Why They Dance
The Hot Flashz raise money to help support their primary charities, Camp Boggy Creek, founded by the late Paul Newman and General H. Norman Schwarzkopf. This is a Florida camp for children with life-threatening illnesses. They also support Special Operations Warrior Foundation. This organization is located in Tampa and provides full college scholarship grants as well as education and family counseling to the children of military personnel who die in service. They also provide immediate financial assistance to severely wounded military and their families. The Hot Flashz perform a highly entertaining show. The audience is dazzled by their charm and delivery. When you hire or donate to the Hot Flashz, you can be assured that your money is going to the kids. The Hot Flashz cast personally pay for all of their costumes!
