The Sue Weaver C.A.U.S.E., a group promoting Consumer Awareness of Unsafe Service Employment, is gearing up for their fundraising gala, called Dancing for C.A.U.S.E., to take place on Saturday, March 27, at Royal Affairs Ballroom in Lewisville.
The event will benefit the non-profit organization founded by Flower Mound resident Lucia Bone in memory of her sister, Cathy Sue Weaver, who was sexually assaulted and murdered in her suburban Orlando, FL home in 2001 by an air conditioning duct cleaner with a criminal record employed by a subcontractor for a large department store chain.
Organizers of the event said that the Mayors of Flower Mound, Highland Village and Lewisville have volunteered as captains of their respective city’s dancing team and will be competing for votes as they dance on the evening of the gala.
The city that collects the most votes and raises the most money will be named Dancing Champions of 2010 and be presented with a traveling trophy and have exclusive bragging rights for one year.
“A win-win for all…the Mayors and their team learn to dance and perform for the community and C.A.U.S.E. is one step further to its goal,” said Highland Village Mayor Dianne Costa.
The Sue Weaver C.A.U.S.E. is working to ensure criminal background checks are required on all workers sent to peoples’ homes, as well as educating consumers about who they allow into their homes.
