Dancing with the Stars comes to Warwick

March 16, 2013 by  

The 7th annual Dancing with the Stars of Mentoring is taking place in Cranston this April.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Rhode Island Mentoring Partnership to help support its programs. The organization provides both in-school and community-based programs for youth and offers extensive training to those who wish to mentor them.

In a similar fashion to how it works on the television show, Dancing with the Stars of Mentoring matches eight local business leaders with eight professional movers and shakers from Dancin’ Feelin’, and guests and judges vote on the winners. The various awards for the dancers include People’s Choice, Judges’ Choice, and Most Entertaining.

In addition to voting on and enjoying the dancers, guests will be treated to dinner and can take part in a silent auction.

Sponsorships are available for the event from $250 – $5,000, and sponsors will be recognized in the program booklet, on table signs, and on banners displayed at the event. It is very likely that businesses from all over the area, including nearby Warwick, will be interested in sponsoring this event. Local printing companies will also no doubt be providing the program booklets, signs and banners that will be needed to help create a more memorable event.

Dancing with the Stars of Mentoring will take place at Rhodes on The Pawtuxet on April 25 from 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm. Tickets are $75 each or $750 for a table of 10. Those requiring more information can call 401-732-7700.
