.
Dancing For the Space Coast was presented by the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office and sponsored by Harris Corporation, Space Coast Daily, Revolution Technologies and Florida Institute of Technology.
