For the last few months, my dance partner, Jessie, has been a foundation in my life. A tireless worker, Jessie has shown me what dedication means as she has juggled being a single working mother with her dancing with admirable grace and skill. She’s been more than a dance partner; she’s been a confidant and a friend when I needed her the most and now is the time to return the favor.
In early March, Jessie’s family was struck with tragedy as her 7 year old son was diagnosed with a brain tumor which had to be removed immediately. Luckily he was able to have the procedure but even with health insurance brain surgery is NOT a cheap operation to have and now she finds herself in dire straits.
On April 29th, Port Orchard Dance will be hosting a very special fundraising Dance-A-Thon at Academy of Dance. Starting at 7pm and lasting until there is no one left dancing, this event will feature great music, wonderful dancing, free food and drinks, dance lesson giveaways and so much more all to benefit this Jessie and her family in their time of need. ALL proceeds from the event will be donated directly to the family to help pay down medical bills.
To gain admission to the event, all you have to do is either donate ANY amount directly to her GoFundMe campaign (https://www.gofundme.com/
