Jordyn Trammell chosen as Crowd Favorite at Dancers Against Cancer Gala
From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE — The Dancers Against Cancer Gala was held at the Truusville Civic Center on Saturday and raised $24,000 in the fight against cancer. The event, originated by Emily Lombardo and produced by numerous community volunteers, grew substantially in year two.
The gala is highlighted by the entertainment provided by local dancers, many of which are dancing in honor or memory of a loved one impacted by cancer.
Dancing to “Jealous of the Angels” in loving memory of her aunt and uncle Deana and Neal Hemphill, Trammell’s moving performance brought many in the audience to tears.
“It was a very emotional win for her and well deserved,” Lombardo said. “She showed the true emotions of Dancers Against Cancer and why we hold the event. Her dance impacted everyone who saw her performance, and she lived our motto of ‘Never too young to make a difference.’ We are very proud of Jordyn and her beautiful dance!”
Trammell received a pizza party for her friends from Marco’s Pizza of Trussville for her winning performance in front of a packed Civic Center audience.
The 2020 DAC Gala is set for February 22.
