CLAREMORE —

The duo will be dancing for Safenet Services. 
Safenet has been the one staple in a domestic violence victim’s life. Inside Safenet’s doors is a safe place for abused women and their children. Safenet’s team of professionals work continuously to help  clients break the cycle of violence in their lives. Unfortunately domestic violence continues to increase which creates an ever growing need for our services: Victim Advocacy Program, Counseling, Parenting Classes, Protective Order Office, Supervised Visit Exchange Center, “C.H.A.N.G.E.S.” A Batterers Program,  Sexual Assault Advocacy and volunteer opportunities at Second Impressions Resale Boutique & Outlet.  
• Bradley McKone and Hillary Gray, dancing the Two-Step to “Cowboy Cadillac”
McKone is a personal trainer at St. Francis Health Zone in Tulsa, and Gray is a 5th grade teacher in Sapulpa with a passion for dance. The couple’s charity is Big Brothers Big Sisters.
BBBS helps at-risk children beat the odds. Headquartered in Tulsa and with eight offices across the state, BBBS serves approximately 2,500 children a year.   For more than 100 years, BBBS has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. Most children served by BBBS live in single-parent and low-income families, or households where a parent is incarcerated. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, BBBS makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”). Providing a system of ongoing evaluation and support, BBBS is proven by independent studies to help families by improving the odds that Littles will perform better in school and avoid violence and illegal activities, and have stronger relationships with their parents and others.
