NBS Dancing for a Cause is a fundraiser packed with glamour, fun and competition.
Nelson Tasman Hospice is proud to be associated with the NBS Dancing for a Cause event and the Nelson Dancing for a Cause Trust.
Nelson Dancing for a Cause is a Charitable Trust Board with its Trustees volunteering their time and working tirelessly with many other individuals and organisations in the Nelson/Tasman regions.
The aim is to put on a spectacular show every two years and most importantly, to raise much needed funds.
Dancing for a Cause held its first event in May 2018 to a sold-out crowd at Nelson’s Trafalgar Centre, raising $111,000 for Nelson Tasman Hospice.
The 2021 event, with the support of the amazing Nelson community, raised an astonishing $248,000. Thank you to the eight contestants and Nelson!
The 2023 event sees ten local personalities partnered each with a trained ballroom dancer. The contestants will perform a ballroom dance in front of a panel of judges and live audience in an attempt to be declared the Nelson Dancing for a Cause winner!
