Make-A-Wish Foundation benefit dance competition

I would like to inform you of a change of date for the Arthur Murray "Dancing Under the Stars" event. The original date was July 13th, 2008. We have moved it to August 24th, 2008. The location and time are still the same. It will be held August 24th, 2008 at 6:00 pm at Fess Parker's Doubletree Resort in Santa Barbara.

Arthur Murray Dance Studio is hosting a celebrity dance competition called "Dancing Under the Stars" to benefit the Make-A-Wish® Foundation of the Tri-Counties. The event will be at Fess Parker's Doubletree Resort.
The competition is similar to what is seen on Dancing With the Stars. It will consist of 6-8 local celebrity performers. The event will also include a silent auction of items to be donated by local businesses and organizations. All employees, including the director and the instructors, are donating their time. 100% of ticket sales and auction proceeds will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Tri-Counties. We are asking for your support to offset expenses in running the event.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a nationwide non-profit organization with local chapters throughout the country. It was established in 1980 and has grown into the largest and most professional wish granting organization in the world. The goal of the Make-A-Wish Foundation is to grant wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.

Last year was our inaugural event, and it brought in nearly $10,000! This year we have a lofty goal to double that amount. We can only do this with your help.

We invite you to become involved by:
• purchasing tickets to the event at $75 per ticket
• donating an item for the silent auction
• becoming an event sponsor through a cash donation
• offering a donation of services to support the event

We look forward to seeing you at this great event! For more information contact Arthur Murray Dance Studio at (805)963-6658 or (805) 495-1445.
