Dancing with the Local Stars
February 27 - February 29
The 12th annual “Dancing with the Local Stars” charity event to raise money for local food pantries pairs local community stars with professional dancers for an exciting evening of entertainment! This year’s event will feature the largest cast to date, as 42 prominent locals trip the light fantastic with 11 professional dancers at the Delta Hotel in downtown Muskegon. Participants include business owners and nonprofit professionals, a pharmacist, a fifth grade teacher, a firefighter, the co-owner of Rad Dads’ Taco & Tequila Bar, and the Ogema of the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians.
Last year, the event raised more than $135,000, bringing the total amount raised over its first dozen years to $1 million. The proceeds have gone to fight hunger in Muskegon County, as well as lower Oceana and upper Ottawa counties.
Performances will take place the evenings of February 27-29, with an additional matinee on Saturday, February 29. Tickets will be available beginning January 2 by calling 231-798-4244. Food-related charities are invited to request funds at www.womensdivision.org.
