CRESTVIEW, Fla. – The Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Crestview is hosting the 5th Annual Dance for Life, an evening of ballroom dance to benefit Covenant Hospice, on Saturday, May 16 at 7 p.m. in the Crestview High School Auditorium. The event will feature amateur and professional dancers from across the Emerald Coast.

David Colon, owner of the local Fred Astaire Dance Studio, said, “Dancing is truly a celebration of life, and Covenant Hospice is all about quality of life, helping patients and their families make the most of every moment. It is such a worthy cause and a rewarding partnership for both organizations to come together for Dance for Life.”unnamed

Advance tickets are $15 for general admission and $30 for VIP admission, which will include premier reserved seating for the show and an exclusive post-event cocktail party. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $35 for VIP admission at the door the night of the event.

“While we may not have celebrity performers flying in for the event as we have had in the past, I think attendees will be quite impressed with the amazing talent displayed by the professionals and students right here in our community,” explained Colon. “It also allows us to return a greater portion of the event proceeds to Covenant.”

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at Fred Astaire Dance Studio, 301 N. Main St. in Crestview, or by phone at (850) 682-1455.

Special events such as Dance for Life help fund Covenant Hospice’s special programs in Okaloosa and Walton counties. These programs include bereavement services, children’s support programs, spiritual support services and charity care. Covenant Hospice accepts patients regardless of ability to pay. In 2014, the organization provided over $1.7 million in care for uninsured or under-insured patients facing a terminal illness.

Covenant Hospice is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing comprehensive, compassionate services to patients and loved ones during times of life-limiting illnesses.
