Big Bear Lake, CA, February 17, 2012, 3:00pm – The Big Bear Chamber of Commerce is holding its annual Moonshine & Mayhem event on February 25th, 2012, at the Big Bear Lake Convention Center.  The Chamber has added a charity dance competition to the event that will help raise money for local Big Bear charities and the Chamber of Commerce. Fifteen dance couples will hit the dance floor and dance the Cowboy Swing, Two Step, and Cha Cha to raise as much money as possible for their chosen charities, which include the Hospital Auxiliary, Education Trust, Lighthouse Project, Historical Society, and many others. Lisa Patterson, Membership Chair and dance competition coordinator hopes the dance couples will include humor, parody, and comedic relief into their dance performances. She really wants people to have fun with the competition and try to raise as much money possible for local charities. All donors will get 25 raffle tickets for every $20 donated, which will go into the Chinese auction at Moonshine and Mayhem. Moonshine & Mayhem tickets are only $28 per person or private VIP tables of 10 are $350, and discounts are available for charities interested in purchasing a table. The event includes a buffet dinner, Western DJ Joe Vonesh, line dancing, live and silent auctions. Purchase tickets at the Chamber of Commerce at 630 Bartlett Rd in the Village, or at the door.
