Last year’s most exciting and wildly fun fundraiser — Dancing Under the Atlantic City Stars — was an overwhelming success for the Community FoodBank of New Jersey — Southern Branch. The event sold out in an amount of time unprecedented for this area and was the biggest single-day fundraiser that the FoodBank has ever seen.
It returns this year to Hard Rock Atlantic City on Nov. 2, bringing with it 12 new “celebrity dancers” and their talented professional partners. Each week from now until the week of the event, Atlantic City Weekly will feature one of our dancing couples.
Couple No. 9 is Dr. Bradford Tucker and Mary Beth Snow.
Bradford S. Tucker, Rothman Institute Sports Medicine Surgeon
Dr. Bradford Tucker is an orthopaedic surgeon at the Rothman Institute, an Associate Professor at Thomas Jefferson University and the Director of the Cartilage Restoration Center. Tucker specializes in surgery on injured athletes and is the assistant team doctor for the Philadelphia Phillies and Philadelphia 76ers. Tucker and his wife Stacey have three beautiful children, Deuce, Sophia and Sadie, and reside in Ocean City where Tucker grew up. He enjoys surfing, sailing, golfing and skiing with his family. “We all know hunger is a worldwide problem, but it’s also an epidemic locally in South Jersey. I’m proud to be part of this amazing cause to stomp out hunger in our local community! If every community took care of their own people, the world would be a better place.”
Mary Beth Snow, professional dancer
Part of a professional dance family that includes her mom, aunts, sisters and cousins, Mary Beth Snow is the owner of The Dance Place in Ocean City, which she founded 39 years ago and where she has educated thousands in the art of dance from 18-month-old toddlers through adults.
