Ain’t no party like a pink party!

Saturday April 21 the Horseshoe Riverdome is the site for the 2018 Dancing for the Cure to benefit Susan G. Komen North Louisiana.

If walking pink carpets and watching local media and community stars compete for the Pink Mirror Ball Trophy is your cup of pink lemonade, drink up! Your time is here!

‘Dancing for the Cure’ is a night on the town to raise money for breast cancer research and local programs for outreach, education, screening and support. It’s also a lot of fun to watch and the atmosphere is great be apart of.

General Admission Tickets are $25 and Reserved VIP Tables of 8 are $500 (includes pre-party beginning at 6pm) Tickets and Online voting for the People’s Choice Award are available at http://nwla.info-komen.org/site/Calendar?id=22333&view=Detail

This is the fourth year for the event and the 2018 dancers include;

Roy Lang – Shreveport Times

Adria Goins -KSLA

Brian Fowler – KTBS

Shelli Briery Murphy – Horseshoe Casino

Karen Edwards – Fox 33


Each dancer is training for the big night with the talented group from Vicky’s Dancers.

Ed Walsh and Chrissi Coile will guide dance goers through an action packed night that will include several surprises and capped off with the presentation of the pink mirror ball trophy.


Questions and possible storylines for the 2018 event;

-Will Adria Goins bring the Pink Mirror Ball Trophy back to KSLA and complete the dancing dynasty for channel 12?

-Shelli Briery Murphy is very familiar with the Horseshoe Riverdome, but she’s also very familiar with the dance floor. Do the others know about how good a dancer Shelli is and will they be able to keep up?

-Will a guy win the event for a second year in a row? Roy Lang and Brian Fowler sure have their eyes on the Pink Mirror Ball Trophy, but they have their work ahead of them.

-What does the Fox say? Karen Edwards is rocking KMSS 33 but will she be holding the Pink Mirror Ball Trophy at the end of the night?

-And will anyone else make an appearance? They could. Maybe. Could anyone else possibly show up and shake, rattle, and roll the crowd? Who knows?
