A big thank you to everyone who donated towards Monika’s fundraising efforts benefitting Big Brothers Big Sisters of El Paso.

I want to take a moment to thank everyone who bought a ticket to come see me dance at Dance For Kids’ Sake at the Plaza Theatre on Saturday, November 9, 2019.

The journey has been a wonderful one but I couldn’t have done any of it without the support of some really wonderful people including my dance partner Edward Gallardo III, friends and our gracious sponsors including:

Jaime Barba from the UTEP Dinner Theatre Costume Department for lending us the costumes for our performance.

  • El Paso Sun City Pride
  • KISS-FM
  • Antonio Williams Esquire
  • Henry Chavez
  • OM Hair Salon
  • Craig Roberts
  • The Honorable Judge Gina Palafox
  • Joel Anguiano of Viva El Paso
  • Sunny Muniz at Hilites Salon off Airway
  • Eg3Events
  • EPIC Night Club

Our combined fundraising efforts will help the 200+ at-risk children on the Big Brothers Big Sisters of El Paso’s waiting list who need and want a mentor. Simple friendship with a mentor is proven to help kids stay in school, off drugs, and away from the wrong crowd, dealing with bullying, depression, and harassment while boosting their self-esteem.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of El Paso is a local non-profit organization that works to pair a child with an older “brother or sister” as a mentorship program to help children in at-risk homes or those that simply need an extra one. Learn more at facebook.com/bbbsep and bbbsep.org.
