The 1st Annual World Latin Dance Cup is coming to San Diego this week, December 14th through 18th. A percentage of day-of ticket sales will benefit the Parkinson’s Association of San Diego (PASD).
What’s the connection between the World Latin Dance Cup and the Parkinson’s Association? Larry Strauss, a Hollywood actor and dancer who is living with Parkinson’s disease, and event producer Albert Torres have been friends for over 18 years; the two appeared in the feature film “Out to Sea,” starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Mathau. An Orange County resident, Strauss continues to use dance as a way to fund-raise for Parkinson’s programs. When San Diego was announced as the location for the event, Strauss approached Torres about connecting the event with the Parkinson’s Association of San Diego. And the rest, as they say, is history.
When you attend the event, look for the PASD information table to find out more about our programs and services, and general information about Parkinson’s disease. Additionally, artist Jenifer Broomberg will display some of her work, with a percentage of her sales benefiting PASD.
