Salsa Festival - Dancing with the Stars Fundraiser

What does Girl Scouts and Salsa have in common?  
In this salsa-twist on the hit TV show, local "stars" are paired up with the region's best salsa instructors to dance for charity! They have nine weeks of rehearsals to prepare for the showdown at the Oxnard Salsa Festival on July 26-27.

In addition to competing in front of a panel of judges at the Festival, the stars and their partners are dancing for local charities.  YOU can "Vote" by making donations in support of our Dancing Champion and Girl Scouts.

CLICK TO VOTE! Each $1 (donation) = 1 Vote
GSCCC will participate, with Tammie Helmuth - Board Chair, as our Dancing Champion.  More information to follow; we will keep you posted on her progress and hope you will join us in supporting Tammie to reach the goal of raising $15,000 to benefit girls in our council.

With every dollar you donate to Team Tammie, 100% of your donation proceeds will support programs and serve over 15,000 members in the council.  Your donations help GSCCC provide the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to all girls, supporting the Mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
