Helping our Friend Ron Montez

Ron Montez, one of the true legends of dance has been tragically stricken with COVID-19. Unfortunately, he was not one of those who had mild symptoms and is in a battle royal. Ron has a big heart and is fighting this virus but the battle is lonely, long, and arduous.

We, as his friends have protected and encouraged him on this epic fight but also need to help him financially.  Wendy Johnson, Melanie LaPatin, Debbie Avalos. Tony Meredith and myself have opted to start a GoFundMe. We hope to surprise Ron when this is over with a paid hospital bill and enough funds to carry his expenses through several months of his rehabilitation. (Edited for clarity 1-22)

Ron is a Navy Veteran, 7 times US Pro Latin Champion, and all-around great guy. He has coached and inspired many dancers in our wonderful world of dance.

Finally, if you can donate, please understand how personal this is to me and his fellow champions here. There is nothing more we want than to get him back to health and teaching because he has still so much more to give.

          On behalf of Wendy, Tony, Melanie, Debbie and myself. Thank you!
