Each year, all net proceeds from our event are donated to deserving charity organizations doing great work to fight breast cancer in the Chicagoland area. As of this week, our efforts over the last seven years have raised more then $1,000,000 in the fight against breast cancer.
This year we are extremely proud that the primary beneficiary of the net proceeds of the Ninth Annual Dancing With Chicago Celebrities is the Northwestern Memorial Foundation. The funds raised from all our dancing will be directed to an innovative research effort supporting a breast cancer vaccine trial (after all, we're really committed to stopping this disease!). We initially funded the start--up of this trial in 2013 and we are delighted that it is enrolling patients and beginning the work of the actual trial. Additional funds raised this year will be directed to Imerman Angels, a wonderful group in Chicago that matches individuals fighting cancer with cancer survivors who have been there before. These relationships create the foundation of a tremendous support network, with people taking the time to help each other, one person at a time. 24% of IA's current "mentor angels" are breast cancer survivors and in 2013 alone, more than four hundred people battling breast cancer have been part of an Angels' match-up.
Every year, we fund organizations in the Chicagoland area who are devoted to preventative research, support and providing access to care; we are proud of our financial contribution to these fine groups and their work on the front lines of this battle. We are delighted that the funds raised stay in our community. We are committed to maximize the impact of every dollar we raise by running an extremely efficient organization through the efforts of dedicated volunteers.
We are once again privileged to welcome back to Chicago professional judges Nick and Lena Kosovich from ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" andSnow Urbin from "So You Think You Can Dance."
Many of our sparkling alumni are also returning this year, including via satellite '06 Champion Rick Bayless, world-renowned chef from Frontera Grill, and live and in person, '08 Champion Dina Bair from WGN, and scheduled to also appear are '10 Champion Val Warner from Windy City Live, our 2012 MVP Kim Vatis from NBC-5 as well as '12 Champion, former Chicago Bear Desmond Clark.
There's really nothing like it anywhere else. Walk the pink carpet with us!
