The Marr Team is excited to be the headline sponsor for an upcoming charity event, Dancing with Dominic, coming up this Saturday, April 1st! We are honored to sponsor and help organize this event and would like to extend the invitation to you all and your families to join us! Details below:
Join us for our annual Dancing with Dominic event for some family fun and to help support a great cause! Dominic is a 7 year old little boy who lives in Prosper Texas and attends 1st grade at Baker Elementary. Dominic suffers with Hunter Syndrome, a rare progressive genetic condition affecting 1 in 150,000 males. There is currently NO CURE and without a cure or treatment, Dominic may not live to be an adult.
Dancing with Dominic 2017 is a family-friendly fundraiser to raise awareness of Hunter Syndrome and raise funds for research. In the past few years, Dominic’s family and other families across the country have raised over $500,000 towards finding better treatments or a cure but a least another million dollars are needed to bring the research to a clinical trial in 2018!! The one-time treatment, called gene therapy, is already proving to be effective in another clinical trial therefore bringing it to Hunter Syndrome patients is close to becoming a reality.
Dancing with Dominic is more than just a dance – it’s a family event that includes dinner, entertainment, kids’ activities and a silent auction. Amazing Caterers and Events, LLC is providing a buffet dinner; Cadette Girl Scout Troop #7229 is planning the kids’ activities, such as face painting and arts/crafts; JC Bell Photography is providing a photo booth; and DJ LTMB is providing the music. Performers include the Prosper High School Talonettes and Reynolds Middle School Eagle Darlings, and of course, Dominic!! Silent auction items include, FC Dallas tickets, a Michael Irvin autographed football, an autographed Dallas Stars Hockey Puck, Amazing Jakes all-inclusive day passes, Lularoe, Stella and Dot, Mary Kay, Advocare, Lipsense, Younique, and much more.
We love to give back to our community and we are thankful to have another opportunity to give back by being a part of this event for our favorite superhero, Dominic. We hope to see you on Saturday!
