Southgate area charity dances its heart out

October 25, 2016 by  

Residents in Southgate and the surrounding areas will soon be suiting up and putting on their dancing shoes to help a good cause at the Dance with Your Heart Charity Gala. The event features celebrity dances, dinner, auctions, and more.

The event is hosted by Dance with Your Heart, a nonprofit group that organizes dancing events and marketing services for local charities such as the Children’s Law Center, Susan B. Komen Foundation, and the Cancer Support Community of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Part of the proceeds from the gala go to supporting the organization, and the other part goes to charities selected by the celebrity couples dancing at the event, who win one of three prizes.

The celebrities include former state senator Gary Cates, executive director of UpSpring Mike Moroski, and singer/songwriter/filmmaker Darwin Darling. Each celebrity will be partnered with a professional dancer. They will then be judged by a panel of three judges and awarded prizes based on judges choice, fan favorite, and fundraising champion.

Additionally there will be dinner, appetizers, drinks, and a silent auction, as well as time for open dancing.

The Dance with Heart Charity Gala will be held on November 19 from 6:00 to 11:00 pm at the Syndicate, located at 18 E. 5th St. in nearby Newport. Tickets cost $100 each or $125 for VIP. Anyone interested in more info should visit the website.
