The second annual Women Palante’s Dance-A-Thon fundraiser will once again rock the Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart on Sunday, May 15, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.

This time the Dance-A-Thon will add more rhythms to the mix, with expert dance instructors, food stalls, food trucks, a fun photo booth as well as a prize raffle from local sponsors.

The event is planning to raise over $7,000 to support the Women Palante’s programs of care, education and advocacy for Latina women entrepreneurs.

“This year, we are joining forces with local companies and organizations such as Sport&Health, Ignite, Arepazone, Kofemi Grub n’Go, among others, and co-organizing with the Amigas Group of Stone Ridge to raise money for our programs,” Yurani Sandoval, Women Palante’s CEO and Founder, mentioned, “the Dance-A-Thon is a great way to bring people together, have a fantastic time, and fundraise for vulnerable Latina women.”

“The power of the Dance-A-Thon is about creating awareness too,” Sandoval added, “Latina women are underrepresented and they lack the right tools to become entrepreneurs; this fundraiser gives women —especially single moms— a chance to launch their businesses, improve the ones they already have and get their feet off the ground,” Sandoval concluded.

Women Palante’s distinctiveness is to bring a wellness component into their business-related-programs, so women can have more confidence, improve their self-esteem and be able to thrive and succeed.
