“There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good.” – Edwin Denby
Ultimately the good is for others, others less fortunate than we, others reaching out and we extending a hand, grateful for what we have and can share. Pathways of Hope is a helping hand for disadvantaged individuals and families in North Orange County.
Insanity! Eight “volunteers” succumbed to hidden urges to take the stage or acceded to dance by arm-twisting antics of Pathway of Hope personnel.
The fourth annual “Look Who’s Dancing” event was held at the Fullerton College Campus Theater, Thursday, February 8, 2018. Promoted by Pathways of Hope as a unique fundraiser; contestants are trained to dance by professional partners similar to “Dancing with the Stars.” Local businesses and the audience of 400 plus supporters raised over $67,000. Pathways of Hope is helping the homeless and needy with services including housing, food, counseling and other assistance.
Dancers received certificates from the California Legislative Assembly in recognition of: “Your dedication to supporting Pathways of Hope in their efforts to end hunger and homelessness” signed by Sharon Quirk-Silva, Assembly Member, 65 District.
