NOvEMBEr 2018  
The weekend is fast approaching, but there is still time to purchase tickets for the gala. Do not pass up a chance to attend our event of the year where you will experience the excitement and energy of a fantastic group of volunteer dancers. This year we are honored to have first responders dancing with Chandler Police and Gilbert Fire Departments providing teams. You will be in awe of the talent on display as participants vie for the top spot in a dance competition (think “Dancing with the Stars”). The evening will kick off with a cocktail hour at 5 p.m. followed by an enticing dinner. Local dignitaries will serve as judges and the dance floor opens at 9 p.m.

Our work would not be possible without the generosity of sponsors and volunteers who happily offer their time and resources to support programs and events such as our Dancing with Dignity 2018. So, a huge “Thank You!” is in order for those who are making this annual gala benefiting neuro-wellness a reality once again: such as United Surgical Partners, Envision Physician Services, Encompass Health, Mercy Care, Air Methods - Native Air, Phoenix Children's, OrthoArizona - the Southeast Valley Co-Management Group, Layton Construction, Chandler Anesthesia Consultants, Heart Health Organization and the Medical Staff. 

Lastly, we cannot overlook our volunteer dancers who not only are investing hours of their time in dance practice, but also raising money for such a great cause - come support them!
