Mesa and Phoenix dignitaries, alumni cheerleaders and NFL players, local business and military leaders will strap on their dancing shoes and partner with Arthur Murray Dance Studios dancers at 7 p.m. Oct. 8 to try to raise $100,000 for a nonprofit outpatient clinic.
Tickets for "Dancing with Community Leaders" at the Mesa Arts Center are $35, $50, $75, and for VIP tickets, $125, which includes a pre-show reception with the stars.
Proceeds will benefit Mary's Mission Development, 736 N. Country Club, a 501(c)3 clinic that offers behavioral counseling and therapeutic support services to adults and youth, as well as peer support programs for U.S. Armed Forces personnel. The fundraiser also is intended to raise awareness of the need for expanded behavioral health services in the Phoenix area and to help the clinic expand programs to include hosting family functions, literacy programs and youth activities.
