Dance off support was great

I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to some exceptional community people. The Celebrity Dance Off cabinet is composed of a group of extraordinary community-minded people who invested a tremendous amount of time, energy, skills, personal sacrifice and enthusiasm in support of making a difference for children and youth in our community.

I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to some exceptional community people. The Celebrity Dance Off cabinet is composed of a group of extraordinary community-minded people who invested a tremendous amount of time, energy, skills, personal sacrifice and enthusiasm in support of making a difference for children and youth in our community.

The recent Celebrity Dance Off event was an overwhelming success in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Red Deer.

Combine these people with some amazing celebrity dancers, volunteers and the numerous sponsors and supporters, this event was truly a community undertaking.

It continues to remind me how fortunate we all are to live in a city with so many people who care and give of themselves to make a difference.

All the combined efforts came together for a single evening of entertainment, fine dining, amazing dancing and sharing of the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Red Deer 37 year legacy.

This gala event represented a model partnership of how an agency can work together with a group of community leaders and so many other supporters to not only raise the needed dollars, but to also share the stories and impacts over generations in our community.

Thank you to the 2014 Celebrity Dance Off cabinet for your vision, leadership, support and passion in support of our greatest investment — our children and youth.

Thank you for Sharing the Magic.
