Dance For Hope America Gala,

Pasadena Masonic Temple, Pasadena, California, United States Pasadena Masonic Temple, Pasadena, California, United States

  • About the event

    Dance For Hope America’s “Great Gatsby Gala” on October 19, 2018, at 6 P.M. in the ballroom of the historic Masonic Temple in Pasadena, CA. This is a formal event, where attendees can dress up – wear your favorite Jazz Age fashions or modern formal attire. Return to the Roaring ’20s when people really knew how to party! Delicious international food will be featured with an open bar (for VIP sponsors), a live band and dancing, plus onstage professional dance performances. And best of all, you will be helping Children of One Planet - a nonprofit that is dedicated to breaking down barriers and bringing children together through dance. It is proven that dancing makes children happy and helps them develop important social skills. We will also give them age-appropriate information on the dangers of bullying, teen pregnancy and human trafficking.

     

    Why should you sponsor?

    Twenty years ago I saved a baby I found buried alive in a shallow grave on a trail in Altadena. The County took custody of him, he was adopted, and his records were sealed. But I never lost hope we would meet again. Just this May, another miracle occurred: On his live radio show, Ryan Seacrest reunited me with Matthew Whitaker, the child I rescued, who has grown up into a wonderful young man. Matthew has agreed to join my mission to save other children from despair and abuse.

    Finding an abandoned baby inspired me, back in 2000, to create Children of One Planet, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization to help orphaned children and child-related causes around the world. I believe that dance is the best way to break down societal barriers and bring children together. Dance makes children happy, gets them to exercise and helps them develop important social skills. Because of my experience when I found Matthew, I also want to use my dance programs to deliver age-appropriate information on the dangers of bullying, teen pregnancy, and human trafficking.
