LEXINGTON They dance for hope for their future. They dance for hope for those in need during a cancer battle. They dance for hope for others battling cancer to be successful.
An inspiring event, unique to the Bluegrass, is being planned for Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 6:00 pm at the Grand Reserve, 903 Manchester Street, in Lexington. Kentucky CancerLink, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, whose mission is to reduce barriers to screening, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer, is partnering with Arthur Murray Lexington to present “I Dance for Hope.” Hunter Lisle, owner of Arthur Murray Lexington, says, “It’s a pleasure to provide hope and joy through dancing and to partner with an amazing group of people for a great cause!”
Ten cancer survivors are partnered with professional Arthur Murray dancers to learn choreography for the event. “I Dance for Hope” participant Lori Beth Miller says, “It is hard to put into words, but I was very blessed throughout my treatment. I am committed to doing anything that I can for this cause, and that includes taking dancing lessons to participate in this fabulous event.” Miller and her husband Brian will dance under the instruction of Arthur Murray Lexington professional Rosie Picone.
“I Dance for Hope” will include a silent auction, seated dinner, entertainment by Arthur Murray Lexington, survivor dance showcase, and dancing for all.
Sponsors for the event include UK HealthCare, Baptist Health, and KentuckyOne Health Saint Joseph East Breast Center. Individual tickets are $125 or a reserved table for 10 for $1250. The suggested dress for the event is cocktail attire.
Vicki Blevins-Booth, executive director for Kentucky CancerLink, says, “I hope our community will join us as we celebrate these brave survivors, remember the taken, and raise funds to support our mission that continues to provide hope to many.”
