About the Event
MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center Foundation’s annual gala, Dancing for Our Stars (DFOS), has become one of the hottest philanthropic events in Long Beach.
Presented by the Don Temple Family Charitable Foundation, the much-anticipated DFOS “The Beat Goes On” Gala will take place at the Hyatt Regency Long Beach on June 25, 2022 and will benefit MemorialCare Heart & Vascular Institute. The event will feature dancers from the community who have either been personally touched by heart disease, or have a desire to support leading-edge heart and vascular care. Each featured dancer has a moving story to share with you through their performance and your support is both meaningful to them and pivotal to the growth of our Heart & Vascular Institute. Each dancer will partner with a professional dancer or significant other to perform an enthralling dance to an upbeat, popular song from any era of their choice. Supporters and event attendees will have an opportunity to support their favorite dancer(s) by “voting with their dollars” prior to and during the live event as dancers vie for the coveted DFOS Champion Crystal Award.
Please note that TICKETS TO THE LIVE EVENT ARE CURRENTLY SOLD OUT, however, Livestream tickets + sponsorship/underwriting/program advertising opportunities are still available. Additionally, all previously purchased sponsorships, ads, and tickets have automatically transferred to this rescheduled event. We look forward to celebrating this fun and memorable evening with you!
