It’s that time of year again! Local celebs have been practicing and are ready to show off what they’ve got for the Kidney Foundation of AZ at this year’s Dancing with the Stars AZ. It was only 2 years ago that I myself was backstage teasing my hair and slipping into my sequins- I must say, it’s a lot less nerve wracking to be in the audience this year.
The theme of the 2020 fundraiser is An Evening in Eden
On Saturday Feb. 29th the event will take place at the JW Marriot at Desert Ridge- one of my most favorite properties in Phoenix! A Cocktail Reception kicks off the evening followed by dinner and then the show. Each celebrity is paired with a professional dancer and has been trainings for months to perform. The dancers will pick their music and style of dance ranging from swing and Latin to waltz and hip hop. One of my favorite aspects of the event is the costumes. It’s SO fun to see everything come to life.
Proceeds from this event will support the patient services, programs and mission of the National Kidney Foundation of Arizona. They are committed to the prevention of kidney disease through awareness, education and research to improve the quality of life for Arizonans with kidney disease.
