Since 2009, Dancing with Vero’s Stars has used a fun community activity to raise money for the Indian River County Healthy Start Coalition and the Riverside Theatre. On May 12, 2018, the 10th anniversary Dancing with Vero’s Stars event will take place. Our very own Dr. Giuliana Diaz Jones was chosen as one of the coming year’s stars! Dr. Diaz Jones has always been a star in our eyes, and we’re so excited to see the work she does over the next several months. She was lucky enough to be partnered with last year’s winning dance instructor, Joe Tessier, so we have our fingers crossed for Dr. Diaz Jones! Don’t hesitate to give our team a call to find out more about this exciting community event and how you can help!
Dancing with Vero’s Stars is an annual community event. Like the television talent competition show, Dancing with the Stars, this program pairs up stars in the Vero community with professional dance instructors. Over the course of several months, the Vero stars and their instructors will train for a one night performance. The gala event itself will include dances from all of the Vero stars, cocktails, and dinner. It’s a fun night to showcase the talented men and women in our community and raise funds for great causes.
Indian River County used to have an extremely high infant mortality rate, and free educational programs, parental resources, and other services provided by the Healthy Start Coalition are designed to decrease the number of annual infant deaths in our county. No matter what insurance or financial situations are like for new parents, these free programs make it possible for them to get the help they need to ensure their child’s life is off to a healthy start. Additionally, the program provides funding for the Riverside Theatre. They perform nearly 300 shows each year on three stages, and have one of the only free-standing children’s theatres in the state.
Dr. Diaz Jones and her husband, Dr. Adam Jones, have a young, growing family, and they know just how important it is for every parent to get the education and support they need. Dr. Diaz Jones is passionate about helping young mothers, fathers, infants, and children, get the help and care they need today to make their future bright.
Come back over the coming months to hear more about Dr. Diaz Jones’ progress, and get the latest pictures and updates on the Dancing with Vero’s Stars program. If you would like to donate to show your support for Dr. Diaz Jones, the Indian River County Healthy Start Coalition, and the Riverside Theatre, every dollar will count as one vote and proceeds will be used to do great work in our community. You can also purchase tickets to attend the event and show your support for Dr. Diaz Jones and all of the talented dancers and Vero stars.
