Dancing with Martin Stars Alumni Fundraising Challenge

For the past ten years in September, the Martin County Healthy Start Coalition has produced a spectacular fundraising evening, "Dancing with the Martin Stars” at The Lyric Theatre.

Professional dancers volunteer their time to teach contestants ballroom style dancing using current music. Dances performed have includes the Argentine Tango, Fox Trot, West Coast Swing, Salsa, Disco/Cha Cha and Jazz/Hip Hop.

This year, they will not be able to produce a live show, but instead have created a fundraising challenge with their amazing Star Alumni. Each participating alumni has accepted the challenge to raise $1,000 to help us to continue to serve our community.

However, the organization’s financial obligations must still be met. Dancing with the Martin Stars is their largest fundraising event. Last year $177,500 was raised.

The families that the nonprofit assists still need pre and post-natal support services. Mothers must be able to visit their health-care providers to ensure a healthy baby and safe delivery.

Please consider donating to your favorite star and help them win the coveted Mirror Ball Fundraising trophy! Click here to see the Alumni Stars that are participating. We hope you can give them a helping hand!
