We are very excited to be hosting the first annual “Cha Cha for the Ta Tas” fundraiser on March 15th to support vulnerable women in our community. Proceeds benefit two amazing local non-profit organizations, and we’re hoping that you will help us get the word out!
Michele Dudley, Executive Director for Fashion and Compassion is competing in Charlotte’s Dancing with the Stars on April 6th at the Knight Theater to raise as much money as possible for Carolina Breast Friends. While tickets for Charlotte’s Dancing with the Stars are sold out, The Cha Cha for the Ta Tas gives people a sneak peek – an opportunity to dine, dance and support the cause.
The Cha Cha for the Ta Tas will be held on Thursday, March 15 at 6:30 PM at Project 658, 3646 Central Ave, Charlotte, NC 28205. Cocktail attire is suggested.
The evening will feature dinner & drinks, a dance exhibition & lesson by dance professionals Dmitriy & Gaby Solomakha, plus a sneak preview of Michele & Dmitriy’s upcoming Dancing With the Stars of Charlotte performance. Get out your sparkles – this is a night you do NOT want to miss!
Proceeds will benefit both Carolina Breast Friends and Fashion & Compassion. Michele sees a great deal of synergy between the two organizations. “Fashion and Compassion helps women overcome economic injustice both in Charlotte and Uganda, and Carolina Breast Friends supports women to overcome so many of the obstacles cancer creates. No woman should have to walk alone, whether it’s through addiction, abuse or cancer. I am dancing in honor of my Aunt Louise who died from breast cancer without the love and care that Carolina Breast Friends provides. We want to see all women thrive and overcome their challenges no matter what those challenges are.”
More information about our organizations can be found on their websites, but here is a brief summary for each.
