We are excited to invite you to participate in the BailaCura 2017, a community-driven event that seeks to raise $100,000 for cancer research. The BailaCura Gala will be held from 7pm-9pm on Saturday, September 23, 2017 in the newly built State Ballroom on North Carolina State University Campus.
Proceeds from the 2017 Gala will go to the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to support cancer research and patient care. Lineberger is the only public comprehensive cancer center in North Carolina and supports research and clinical trials for our community. Lineberger is on the edge of many breakthroughs in cancer research. They need the community’s support to accomplish this mission and help save our children’s lives.
Tickets and more information can be found on our website: https://www.bailacuranc.org/tickets/
U.S. Army veteran and cancer survivor, Matt Bergens, is organizing BailaCura 2017 – “UNC saved my life and now I want to help other people who come to UNC for treatment, especially the kids.” BailaCura is a non-profit organization of dancers committed to supporting cancer patients and their families during treatment. “My parents have their son, and I want other parents to see their kids beat cancer too.”
Our gala will be a one of a kind event as we are bring in dance performers from around the United States – Junior and Emily Alabi (recent competitors on America’s Got Talent) – to perform at the Gala. We have an hour of breathless performances that you will not want to miss.
