Dancing with the Stars

September 10, 2022 marked another successful year of Stanly County Dancing with the Stars. Thank you to the community for continuing to support this important cause. Together, donors raised approximately $130,868 to support the work of the Butterfly House.

Since 2012, Dancing with the Stars has raised almost $1.1 million to support the crucial work of the Butterfly House. 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 2022’s winners:

First Place Judges’ Choice Award: Hannah Domenech & Manuel Ubaldo

Second Place Judges’ Choice Award: Rev. Brian Johnson and wife, Karissa Johnson

First Place People’s Choice Award (highest fundraiser): Sabrina Shaw and Johnnie Little

Second Place People’s Choice Award (highest fundraiser): Rebecca Huneycutt and Dan Donaghue

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 2023.
