Dancing With The Stars” Celebs Louis Van Amstel and Jonathan Roberts will make guest appearances at the first MAMMOJAM 2010, a dance club benefit for Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation, at the Rise Club, 6801 W. Hollywood Blvd., in the Hollywood and Highland Complex, on Thursday, April first.

I have supported Dr. Susan Love Foundation, because she has committed her life to putting an end to breast cancer in our lifetime. And I have a daughter who’s now 20, and I want her to see this happen.” Van Amstel will take center stage, demonstrating his Louis’ Dance Blast moves for the crowd to follow, including dance pros, and students from his Sherman Oaks and Beverly Hills dance classes – and Roberts will dance and share the dance floor with the Renowned Surgeon Dr. Susan Love. Celebrities and the public are invited to put on their dancing shoes, too for the dance party, which is expected to raise the roof when it kicks into high gear at 7:00 pm while raising money for the Dr. Love’s pioneering breast cancer research. The event will feature music from the 70’s to Salsa and Disco to Today. Club DJ Prophecy. Dedications of songs will be offered on seven video screens around the dance floor. Participants will have the chance to be partnered with a professional guest dancer, free appetizers, a full no-host bar, a free neck and shoulder massage, not to mention an opportunity to mingle with lots of celebrities and surprise guests on the dance floor. MAMMOJAM 2010 will be a celebration of women of all ages joining forces to fight this deadly disease including mothers and daughters, family members and friends, and the men who love them. “Let’s dance to kick breast cancer to the curb while supporting the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation,” said Guntzelman.
