"Last year, Dance With Our Stars was a huge hit, we sold out and raised more than $40,000 for the ARC and $40,000 for the Rideout Health Foundation." said Carol Ramirez, RH VP, Community Relations, Foundation and Marketing. "Everyone we talk to about it is so excited. We're expecting that this year we'll have another sell-out. Dance With Our Stars is extremely important in helping the Foundation and the ARC raise money," she said. "Especially with the current economy and funding cutbacks."
