ELON, N.C. – Elon University head men’s basketball coach Matt Matheny is among six local celebrities taking part in the upcoming “Dancing with the Little Pink Stars” benefit. The event will raise money for Little Pink Houses of Hope.

“It is an honor to be able to contribute to such a worthwhile organization like Little Pink Houses of Hope and I am really looking forward to this great event next month,” said Matheny. “Thank goodness Durice is patient as she tries to teach me how to dance!”

The event will be held on Oct. 13 at 6:30 p.m. at the Alamance Country Club in Burlington, N.C. Those wishing to attend can purchase tickets for $100 online at www.littlepinkhousesofhope.org. The ticket price includes hors d’oeuvres, live music, dinner, an open bar, door prizes and the dance performances. Fans can also go online and donate towards an individual team. Every $20 donated counts as one vote.

Matheny will be partnered with Durice White, the Elon University Assistant Director of Alumni Engagement and a 2009 Elon graduate.
