Global Communicaton Networks was again a proud sponsor of Boca’s Ballroom Battles put on by the George Snow Scholarship Fund. S. Chris Palermo, Founder and CEO of GCN, along with his wife, Yvette Palermo, were Co-Chairs of this years event. So far this year has been a great success for the GSSF as they have raised a little over $750,000 in 2014.
This year Boca’s Ballroom Battles had Chris Holcomb, a quadriplegic, dancing in the competition with professional dancer ,Sayra Ramirez. Their routine was incredible and inspiring. Following their routine, an amazing thing happened: one of the people in the crowd donated $5,000 toward a new scholarship fund for the disabled. Following that donation, another person and another stood up and matched the donation. At the end of the night, 7 people stood up to match the donation, giving rise to the Chris Holcomb Scholarship for Students with Disabilities. Chris and Sayra’s routine has gone viral around the Internet.
