Congratulations to the 2017 Dancing Stars of Atlanta cast for setting a new event fundraising record!
A very special congratulations to our People's Choice Winners Suzanne Dansby and Jay Varnedoe for raising more than $170,000 and our Judges' Choice Winners Teri Schneider and Matthew Gann for scoring a perfect 30 out of 30!
Special recognition also goes to Ken Covers and Morgan Hendrix, who, in an unprecedented event, continued to raise funds beyond the event, for a grand total of more than $173,000! A People's Choice award was also presented to Ken and Morgan for their amazing accomplishment and dedication to ending Alzheimer's disease.
Thank you to all cast members, committee members, donors, attendees, and volunteers!
Donations to Dancing Stars of Atlanta to support your favorite dancer can continue to be made through June 1st.
Reinventing the popular show, “Dancing with the Stars,” this special fundraising event is comprised of local Atlantan celebrity dancers paired with professional dancers, all raising funds by gaining votes in a one-night, gala dance competition.
This fun-filled evening lets you experience the glamour of ballroom dancing while voting ($1 = 1 vote) for your favorite pair and listening to feedback from a panel of local celebrity judges! At the end of the night, here are two winners – People’s Choice Award for the couple with the hightest fundraising total and Judge’s Choice Award for the couple who receives the highest judge's score.
Afterwards, take a spin around the dance floor yourself!
All funds raised support Alzheimer's research and the programs and services provided to those diagnosed with Alzheimer's and their families.
