The newest group of “star dancers” for the American Red Cross Dancing with our Stars fundraiser was unveiled Tuesday night at a kickoff party sponsored by Festival Foods. The 11 community members competing to raise the most funds to support local Red Cross efforts are:
Brian Bartel – Dad/Inventor
Rick & Susie Beverstein – Senior Vice President, AON (Rick)
Deb DeLeers – Attorney, Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C.
Tammy Elliott – Morning News Anchor, WBAY-TV 2
Tracy Lemsky – Senior Vice President, Private Banking Group Manager, Associated Bank
Chris Lofgren – President/CEO, Schneider National
Jim Rivett – President, Arketype
Mike Spurlock – Partner, Spurlock, Runyan, Miller & Assoc., C.P.A.s
Stacy Struck – Regional Manager, Jack’s Maintenance
Jody Weyers – Director, Volunteer & Communications at American Red Cross
They will now spend the next four months learning two ballroom dances which they will perform at Dancing with our Stars 2014, presented by the Schneider National Foundation. That event will take place Saturday, February 15th at the KI Convention Center in downtown Green Bay. Dancing with our Stars is now in its sixth year and it is has been a sold-out event each year. Not only do those in attendance support local efforts, so can those not attending as the “star dancers” receive votes in the form of donations to the Red Cross. One dollar equals one vote. Donations can be made now at this website:
The person who raises the most money between now and the end of the event will be awarded the coveted Fundraising Mirror Ball Trophy. All funds raised support disaster prevention, preparation and relief, the life-saving training of first aid, CPR/AED classes, collection and testing of blood and blood products, support to military members serving around the globe, the transportation program and international programs.
DanceSport of Green Bay, J. Powell Dance Studio of Green Bay, Simply Ballroom of Green Bay and TC Dance Club of Appleton are the participating dance partner studios for the event.
Information about tickets will be available at a later date. More event information can be found on the following Red Cross platforms:
