Ballroom Dancing, Granting Wishes

Local Faces Cut a Rug for a Good Cause

The Arthur Murray Dance Studio invites you to an evening of dance, food, and charity-all held beneath the luminous summer night sky.

Arthur Murray dancers grace the stage in jaw-dropping choreographed ballroom competition along with local “celebrities” such as Golden Glove boxer Henry Calles; Calabasas realtor Nieves Flores; retired Major League baseball player, Matt Franco; musician David Kauffman, and publicist Mo McFadden. The event, which also includes a silent auction, benefits the tri-counties’ Make A Wish Foundation, which grants the favors to children with life-threatening medical conditions in order to strengthen their spirits. The Arthur Murray Dance Studio aims to raise $5,000 to adopt the wish of one of the area’s own local deserving children.

This event will be held at Fess Parker’s Doubletree Resort on Sunday, July 15, 7-10 p.m. Tickets cost $75, 100 percent of which goes directly to the Make A Wish Foundation.
