BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The annual “Dancing For the Space Coast” fundraising event is returning to Florida Tech’s Clemente Center this year on Saturday, June 4.
Known as the largest fundraising event in Brevard County, Dancing for the Space Coast is a unique competition and fundraiser that benefits worthy non-profit organizations on the Space Coast.
Last year’s event raised more than $300,000 for Habitat for Humanity of Brevard, Women’s Center of Brevard, Family Promise of Brevard and the United States Law Enforcement Eternal Flame.
This year, Dancing for the Space Coast will raise money to benefit House of Hope, Promise in Brevard, Veterans Memorial Center, and the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Charity.
Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Charity, Inc. was established to assist Brevard County law enforcement officers and firefighters in their time of need.
The highly entertaining event will showcase featured dancers Zachary Biddulph, Ashley Buesher, Lenora Caines, Barbara Furtney, Mindy Gibson, Danielle Masucci, Rob Medina, Jayvo Scott, Matt Susin and Tim Thomas.
“As Sheriff of Brevard County, it gives me great pleasure for our agency to host Dancing for the Space Coast,” said Sheriff Wayne Ivey.
“Dancing for the Space Coast is an exciting event that teams up local celebrities with dance professionals, in a competition to benefit Brevard County nonprofit organizations. Each competitor dedicates their time and talents taking dance lessons and also diligently raises money as part of the competition.”
BRAGGING RIGHTS ON THE LINE
Each celebrity dancer will be matched up with a professional dancer as they compete in a ballroom dance – and for bragging rights as the best dancer in Brevard.
On the evening of the competition, each dance pair will compete in a choreographed ballroom dance that will be scored by a panel of judges. During the show, couples will earn scores based on several technical skill factors, but the judges’ scores alone don’t decide the dancer’s final score.
Leading up to the actual performance, the dancers will have already scored 60 percent of their points through their fundraising endeavors to benefit needy charities.
