Greetings!

It's that time of year again! The Arc of East Ascension is a non-profit organization that provides individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Ascension Parish and surrounding areas. 

Each year we host "Dancing for a Cause" which is a creative fundraising event that will support the programmatic efforts of The Arc of East Ascension, modeled after the hit ABC television show, "Dancing with the Stars."

Our local event will feature many of our community leaders as they present their ballroom dance performance on July 8, 2017. 

This event will benefit the efforts of The Arc of East Ascension in providing services to the mentally and physically disabled citizens in our community. We ask if you would consider being a Sponsor for Dancing for a Cause. As a sponsor, you will be exposed to over 1,200 people who attending Dancing for a Cause yearly. 

Event Date: Saturday, July 8, 2017

Event Time: 7:00 p.m.

Event Location: Lamar Dixon Expo Center

Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Due to the recent state budget cuts, we ask that you assist us in any way possible. We hope that we can count on your support and your contribution to make this event a success. Please let us know of your plans of support. 

Best Regards,

Sharon Morris, Marketing Director/Event Planner, Dancing for a Cause Committee
