It was a night filled with costumes and good music as contestants took the stage at Habersham Central High School for the annual Dancing with the Stars for Hope event sponsored by Kinetic by Windstream.
Nine teams helped fill the night with entertainment, laughs, and of course smooth moves gliding across the stage. Contestants recreated scenes from popular movies such as “Grease,” “Star Wars,” “Mary Poppins” and the 1989 classic “Say Anything.” It was an absolute honor to watch their hard work come to life.
Setting a new record, the event raised over $150,000 for Circle of Hope and the Habersham County Rotary Club enabling critical funding for the community.
Windstream-area president J. Berkshire said, “The night was a hit. Everyone had a great time all while giving back to the community. Filled? with elegance and prestige, it was inspiring to watch the community come together to enjoy the hard work of our volunteers. We are looking forward to next year and hope to raise more life changing funding for our Habersham county.”
