Dancing To Give Children A Voice In Alleged Abuse Cases
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Local celebrities will be strapping on their dance shoes Nov. 10 at the St. Paul Hotel to help the CornerHouse ensure voices of children are heard in cases of alleged abuse.
A nonprofit founded in 1989, CornerHouse is committed to helping children grow up free from abuse. Cornerhouse is the leader in interviewing children who are victims or could be victims of abuse, training 26,000 professionals in their technique.
“It’s our third-annual Let’s Dance, loosely based on the Dancing with the Stars TV series … and it’s a great deal of fun,” said executive director Patricia Harmon.
Helping judge the event are Gopher basketball coach Tubby Smith and Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek.
