Held at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet
Dancing With The Stars of Mentoring is a dance “fun”raiser organized by the non-profit RI Mentoring Partnership. The organization helps children and teens throughout the state of Rhode Island. The fundraiser is styled after “Dancing With The Stars”; professional ballroom Instructors from The Dancing Feeling gets paired together with a “star” – someone who is committed to helping this great cause. They have little or no dance training and learn to dance while raising funds for the event.
The Dancing Feeling strongly believes in this cause as children and teens are very important.
The program has shown that kids in the program are:
- 46% less likely to begin using drugs
- 27% less likely to begin using alcohol
- 53% less likely to skip school
- 33% less likely to engage in violence
The Dancing Feeling donated all services to this cause from 2007 to 2016. And we couldn’t do the fundraiser without the help of Mario Hilario from Turn To 10!
Tickets will not be sold at the door.
Over the past eight years the fundraiser has helped raise over $700,000!
