Dance Dream & Inspire matches five local celebrities with professional ballroom dancers to perform live, choreographed routines ranging from the Viennese waltz to the Argentine tango. The annual gala benefits Embrace Families, the tri-county area’s leading nonprofit organization overseeing foster care, adoption and other services for childhood victims of abuse and neglect.

  • Sarah Hohman, Executive Director of Market Strategy, AdventHealth
  • Joe Kepner, Sports Anchor, WFTV
  • Anna Vasquez, Account Manager, IPRG
