The "Most Fun" Fundraiser in Charlotte County
Set your calendar to MARCH 10, 2017 and get ready to experience one of Charlotte County’s “most fun” fundraisers, Dancing with the Charlotte Stars has been the signature fundraising event for the Arts & Humanities Council of Charlotte County since 2009.
The 8 local celebrities are paired with dancers from local dance studios and the dance partners and together the dance pairs choose themes, pick music, and learn choreography for the annual high-energy dance show. A buffet dinner and pre-show event starts at 6pm, as part of the VIP tickets admission. Advance Tickets at a discount will be available until February 10th. General show only tickets with admittance at 7:30pm are available as well.
Financial support comes from sponsorships, ad sales, ticket/table sales, and “votes” from the community for their favorite celebrity dancers. Contact a dancer or the Charlotte Arts office for more information.
As the largest fundraising event for Charlotte Arts, event proceeds are used to support local programming, including Art in Public Places, Art on the Harbor, Writers Read, Expressions from Beautiful Minds (art therapy), and Café Philo gatherings.
Event proceeds will also be used to provide financial support for classroom grants for art programs in Charlotte County Public Schools. Previously, the grants program provided over $111,000 in classroom grants, providing arts and cultural programs to more than 25,500 students.
Eight local leaders will be dancing their hearts out to raise money for the arts. The Big Reveal party on Tuesday, October 25, we will be announcing who the dancers will be. See if you can guess who these dancers are before Tuesday?
