Second Annual Dancing With The Stars of Charlotte for The Pink House Fundraising Event April 29, 2017
In Honor of
Dr Teresa Flippo-Morton
Carolina Breast Friends in partnership with Charlotte Ballroom will hold its 2nd annual fundraising event on Saturday, April 29, 2017 in memory of Dr. Teresa Flippo-Morton. The show is structured similarly to ABC's hit show Dancing with The Stars.
Dr. Flippo-Morton was beloved by many breast cancer Survivors and members of the Carolina Breast Friends organization. There are numerous stories Survivors tell of their relationship with Dr. Flippo and the positive impact she had on their lives.
The fundraiser will be a dance lover's dream with professional dance performances throughout the event alongside the numerous Charlotte Star and Pro duos. Each couple will be competing for not only the mirror ball trophy for judge's choice (top score), but an additional mirror ball trophy for "top fundraiser."
The inaugural event in April 2016 surpassed expectations from every perspective. The event sold-out the 440 seat Booth Theater within 4 days and raised over $308,000 for Carolina Breast Friends. Although April 2017's venue holds 730 seats, show director and owner of Charlotte Ballroom, Felipe Gonzalez Edmiston alongside other committee members are confident the show will sell-out quickly due to the excitement and anticipation of community partners.
Says Carolina breast Friends' Executive Director Melonee Hostletler, "Carolina Breast Friends is a 501c3 non-profit organization serving the Charlotte area for more than 13 years. We provide what no other organization has for the community: the connection of one breast cancer survivor to another, unconditional support and encouragement, and empowerment through education. Adds Hostetler, "We are pleased to partner with Felipe Gonzalez Edmiston's Charlotte Ballroom to deliver a world-class ballroom event in memory of Dr. Flippo to benefit The Pink House. Come join in the fun, help support our heartfelt non-profit, and experience an evening you will never forget."
