Dancing with the Bars, a Valley fundraiser that was operated by SWAY Events for eight years and acquired by one•n•ten following the 2015 season, is undergoing a facelift in honor of its 10th anniversary.

The 2017 event, now named Dancing for one•n•ten, is a ballroom dancing and fundraising competition that will take place Aug. 13 at the Tempe Center for the Arts. For the second consecutive year, all proceeds will benefit one•n•ten, a support organization that’s been serving LGBTQ youth, ages 14 to 24, since 1993.

Meet the 2017 Dancing for one•n•ten contestants:

Jen Moreland

Occupation: The Cash Nightclub & Lounge Manager

Sponsor: The Cash Nightclub & Lounge

Dance Partner: Shawn Nerdahl

Being a Bar Manager at a popular hot spot in town lends someone to possess unique skills such as multi-tasking, tenacity, and community engagement. Jen is looking forward to using all these skills (and her experience as a child ballerina) as she strives for the coveted win at this year’s Dancing for one•n•ten event. Having been an attendee at many of the past “Dancing for” events, Jen and her dance partner Shawn are proud to represent The Cash Nightclub & Lounge and support one•n•ten’s efforts to serve the LGBTQ+ youth in our community!
