Dancer and volunteer Reness Nasca-Vaughan and her husband Luke Vaughan lost their 5 year old greyhound Kent to a rare blood disorder. Leaps for Lives chose SA Greys as a way to honor Kent and to give back to local greyhound adoption.
Leaps for Lives is a dance benefit showcase created by The DanceLoft and made possible by Dance for a Cause, a national not-for-profit organization whose mission is to share dance as a celebration of life, raise funds for charity, and promote the joy of dance.
This year's Leaps for Lives features seven high energy local dance groups.
This is a family-friendly event with picnic-style seating (BYO blanket or chair). Food trucks and greyhounds will be on hand. Well-behaved pets on leash are also welcome. Bring your friends.
When: Saturday November 8 - from 6 to 8 PM
Where: DeMeester Outdoor Performance Center at Reid Park, enter via Country Club Drive
Cost: Buy tickets in advance/online - $10/general, senior/student/$7.50-use discount code Leaps4Lives
And tickets will be sold at the event - $15/general, $10/senior/student
Reness and Cindy Hall will be on the Morning Blend (KGUN-9) on October 30 at 11 AM talking about dance, greyhounds, and why you want to attend this event.
Let's all support Reness and help her help SA Greys. Spend an evening in the park, enjoy energetic dance while helping to raise funds for the hounds. Everyone wins! Follow Leaps for Life 2014 on Facebook
