He's A Dancing Machine !
Friday Jan 11, 2013 By: Christine
For those of you born around my time, you’ll recognize this blog’s title as a Michael Jackson song and one that certainly got our feet moving to the beat. There is a point to this title and blog…the point being charity.
Dancing has always been a big thing in our family, thanks to our dad George who could always be found on the dance floor from beginning to end at every party. So it wasn’t a big surprise when the Just For Kids Foundation of Montreal asked my brother Peter to participate in the 2013 JFK “Dancing With The Stars”. A little reluctant at first due to some aches and pains that come with age, Peter finally agreed and has been giving 110%. I have to say I am not that surprised because when he commits to a cause he is pretty relentless in his devotion.
For the last few months at least 3 times a week he makes the trek from the West Island to Westmount to practice with his wonderful teacher and star Anne-Marie Cote .
He often drops by our shop in Westmount to bring us up to date and has even showed us a few moves he’s mastered. I’ve always known Pete to be a great dancer but not in that choreographed way, he’s more the free style kinda guy who really just loves to dance and is hard to keep off a dance floor at parties. I guess he has a lot more in common with our dad than his hair line and walk!
Instead of our flower type blog about our business I thought it deserving to write how Westmount Florist has supported hundreds of causes and events over the years and we are so proud this year to be supporting our brother “Happy Feet Pete” for an incredible organization and cause.
We urge you to help him exceed his fundraising goal and you can check out his very own Dancing With the Stars page HERE.
On February 5th, 2013 in front of a packed house the gang from Westmount Florist will be cheering on Happy Feet Pete and supporting the Just For Kids Foundation.
Go Pete Go! You Dancing Machine!
