We are asking for your support of this event by attending and inviting friends to attend! A limited amount of tickets are available so please buy your tickets early to avoid a huge case of FOMO, support a good friend and dance for Dianne. Last year's event sold out, so don't hesitate!

In the spring of 2016 Dianne was diagnosed with a rare disease called Niemann-Picks Type C. Niemann-Picks is a very rare genetic disorder that causes an inability to transport cholesterol and lipids inside of cells. This causes damage to the affected tissues including areas of the brain. Side effects of the disease include mobility impairment and cognitive delays which cause difficulty for patients to lead normal functioning lives. For more information on Niemann-Picks please visit: http://rarediseases.org/rare-diseases/niemann-pick-disease-type-c/

It was a long and difficult journey to the diagnosis and Dianne and her family know there are many journeys still to take to fight this head on but she’s still a young 60 and has a lot of good living left to do! So it is our hope to raise some funds and help alleviate the financial stress that comes with living with a disease and being unable to work, and give her the freedom to focus on her health and wellbeing.

Last year's event was very sucessful raising over $20,000 for Dianne and we couldn't have done it without you! This year, we are simply taking proceeds from ticket sales and a 50/50 the night of to support Dianne. The need to provide financial support for Dianne will be a continued issue for Dianne's family and therefore, we see value in hosting this event once again. Not to mention last year's was such a blast.

Since last year's event Dianne has utilized the funds to support the payment of medication not covered by AISH, personal expenses and purchasing transit passes for Access Calgary. Proceeds from this year's event will continue to support Dianne in these ways.


THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!

AND CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU!
