NEW ROCHELLE—Move over “Dancing with the Stars”! The Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation has adapted the popular TV series to its own special fundraising event, “Dancing for the Foundation,” taking place on Thursday, May 18 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at New Rochelle’s Glen Island Harbour Club.
Anyone who’s a fan of famous dancers like Ginger Rodgers and Fred Astaire or “Dancing with the Stars” celebrities Kellie Pickler or Derek Hough can look forward to an equally exciting dance competition—but this time among their own peers! HGAR Realtor and Affiliate members will be tapping their toes for prizes and the coveted “winner” status of the Foundation’s first dancing competition event.
“We are so excited about this event—this is the first of its kind for the Foundation,” said Carol Christiansen, Chair of the HG Realtor Foundation Fundraising Committee. “It’s definitely going to be an interactive event with audience participation and a great opportunity for networking, and of course, having a lot of fun!”
The seven dancing couples participating are:
Irene Amato, ASAP Mortgage Corp. and Mark Aakjar, Mark’s Inspections
Jessica Broomhead, Compass Greater NY LL and Anthony Ruperto, Ally Realty
Wasfiyah Talib, ERA Insight Realty Services and Raymond LaFlamme, U.S. Bank Home Mortgage
JP Endres and Joe Maymi, Howard Hanna Rand Realty
Vili Mirtcheva, Corcoran Legends Realty and Steven Reese, Christie’s International Real Estate
Layla Boyles, Century 21 Realty Center and Alex Delgado, Christie’s International Real Estate
The event includes an open bar, appetizers, a plated dinner, dessert and coffee and a DJ. The best part is that the audience can also join in the judging to choose the winning dance couple.
Arthur Murry Dance Centers of White Plains is providing free dance lessons for the seven couples.
Tickets are $175 per person and all proceeds benefit the Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation, which supports local charities and non-profit organizations throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit HGAR.com
