Ballroom, Bossa Nova or Begin the Beguine
Dancing with the Kansas City Stars 2014 raised the roof and created a groundswell of support for students at Cristo Rey Kansas City. Honorary chairs, Dr. Gregory and Cathy Fox, warmed the hearts of more than 1,000 guests by sharing their personal experiences of working with students at Cristo Rey.
... Just Dance!
First place honors and Judges' Choice Award went to Ryane Delka, Co-President, Silpada Designs, who tangoed with Jesse Lopez. Second place went to Larkin O'Keefe, CEO and owner of MedTrak Services who disco-danced with partner, Toni Dodd; and, Jenny Murphy, NonProfit Connect's Rising Star of Philanthropy, took third place dancing the Jive with partner, Wil Oden. Rounding out the all-star line up were: Stann Tate, Dr. Valerie Chow, Chris Hernandez, Rick Jones, Kevin Ryan and their Allegro Ballroom partners. The 2014 "All-Star" line-up — and the Cristo Rey student performers — shined so bright.
Dancing with the Kansas City Stars helps to fund the gap between what Cristo Rey students earn working one day per week at their Corporate Work Study internships and the cost of their college-prep education.
