Set your calendar to MARCH 2018 and get ready to experience one of Charlotte County’s “most fun” fundraisers, Dancing with the Charlotte Stars has been the signature fundraising event for the Arts & Humanities Council of Charlotte County since 2009.
The 8 local celebrities are paired with dancers from local dance studios and the dance partners and together the dance pairs choose themes, pick music, and learn choreography for the annual high-energy dance show.
Financial support comes from sponsorships, ad sales, ticket/table sales, and “votes” from the community for their favorite celebrity dancers. Contact a dancer or the Charlotte Arts office for more information.
As the largest fundraising event for Charlotte Arts, event proceeds are used to support local programming, including Art in Public Places, Art on the Harbor, Writers Read, Expressions from Beautiful Minds (art therapy), and Café Philo gatherings.
Event proceeds will also be used to provide financial support for classroom grants for art programs in Charlotte County Public Schools. Previously, the grants program provided over $111,000 in classroom grants, providing arts and cultural programs to more than 25,500 students.
