September 7, 2019 marked another successful year of Stanly County Dancing with the Stars. Thank you to the community for continuing to support this important cause. Together, our community raised approximately $110,000 to support the work of the Butterfly House.
Since 2012, Dancing with the Stars has raised over $720,000. Our community has made an incredible investment in the approximately 200 children that are served each year by the Butterfly House. These dollars will ensure they receive the highest level of care possible close to home in a safe environment.
Congratulations to 2019’s winners:
First Place Judges’ Choice Award: Louisa Jane Hartsell and William Benson
Second Place Judges’ Choice Award: Kisha Scott and Jose Estela
First Place People’s Choice Award (highest fundraiser): Mary Catherine Boylin and Kyle Eudy
Second Place People’s Choice Award (highest fundraiser): Julie Busch and Marty Ingram
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Dancing With The Stars 2020 has been postponed until September 11, 2021. We look forward to the best season yet!
If you are interested in being a part of this event as a volunteer or a dancer, please contact Kim McGowen. Please note – a larger committee makes the decisions about who will be the dancers for 2021.
