Dancing for Big Buddy is a fundraising event for the Big Buddy Program of Baton Rouge and features many of our community’s leaders and prominent citizens as they present their ballroom dance performances on the event night, April 26, 2014 at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center on LSU’s campus, the birth site of the Big Buddy Program. Big Buddy encourages the children we serve to step out of their comfort zone and experience something new. Dancing for Big Buddy takes our local “stars” out of their comfort zone and throws each of them into the spotlight….the end result is an incredible evening of entertainment for a great cause.
