It’s not too late to buy tickets for Dancing for a Cause, a fundraiser benefiting Community Opportunities — The Arc of East Ascension.

The event, set for July 11, at Lamar-Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales, features locals dancing with dance pros and instructors.

Whitney Vann and Mark Dearman will serve as hosts for the fundraiser.

Organizer La Donna Sanders, executive secretary for the nonprofit agency, said Monday is the last day for businesses or groups to purchase sponsorships for the event, which is patterned after the popular “Dancing with the Stars” television show.

The Arc provides services for residents with intellectual and physical disabilities.

Tickets are $25 in advance and are available at LeBlanc’s Stores in Gonzales, Prairieville and Duplessis, and at the Arc, 1122 S.E. Ascension Complex Blvd.

Tickets also are available online at
