Talk of the Town: Dancing with the Stars - even if they’re not a star

Talk of the Town: Dancing with the Stars

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Lights, dancers, a stage, and show time. The next Dancing with the Stars Coldwell Banker once again will test the dancing skills of real estate agents and others in the community who are willing to take the stage partnering with a professional to show what they can do on the dance floor.

Coldwell Banker and Elite Ballroom have joined together in their 3rd annual Dancing with the Stars fundraiser to support Epworth Children’s Home. Together they have raised $65,000 so far and this year, their goal is $100,000.

Andrew Boozer is with the Epworth Children’s Home - the group benefiting from the fundraising event. Jamie Barrett and Stefano Placidi are with Elite Ballroom Dance Academy. They’re teaching the contestants a new dance and will be the ones taking turns lending their talents to the contestants.

The Dancing with the Stars Coldwell Banker event benefiting Epworth Children’s Home is Saturday, Jan. 26 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. The venue is Midlands Technical College Harbison Theater located at 730 College Street in Irmo.

Epworth Children’s Home serves children, youth, and families through a caring, accepting, and safe Christian community where hurts are healed; hope is nurtured; and faith in God, self, and others is developed.

Elite Ballroom is a full service ballroom offering social dancing, group classes, and private lessons. The mission of Coldwell Banker Carolina Cares is to give back to the communities and neighborhoods in which we live, by proving charitable contributions and volunteer support to create a lasting source of unity, hope and vision in South Carolina.
