March 29, 2019

On Saturday, April 13, eleven ballroom dance teams—local “stars” paired with professional dancers—will compete before a live audience at the 4th Annual Dancing with the Stars and Stripes fundraiser at Sonoma Country Day School’s Jackson Theater in Santa Rosa. Proceeds from the event will benefit Veterans Resource Centers of America (“VRC”), an established nonprofit that serves homeless and at-risk veterans in California, Arizona and Nevada. To purchase tickets, vote for your favorite dance team, or get more information including sponsorship opportunities and raffle prizes, visit the event website at www.dancingwiththestarsandstripes.org.

“Dancing with the Stars and Stripes will help raise awareness and much-needed funds for the agency so we can continue to address the unique needs of the veteran community,” said Peter Cameron, President and CEO of VRC. “This event gets better every year, and we encourage you to come out and enjoy a fun evening with us, see the dancers give their best and learn more about the many services we provide to veterans.”
