Thank you for supporting me as a Star Dancer for Lumina Nights: Dancing With Our Stars, a fundraising event benefiting Lumina Alliance, on April 12th-13th! I am raising money for Lumina Alliance to support their essential services, like Transitional Housing, which is near and dear to my heart. Every donation, big or small, makes a difference in the lives of survivors, their family members, and our community at large. 


As you may know, Lumina Alliance provides an array of vital services for victims of sexual and intimate partner violence in SLO County. I am committed to helping survivors find hope, healing, and empowerment. Please join me by donating today!


I also hope to see you at the event! If you’d like to see me bust a move on the dance floor, please purchase a ticket to either Friday or Saturday night and be prepared to cheer for yours truly. Thank you for your support of Lumina Alliance and of me! Your kindness, encouragement, and donations will go a long way in uplifting me during this new experience.


About the Star:

As the Citizen of the Year for the Atascadero Chamber of Commerce in 2020, Brenda May is an active community member and supporter of Atascadero and San Luis Obispo County. She and her husband, David, have lived in Atascadero for 36 beautiful years, raising their two children, Michael and Jamie, here. She is now a proud grandmother to 4 little ones and absolutely loves it!

Brenda has spent her life investing in Atascadero primarily as a cosmetologist and fitness instructor, as well as uplifting her community through service organizations and even as a teacher’s aide (a job she truly loved). 

"Since I am a survivor of sexual child abuse, I have a passion for Lumina Alliance and wonder if my childhood might have been different with an organization like this. We can rise above where we came from if we just believe in ourselves and not allow others to bring us down with judgments because of where we came from.”


Event Details:

Join us for this memorable event featuring "Dancing With Our Stars" and celebrate our Star Dancers making an impact in the movement to end gender-based violence.
