Jazzercise raises funds for Make-A-Wish

Jazzercise recently joined forces with the Golden State Warriors to raise money for Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area. The event raised $77,319 to support the efforts of Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

South Lake Tahoe Jazzercise instructors Shelly Higgins, Dana Dose, Jodi Stewart, Sherry Baiocchi and 13 of their customers participated, raising $8,500.

“This event is always so much fun,” Higgins said. “What makes it really special is we have fun performing at the game while doing something beneficial for the community.”

Two hundred and seventy-five Jazzercise instructors and customers collected pledges in order to perform a specially choreographed dance routine for the Golden State Warriors halftime show. The event took place March 22 at the Oracle Arena where the Golden State Warriors played San Antonio.
