Set your calendar to March 9, 2018 and get ready to experience Charlotte County’s “most fun” fundraiser. Dancing with the Charlotte Stars has been the signature fundraising event for the Arts & Humanities Council of Charlotte County since 2009.
Selected local celebrities are paired with local dance studios and together they perform a high-energy dance show.
Financial support comes from sponsorships, ad sales, ticket/table sales to the March 9 event, and “votes”, as donations from the community and for their favorite celebrity dancers. Contact a dancer or the Charlotte Arts office for more information. NOTE: Those who donate do not receive tickets to attend the March 9 event.
