“Dancing with the Stars” returns for the 8th year with an all-new celebrity cast who will brave the dance floor in competition for the first time. Nine local celebrities, partnered with professional instructors, will each compete for a chance to win the coveted mirror-ball trophy and raise much-needed funds for the local drug prevention agency.

Set for Saturday, June 17 at 7:30 p.m. in the Dothan Civic Center, the 8th Annual Dancing with the Stars event is on course to be the best show yet!

Still a few months away, the DHCSAP is already busily preparing for the June 17 event.

“Our celebrities are busy rehearsing with their professional partner and seeking sponsorships,” Beth Ford, program manager, says. “Sponsorship levels start at $100 and go up to $5000 for Spotlight sponsorship. Some sponsorship levels will also receive, in addition to an advertisement in the program, special seating at the event and an invitation to a special pre-show reception and ‘mocktail’ party where they will have a chance to meet the performers one-on-one before hand.”

Fundraising for the event comes in the form of one of the few times it’s actually “legal” to buy a vote. “One vote equals one dollar,” Ford says. “The dancers are already seeking donations for their votes, and the night of the event, the audience will have a chance to ‘vote’ for their favorite couple, too. Also, sponsorships can be added to an individual couple’s vote total. It’s just going to be a lot of fun, and it’ll be a fun evening for all ages.”

This year’s celebrities include: Leonard Smolinski, private counselor; Dr. Nancy Hein, Professional Lane Dental; Peter Covert, Oncology Supply; Whintey Devane, Ameris Bank; Scott Smith, Farley Nuclear plant; Anthony Long, Unity Funeral Home; Kimberly Hyde, WTVY; Dave Gilligan, 105.3 Wiregrass Radio; and Terri June Granger, Synergy fitness.
