On Saturday night, Long Island IVF and the Cade Foundation hosted a fabulous infertility fundraiser…Dancing for the Family… at the breathtaking Dance With Me studio in Glen Head, NY—home of Dancing with the Stars® champion dancers.

There was music and dancing with all attendees enjoying professional dance lessons. Food and drinks and desserts for all. A silent auction. All for only $65. And perhaps the best part: a fabulous door prize of a free IVF cycle, valued at approximately $10,000 to help one infertile couple start or build their family. To have a baby through a treatment they otherwise may not be able to afford.

This free IVF cycle was transferable, meaning that someone could win it for someone else. So friends and family could come down and not only have a fun night, but could possibly become some couple’s hero by winning the prize for them. So many people who are open about their infertility struggle have loved ones who want to help them and this was the perfect opportunity.

And that’s what happened on Saturday night. Someone won it for her friend. What a gift! Can you imagine what happened between them when she shared the news?

Plenty of folks were out there on the dance floor, taking advantage of this fabulous opportunity to win the chance for themselves or their friends to have a baby. They all enjoyed a fun evening while also raising money for the Cade Foundation to continue to fund infertility and adoption grants and educational programs in our area and throughout the country. But…there was room for more. The night had it all: music, dance lessons, food, drinks, dessert and the best door prize imaginable. And everyone who came felt the magic in the air.

So…where were you?

Seriously, we want to know what kept those of you we missed from attending. Because we want you there the next time. Would you take a moment to let us know?

Did you not hear about the event in time? Was the ticket too costly? Did you stay away for privacy concerns? Was the location inconvenient? Was the dance night theme unappealing? Was the date inconvenient or did it conflict with other vacation plans? Was it something else?

Help us help you. Let us know what kept you and your friends from being part of this fabulous event. Your suggestions may help us plan our next amazing event.

And for those who were there…thank you for making it such a special night. We know that not winning the door prize hurts. A lot. That’s the hard part for us, too. But we encourage you all to research the grant options available through Long Island IVF and the Cade Foundation on our respective websites. And keep following us for any future special events.

  1. We would have come but we did not have a babysitter. We are grateful to the doctors and nurses at LIIVF for our daughter and wanted to show our support. Hopefully we will be able to make it next time.
