Dancing with the Stars

2023 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 $133,347 to support the work of the Butterfly House. 

Since 2012, Dancing with the Stars has raised almost $1.2 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.
