A charity dance event in memory of Sara Bissell is being held Saturday to benefit Carolina Breast Friends and the Pink House.
While “Dancing with the Stars of Charlotte for the Pink House” is sold out, supporters are able to vote for their favorite star by donating online at carolinabreastfriends.org.
Carolina Breast Friends has partnered with Charlotte Ballroom and Mark Ballas Dance and Performing Arts to host the competition, which is at Blumenthal Center for the Performing Arts. Local stars are being matched with professional dance instructors for the show.
The event honors Sara Bissell, wife of influential Charlotte developer H.C. “Smoky” Bissell. She died in 2009 after an 11-year battle with cancer. Carolina Breast Friends and the Pink House help women at all stages of breast cancer. Staff reports
