Check Out Our Gala Dress Rehearsal!

Welcome to our virtual Gala Dress Rehearsal!
On April 25 (the original date of our gala), we provided a sneak peek on Facebook at our Dynamic Duos, who will be performing live at our “There’s No Business Like Share Business” gala which has been rescheduled to August 8. Each video is wonderfully creative and delightful in its own unique way – and they did their best to practice social distancing, wash/sanitize their hands and wear PPE. We are incredibly grateful to these 14 community leaders who took time away from their businesses which are working so hard to serve our community. To our Dynamic Duos: thank you for your time, for your humor, for your dance moves and for your support of Share!

If you’d like to support your favorite Dynamic Duo, just click on their link (which is next to their name above each video) to make a donation. The funds raised today will be tallied and added to their fundraising totals. The winning team will be announced on Aug. 8 at the postponed gala and we hope you can join us then! Now, let’s start the rehearsal!
