Ribbons of Hope Click to Experience the Dance for the Cure Annual Fundraiser

Dance for the Cure

Dance for the Cure's annual fundraiser, Ribbons of Hope, is a delightful evening of dinner, basket raffles and a true celebration of the power and connection of women. Over $400,000 has been raised to date which has gone directly to local families who are struggling financially from the effects of their fight with cancer. Success of this magnitude continues with the unending support of our volunteers and the generosity of our donors.

Ribbons of Hope

Hosted at the Marriott in Bridgewater, NJ, attendees to Ribbons of Hope first got their photos taken on the pink carpet upon arrival, and then were immediately treated to a gallery of 217 gorgeously crafted baskets, the contents of which were collected by a dedicated team of volunteers for months in advance of the event.

"Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart." Elizabeth Andrew
"Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance." Lynne Jordan - Recipient, 1957 - 2012

Dance for the Cure is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization committed to the prevention and cure of breast cancer through the celebration of dance. We are a 100% volunteer organization. All monies raised are distributed directly to families in Somerset, Middlesex and Hunterdon, NJ counties who have found themselves in difficult and unforeseen circumstances.

It takes a whole lot of people to pull off an event like this! Thank you Marriott staff (and especially Clifton)!
The highlight of the evening is bidding on the beautiful baskets!

Happy faces of basket winners!

Young women from the Kathleen Academy of Dance support the event by performing a lyrical dance to "I Believe." Members of the Hillsborough High School Lady Raiders and Bridgewater-Raritan High School Key Club were basket runners, and many other community organizations aid Dance for The Cure each year. We are very grateful for their support!

And everyone gets a Goodie Bag!
