“Ain’t no party like a super pink party; cause a super pink party just rocks!” – Abraham Lincoln
Lincoln might not have said that, but he would have if he knew about this event.
This Saturday one of my favorite events returns to the Horseshoe Riverdome, and I’m beyond excited to see this year’s dancers take the stage.
Each spring, the North Louisiana affiliate for Susan G. Komen holds one of its largest fundraisers of the year, Dancing for the Cure.
This year’s dancers will have some big shoes to fill (size 14). Because last year, I took home the Pink Mirror Ball Trophy becoming the first male – and first non-KSLA person – to win the event. I’ll also be at there this Saturday, see you there?
But really, everyone who attends Dancing for the Cure is a winner because everyone who attends is helping raise money to help fight breast cancer, with 75% of that money staying right here in our region.
Dancing for the Cure is Saturday night, April 21, inside the Horseshoe Riverdome. CLICK HERE for ticket info and online voting in the People’s Choice Competition.
Ed Walsh and Chrissi Coile will once again emcee the pink tie affair. I love those two!
This year’s Dancing for the Cure will feature five (5) dancers who will compete for the Pink Mirror Ball Trophy.
Here’s a list of this year’s dancers…
Adria Goins – KSLA
Shelli Briery – Horseshoe Casino
Roy Lang – Shreveport Times
Brian Fowler – KTBS
Karen Edwards – KMSS
