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 Advocacy, 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.
