Dancing with the Stars: Julia Theisen

Julia Theisen

On April 27, 2013 10 local business celebrities will dance their heels off for their favorite local charity. Here is a little bit more about one of our dancers, Julia Theisen of Body & Soul Salon Spa.

Charity: Dubuque Rescue Mission

I chose the Dubuque Rescue Mission because Rick Mihm (Executive Director) uses donations to EQUIP the homeless men with knowledge, skills and spiritual fulfillment. Below are just some examples of how Rick and the Mission truly support these men and this community:

  1. ORGANIC GARDENS have been developed – the residents learn how to grow and maintain the gardens and then use the produce in the kitchen.
  2. BICYCLE REPAIR SHOP – they take in donated bicycles, learn how to repair them and then resell or use them for their own transportation.
  3. TRANSITIONAL HOUSING – two homes in the Downtown area have been purchased, renovated and are now used for transitional housing for former residents of the Mission.

Tickets are $40.00 per person and are available at Five Flags Center (Box Office Hours: Monday – Friday 10 am to 5 pm) or through Ticket Master or call Ticketmaster at 800.745.3000
