Last year over 200 Brandon area residents attended the first ever Holiday Charity Ball for a night full of entertainment and the holiday spirit of giving. A first-year event, it was the collaboration of Tatyana Frost, owner of the Way 2 Dance Studio, and Bob Savage, dance student and owner of Brandon-based Savage IT Consulting – with a dream to combine their love of dance and giving back to the community.
In less than two months, both organizers found a venue (The Regent) and competed to see who could raise the most money for Toys 4 Tots, a charity both have supported for many years.
In the end, both organizers came up dead even in the amount of sponsorships and money raised – a whopping total of $17,349. Both were thrilled with the results. “Nothing like a friendly competitive challenge for such a great cause,” said Frost.
This year, the duo have upped their goal to $28,000 with many sponsors and guests happy to return. Diamond Sponsors to date include: The Way 2 Dance, AEA, Savage Consulting, Grace C. Lewis CPA, Florida Yogurt –Nature’s Table and many more. To view a full list of sponsors, click here .
