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 Therapy, 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:


Suzanne, or “Suz” (say sooz), is your friendly local Radio Host and Program Director. She’s been serving the Central Coast Community through her work at American General Media in SLO since 2006. You'll catch her on air weekdays from 6-10 am at our local Wine Country Radio station, The Krush 92.5, and from 2-7 pm at SLO's long-standing home for Classic Rock, 93.3 KZOZ. 


"Investing time in expanding our culture, diversity, and overall quality of life in SLO County is what feeds my soul and is my main daily motivation. When Lumina Alliance reached out with this opportunity to dance AND raise funds and awareness for their amazing work and the Therapy programs that they maintain, I JUMPED at the chance...or maybe I did the Running Man...that's probably more accurate (and a better mental picture). I understand that therapy is an important piece of life in general, but even more so when navigating trauma and hardship. Please join me in supporting this amazing organization! Please donate to my campaign! Let's go big to rock this thing for Lumina Alliance!”
