Chamber Members Dance for a Cause
Dancing with the Burlington Stars is an annual event put on by the Burlington Chapter of Relay for Life. This year in particular is special to the BACC, as three of our members are participating.
Kelly Pappas, BACC Board of Director, and Co-Chair of the BACC Government Affairs Committee, feels "personally connected to the cause", having family members who have dealt with cancer. "I was proud to help provide financial support and visibility for this cause."
Ken Gordon, Massachusetts State Representative and BACC Member is "honored to be included as a contestant", stating, "I have been moved by the commitment and dedication of Burlington's Relay for Life Committee for years now. It has been a privilege to participate in their events. This organization reflects the spirit of overwhelming generosity and commitment of the people of Burlington and its business community towards causes such as stomping out cancer in our lifetime."
Beverlee Vidoli, BACC Member, made the decision to get involved this year because she is "dedicating this dance to two very close friends; one of whom lost their battle, while the other is still fighting . The work that Relay for Life does for cancer fundraising is worth all the time and effort needed to put on this event."
