Kate’s Dance took place at Yuma High School

First event in honor of Advokate Foundation

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Local high schools and dance studios performed at Snyder Auditorium at Yuma High School on Saturday. They paid tribute to late dancing star Kate Campa.

They also created a foundation in her memory known as Advokate; a non-profit organization designed to provide comfort and support to families in the community dealing with pediatric cancer. Kate's mother, Lilly Campo, further spoke on the foundation's efforts.

"The main thing that we do in Advokate foundation is to help families in need. Families that are also going through the same journey that Kate went through" said Campo.

Campa, who passed away in October 2020 from pediatric cancer, was a prized dancer on the Yuma high school dance team.

Furthermore, admission was $15 per entry; all proceeds went to the Advokate Foundation.

Dances also included modernized hip-hop and ballet to honor Campo.
