"Dance Lompoc" Event
Congratulations to Dr. Niki Sandoval!
The Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau would like to thank those that supported their “Dancing with the Stars” style fundraiser on Saturday, March 4, 2017. The 'Dance Lompoc' event benefitted the Chamber and five other local non-profit organizations chosen by the participating dancers. The participants were working with professional dance instructors and they competed for the mirror ball trophy and the title of "People's Choice," all while raising money for their selected non-profit. Each dollar donated in their name counted as a vote, and for every ticket sold, $5 went toward the selected dancer and their non-profit. The dance studios that provided professional instruction were Garcia Dance Studio, Lompoc School of Dance and The Alley Project.
Congratulations to Dr. Niki Sandoval, who won the mirror ball trophy and "People's Choice" by raising $2,396 for her chosen nonprofit Companion Animal Placement Assistance (CAPA). In total, the event raised over $3,000 for the non-profit organizations chosen by the dancers: Coast Valley Treatment Center, Valley Haven Adult Day Program, and Lompoc Civic Theatre. Masson Blow was chosen as the judges' pick. Both Dr. Sandoval and Masson worked with Marco from The Alley Project.
“We are thrilled that we had the support of the Santa Barbara Foundation, the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians and Sunset Auto Center with their sponsorship of the event, along with the numerous donors who helped make this event a success.” said Chelsea Cochran, Communications & Program Director for the Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau. “We have already had prospective dancers reach out to us to express their desire to get involved and with a few changes based on the feedback we received, I think you can count on a bigger, better Dance Lompoc event next year!”
