The Oxnard Salsa Festival will include one of our own this year.
KEYT/KCOY/KKFX reporter Alys Martinez is participating in the festival’s “Dancing With Our Community Stars” competition.
She has to learn to salsa dance in in just a few weeks and perform a routine with her professional partner.
A big part of the competition is raising money for people in need.
Alys has chosen Santa Barbara based Dream Foundation as her charity.
Dream Foundation is a national organization that serves terminally ill adults and their families by granting end of life dreams.
“This organization never turns down a qualified applicant,” she said. “Dream Foundation is seeing a big increase in people reaching out to have their dreams fulfilled and it needs funds to help make that happen.”
You can support Alys and Dream Foundation by donating here.
The Oxnard Salsa Festival takes place on July 29 and 30.
