Dancing with the South Florida Stars Raises $30,000

WILTON MANORS—The 6th annual fundraiser “Dancing with the South Florida Stars” raised a record-breaking $30,000 in cash and advertising for two South Florida charities, SunServe and The Pride Center at Equality Park.

Bobby Blair, speaking for the Wirld Foundation that produced the event, said, “Brian Neal and I are excited to identify other non-profits that serve the initiatives of LGBT homeless youth, and continue to provide HIV positive individuals with health and wellness programs.  Our sole purpose is to give back to the community that we serve.”

Both SunServe and The Pride Center will receive $4,000 in cash as well as $11,000 worth of advertising in Next South Florida magazine and Florida Agenda newspaper as a result of the event.

Mark Ketcham, Executive Director of SunServe said, “We are very thrilled to have this support for our LGBGT Homeless Youth Assistance Program and glad everyone had fun raising this money.”

Chris Dunham of Dunham Insurance in Wilton Manors will join Bobby Blair on the Main Stage at the upcoming Stonewall Pride Festival on Saturday June 18 at 3:30 pm for an photo op and official check presentation.
