Funds Raised: $17,500
DC’s Dancing Stars Gala is an exciting fundraising event full of all the fun, glitz and glamour of the hit TV show Dancing with the Stars! Local DC Celebrities learn a polished choreographed routine and perform with a professional partner from Fred Astaire Dance Studio Fairfax. The competition mirrors that of the television show. A panel of celebrity judges, along with the audience, select the winner who receives the coveted mirror ball trophy and a donation for the charity of his/her choice.
In 2016, winner Krystal Koons designated her $17,500 donation to LymeLight Foundation in honor of her sister, Tiffany, who has struggled with Lyme for many years. LymeLight Foundation was delighted to have a team member at the celebration to receive the check with Krystal.
