About Us

for another spectacular sparkling night!
14TH Annual

March 8th, 2019!

Dancing With Chicago Celebrities is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity.  We founded our event in 2006; we became an independent charity in 2012. Since our inception we've been focused on one thing: raising money to fight breast cancer in the Chicagoland area through the power and partnership of ballroom dancing. Each year we bring together hundreds of generous people for one night of dancing. 

Together - and one dollar at a time - we've raised and donated more than $2.5 million (as of 2018) to the fight against breast cancer and at our most recent event in 2019 we've added and additional $457,000 to our total. 
We are a 501(c)(3) organization.  Our federal tax ID is 45-5192121.  Donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. 
Please consult your tax advisor for further information.

If you have any questions about the charity or about our special night in the ballroom (or our other special events), please contact us at info@amdwcc.org or call us at 1-630-699-6327.
