We are proud supporters of PADS of Elgin, which provides safe shelter, support services and advocacy to homeless individuals in Dundee, Elgin and Hanover Townships. Charles Falls has been on the board for several years, and we love to help them with invitations and programs for their biggest fundraising event of the year, Stars Dance for PADS of Elgin. At this event, couples from the Elgin area learn dances from area dance instructors and compete (think Dancing with the Stars, but with more everyday type people dancing).
This year, after taking dance lessons three to four times a week, for almost two months, from the very talented and very dedicated Levi Grant of Vargo’s Dance in downtown Geneva, IL, our very own Charles Falls and his wife Barbara graced the stage with a rather endearing Foxtrot and Lindy Hop. Charles and Barbara highly recommend Levi and Jamie Vargos to anyone — just ask and you’ll see. For now though, watch Charles, complete with a top hat, and Barbara, complete with class and style, wow the audience and earn perfect 10s (at least from his tables of friends, family, and colleagues).
Although voting has closed, you can still make a contribution to PADS in this dances honor here. Thanks, Charles, for the hard work you put in preparing, for inviting us to support you in your passion for PADS, and for entertaining us for 2 minutes. Also, don’t quit your day job.
