I’m Dancing to Help Pet Charities

Tampa Bay’s Dancing for Charity 2012

I believe strongly that animals and people together offer one another enumerable benefits. They make us laugh, reduce stress, promote physical activity, and they promote well being and self worth.

I’ll be supporting the “pets + people = perfection” notion this fall by participating in Dancing for Charity, for Julie Weintraub’s Hands Across the Bay, supporting Bay area charities.

Two of the five beneficiaries of this year’s event are Saddle Up Riding Club whose vision is to provide the highest quality therapeutic horseback riding and related activities to all those who can benefit. The Suncoast Animal League, takes in abandoned, abused, homeless and unwanted animals. They provide medical treatment, shelter,  socialization and plenty of love to the animals while they wait for their forever home.You can learn about all benefiting charities here.

Unfortunately, you can’t help me be a better dancer, that’s the job of my fabulous partner, Alberto Tabares at Fred Astaire Dance Studio in St. Petersburg.  Alberto has his work cut out for him, teaching me the Cha-Cha!

But you CAN help me help these great causes! If you are so inclined, I will be forever grateful. Here’s 3 ways you can help us meet our fundraising goal for Saddle Up, Suncoast Animal League and the other great causes:

1. Vote for me here! A $10 tax deductible contribution will help us help the charities through Hands Across the Bay. At the time of this posting, I am in last place for votes because I got into the competition later than the others. Help me catch up with this impressive pack!

2. Share this post on Facebook. Here’s a possible post to make it easy for you! “Help animal charities with a vote for my friend Kristen for Dancing for Charity! Vote here: http://dancingforcharity.com/dancers/kristen-levine/

3. Attend the star studded, spectacular event, with a ballroom seat or suggest a sponsor! More info here.

Thanks so much for any help you can offer in spreading the word to help us meet our fundraising goal!
