Event description

Description

Dessert & Dancing for Dowdy sadly was birthed in 2017. Six months after I loss my wonderful husband ( James D. Dowdy) to Pancreatic Cancer after a courageous 10 month battle. We ( Dion and I) talked about the fight to raise awareness, find more effective treatments, and ultimately a cure for this cruel disease.

Unfortunately, it was not meant to be that he would remain to fight with me. 6 months after his passing, I was unsure about everything in my life with the exception of two things: One, knowing that the I AM was still with me. And two, I wanted to do whatever I could to change things for those living with Pancreatic Cancer.

I reached out to PanCan (Pancreatic Cancer Action Network). PanCAN is an organization that is on the forefront of research and advocacy as it relates to Pancreatic Cancer. After knowing who would be the beneficiary of the fundraiser in my husband’s honor and memory. I began to create an event that spoke to his spirit.

Something that would make him proud that his name was attached to it. My husband was a Navy veteran. So, many of his friends called him by his last name. We both love desserts and dancing. Even though our rhythm was always off unless we were dancing together. We both love the outdoors. We are true romantics. Over 26 years, we spent many evenings and nights holding hands and gazing at the stars. So, Dessert & Dancing for Dowdy lives up to it’s name.

If one evening in September, preferably September 7, your looking to find something wonderful to do for a great cause. Put on a dash of purple and slide on you dancing shoes! Bring your sweet tooth! Come out and enjoy a beautiful evening under the North Carolina stars with beautiful people WAGING HOPE together.
