“Dancing With the Docs” to Support Cancer Wellness

HYANNIS –Nine local physicians will put on their dancing shoes on Saturday to compete in support of cancer services.

“Dancing With the Docs Cape Cod” will be held from 6-10 p.m. at Willowbend Country Club in Mashpee and is a fundraiser for Cape Wellness Collaborative (CWC).

The event is sponsored by the Collaborative and Cape Cod Healthcare.

The physicians are paired with local professional dancers and have been practicing for months, honing their skills.

Physicians competing in the event include Jennifer Crook, Kathryn Dalton, Jose Fernandez and Mary Ann Harwood.

“The doctors are very excited, the hospital’s excited, the community, it’s really pulling everyone together which was my goal in the first place, was to get the whole community together,” said Dalton.

A trio of judges at the formal, black tie event will score the dancers and their votes, combined with public votes online or via texts, will determine the mirror ball winner.

“The event is a black tie, swanky gala and you’ll see the professional dancers with the doctors, that’ll be at the beginning of it,” said event coordinator Kelly Tammaro.

Cape Wellness Collaborative was founded in 2014 and began serving clients in 2015.

The non-profit provides free complementary, integrative therapies to people with cancers.

Viewers can vote online at dwtdcapecod.com or can text CCDOCS to 1-855-735-2437.

Votes are $10 each and benefit CWC.

Tickets to attend the event are $250 and can be ordered online at dwtdcapecod.com.
