Dancing for Arizona's Children

DiscoBallLogoCelebrity Dance Challenge & Brunch Benefiting Arizona's Children Association

December 5, 2015 - 9 AM-1PM
Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel 

Registration & Reception - 9 AM-10 AM / Brunch Celebration starts @ 10 AM

We need your support! The number of kids in Arizona’s foster care system have skyrocketed in the last few years – more than 19,000 children are now in out-of-home care. We have to give these kids the care they need, but we also have to address the family issues that create these situations of abuse and neglect.

Introducing the “Dancing for Arizona’s Children” Celebrity Dance Challenge! Local celebrity dancers and community leaders will perform in a “Dancing with the Stars” style event to raise funds for Arizona’s Children Association life-changing programs.

The family-friendly dancing event will also incorporate a number of youth dancers and their stories, as well as provide introductions to some of our youth who are currently in foster care and are available for adoption – looking for their forever families!

All funds raised will go directly to Arizona’s Children Association’s “Strengthening Families” Fund, which goes directly to support our foster care, kinship, and adoption programs.

AzCA will provide parking validation for ‘self-parking’ under the Sheraton. Valet parking will be available for the discounted rate of $10.
