Chase Heatherly Dancing in Dancing for Our Heroes

Dancing for Our Heroes, presented by the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, is right around the corner on April 4th. The event is held at the Civic Center and features "celebrity" dancers nominated by Rotary members that are matched with "pro" dancers to support local charities. The dancer raises money before the event that goes directly the charity. All proceeds from the event itself are split between the charities, and this year there are 10 charities represented. The performances will be scored by a panel of judges.

/ Chase DancingWe are proud to announce that Chase Heatherly will dance for AIM this year. Chase currently serves in the advertising sales department for the Anderson Independent-Mail. At age 22, Chase is a recent graduate of Anderson University, where he majored in Business, specifically marketing and management. Chase made a name for himself in the Anderson community, and was named to the Independent Mail’s “20 Under 40” Emerging Leader list while still a college student. He is the youngest person to receive the award since its inception three years ago. Chase is a long-time advocate for Anderson Interfaith Ministries, joining the organization’s Board of Directors in January of this year. His initiation to the Board, he jokes, has become dancing in front of hundreds of people. Chase needs your help! He doesn't seem to think he has a good shot at winning the dancing competition, but there's another more coveted award to be won, the People's Choice Award. Chase can be chosen as the winner of the People’s Choice Award depending on the amount of money he raises for AIM before and at the event.

Will you please help Chase in this effort by making a financial contribution to Anderson Interfaith Ministries?  Donate Here!

Crescent Students Give Back

Students from the Crescent High School Transition Program made a generous donation to AIM on Monday.  The goals of the program are for the students to learn life skills, work skills and giving back to their community through volunteerism.  The students participated in the Town of Iva Chili Cook-off in the fall and won.  They have graciously donated their winnings to AIM. Through the participation in the Chili Cook-off, students learned about shopping on a budget, food preparation, cooking and giving back to their community.  Crescent High School has a thrift store on Main Street in Iva that these students work at in order to enhance their job skills.  Students help with the inventory, put away donated items, assist customers and work the cash register.
