Dancing with the Local Stars
March 4 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm$100 – $1000
Dancing with the Local Stars is 5:30 p.m. March 4 at ilani Casino Resort, 1 Cowlitz Way, Ridgefield, presented by Parlour 73 of Battle Ground. This year, the cast includes Jesse Braman, Natalie Grushevskiy-Rybak, Marykay Lamoureaux, Shana O’Brien, Brad Richardson, Angie White-Swanson, Mitchell Wilder, Dr. Weiya Wysham and Paul Van Der Salm. The nine local stars will compete for the grand championship with the funds that they will work to raise between now and the event on March 4. Funds raised during the event may also be allocated to the donor’s favorite local stars to help that star win the Mirror Ball Trophy.
A panel of four judges will determine the best dancer, in fashion like the TV show that inspires the fundraiser. The judges are Vancouver Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle, the club’s immediate past president Nelson Holmberg and a professional dance instructor with ballroom judging experience. The final judge will be a member of the audience who wins a raffle on the night of the event to take that seat on the stage. KGW Reporter Tim Gordon will serve as emcee of the event.
Tickets range from $100 per person to $1,000 for a table. More information is available online at www.dancingwiththelocalstars.com.
