You probably know Aaron Grossman as the CEO of Alliance Solutions Group. He’s also an entrepreneur, wrestler, recruiter and a … salsa dancer?
On Saturday, Oct. 18, Aaron will dance the salsa to benefit Friends of CASA of Geauga County in its 2014 Dancing for Kids fundraiser.
Six local celebrities were selected to compete in the Dancing for Kids contest. Each celebrity was assigned a dance style and will spend about 3 months training with a professional dancer before the competition. The dancers will then be scored by a panel of judges.
If you know Aaron, you might be thinking there’s no way he will win the dance competition. But the good news for Aaron is the final winner will be determined by a combination of the judges’ scoring and his fundraising efforts.
To see Aaron dance, you must register to attend the event. Tickets are $80 and include a seated dinner, three drink tickets, a live auction and dancing. To purchase tickets, click here.
If you can’t attend, you can still help by donating to Aaron’s campaign on CrowdRise. He’s aiming to raise $20,000 before the competition. Click here to support Aaron’s campaign.
What does Friends of CASA of Geauga County do to help kids?
There are thousands of kids that enter juvenile court as victims of abuse and neglect. CASA volunteers, or Court Appointed Special Advocates are volunteers who represent the “best interest” of a child when family problems such as substance abuse, mental health issues and domestic violence result in child abuse and neglect. Friends of CASA helps support victims of abuse and neglect by paying for necessities not afforded by them— things like summer camps, braces, athletic shoes and pool passes. Things that go a long way to making them feel less like victims and more like every other kid.
Friends of CASA of Geauga County is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. 99 percent of the monies it raises are used to support its mission. For more information, visit the Friends of CASA website.
