Winter Gala for Pediatric Cancer Research
vent, January 9, 2015

Dottie Broadfoot

Dottie Broadfoot

Mark your calendar and please join us for a night of dancing and fun on January 9, 2015, as we raise money for Pediatric Cancer Research for Cincinnati’s Children’s Hospital! In conjunction with the 2015 Riverfront DanceSport Festival, organizers Gert Roslender and Bill Sparks have graciously offered to co-host the Gala, along with previous Riverfront Dancesport Festival co-organizer, Doreen Beatrice, at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center.

As the date of the event comes around, it will be nearly one year since we lost a special friend and huge supporter of the Ballroom Dance Community, Dottie Broadfoot. She also had a strong passion to help children and was a long time volunteer at Children’s Hospital here in Cincinnati and loved one of our own, Max Gjerde, who we lost battling this disease.  We will hold the fundraiser in Dottie’s memory.

Along with plenty of Dancing, we will host a silent auction, enjoy gourmet appetizers, watch some special performances frome local amateur couples and listen to tunes played by DJ BernieB!

Looking forward to seeing you there!
