Dancing with the Stars

September 8, 2018 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 $90,000 to support the work of the Butterfly House.

Since 2012, Dancing with the Stars has raised over $500,000. 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 this year’s winners:

DUOs Judges’ Choice Award: Faith McSwain and D.J. Zaleski

TRIOs Judges’ Choice Award: Laura Almond, Travis Haywood, and Caleb Hyatt

DUOs People’s Choice Award: Colleen Conroy and Kelly Lowder

TRIOs People’s Choice Award: Laura Harbeson, Carla Poplin, and James Wilson

Overall winner with the highest fundraising: Caroline Brothers and Matt Shaver


If you are interested in being a part of this event as a volunteer or a dancer, please contact Rebekah Ayscue. Please note – a larger committee makes the decisions about who will be the dancers for 2019.
