The Arc Seeks Participants for Virtual Dancing For A Cause

The Arc of East Ascension’s 2020 Dancing For A Cause fundraising event will be held virtually this year. Due to the transition, The Arc of East Ascension is calling for participants.

The event raises funds and awareness for The Arc of East Ascension, a nonprofit organization that supports individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. For the first time ever, The Arc of East Ascension is accepting virtual submissions of you, your children, grandchildren, coworkers and friends to contribute to their cause.

Participants will be required to make a donation of $25 and submit a 30- to 45- second video showing their best dance moves. Get creative with your choice of costume, song and location, while remembering to keep it family-friendly. 

This year’s fundraiser is a four-week competition held from October 5-31. The deadline to register is September 21.

Due to this year’s partnership with Baton Rouge Parents Magazine, the videos will be posted on their website for the community to vote for their favorite dancers. 

For more information, call Sharon Morris at (225) 621-2005.
