Our local Clubs’ most important event of the year, Dancing for the Stars, took place on Saturday, October 2nd. We are deeply grateful to our amazing dancers who said “YES!” to our kids--and through their dedicated efforts, raised critical funds needed to keep our doors open in 2021. While the true winners are our kids, three top awards went to Luther Kraxberger & Marina Rogova-O’Brien for “Judge’s Choice” for best performance, Dr. Lisa Rhine & Daniel Garcia for “People’s Choice Award” for most votes, and Mayor Kell Palguta & Jamie Procknow took home the mirror ball for “Best Friendraiser”, for raising the highest amount in donations. Please join us in giving a big shout out to all our amazing dancers who worked so hard in fundraising, rehearsing, and dazzling our audience:
