State Farm Joins Dancing with the Stars for the American Red Cross as a Sponsorship Partner

The American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter is excited to announce State Farm as an additional sponsorship partner for the Dancing with the Stars fundraising event on Saturday, February 26, 2011.

 “We are very grateful to State Farm for their sponsorship of our Dancing with the Stars event,” said Steve Maricque, Lakeland Chapter Executive Director.  “It is a fun community event that provides valuable resources for us to have available to respond when needed.” 

State Farm is not only a new sponsor this year, but State Farm Agent, John Allen is one of our ten local “star” dancers. “We appreciate John Allen’s dance skills and willingness to be involved in helping make a difference in his community,” said Maricque.

“I was thrilled that State Farm once again supported another great cause in our community,” said State Farm Agent John Allen. “With my experience as a State Farm agent, I unfortunately see a lot of people that need help recovering from disasters like home and apartment fires.  The Red Cross has been a great resource for people in their time of need after these and other disasters.  I am glad to personally support the Red Cross and to see State Farm support such a worthwhile cause.”

Additional sponsors of Dancing with the Stars include Oneida Nation of Wisconsin, Evans Race & Van Dreel, CPAS and our media partners WBAY-TV2 and WIXX.
