Hi! My name is Annette Gonzalez. I am the Strategic Accounts Manager for Christopher Glass and Aluminum. I am an avid volunteer. Yes, I love people and I LOVE TO DANCE! I am very excited and honored to accept this challenge! I will be competing by performing two dances with one of the professional dancers from Giordano Dance Chicago. Dancing is a privilage and we are dancing for the love of children, music and the arts.


"Life changing impact start with small acts of kindness."


Being Latino, I was raised around music and dance. Salsa lifts my soul! I have a close friend who always tells me, "You are light." I would like to think that in some small way I am doing my part to make this world a bit brighter, a bit happier and a bit 'lighter.' I accepted this challenge because I wanted to make a difference. I cannot imagine a world without music or a company like GDC that gives back to the community by hosting fundraisers. GDC ensures music and dance will remain a part of our children's lives and in the public schools of our wonderful city! My goal can only be met by generous people like you and companies like the one I work for! They, too, believe in giving back to the community. I hope that I can count on you to meet or exceed my sponsorship goal to support the amazing performances and educational programs of Giordano Dance Chicago.
