Young dancer to hold benefit fundraiser


In her efforts to continue to develop in her craft, local dancer DianaStarr Raynell will be holding a fundraiser to help cover expenses for two upcoming dance intensives. This summer, she will be learning at Anthony Burrell Center for Dance in Atlanta and Joffrey Ballet School/Cirque Du Soleil in Vegas. DianaStarr currently dances for Pacific Northwest Ballet in Seattle and has been dancing since the age of 2 years old.

On Monday, June 17, come to Love Centered Church and Outreach Ministries at 3501 S. 58thSt. at 7 p.m. to see her perform, and enjoy guests Lion of Judah Dance Team, Vision Step Team and Gabriella (a.k.a. Gabby Jones). The event will be for one hour and all proceeds go toward her training and other needs. No donation is too small! Tell your friends and family to help join you in supporting this tiny dancer!

“This year was the first year I was able to audition for summer dance intensives and there were two that I really wanted to attend,” DianaStarr states on her GoFundMe page. “I want to raise money to travel to Atlanta and Vegas for my trainings. My mom is a single parent and makes so many sacrifices for me and I want to help her take some of the load off.”
