Dancing With The Local Stars is a charity fundraising & dance event that pairs Asheville's community leaders with professional dancers for an evening of performances supporting local non-profit organizations. For our 2020 event, we have chosen MOUNTAIN CHILD ADVOCACY CENTER as our featured non-profit. MCAC works tirelessly for the children of Buncombe County in their mission to identify & respond to child abuse and neglect; by educating, advocating, and empowering the public to protect children and reduce trauma through a coordinated community effort. This year’s cast of Star performers include: Ingrid Allstaedt - WLOS, Guadalupe Chavarria II - Studio Chavarria, Murphy Funkhouser Capps - Kudzu Brands, Dr. Tim & Betsy Gillespie - Gillespie Dental Associates, Jacqueline Grant - Roberts-Stevens Attorneys At Law, Benjamin Hamrick - Johnson Price Sprinkle PA, Amy Hanks - Beverly-Hanks Realtors & Associates, Dr. William Hathaway - Mission / NC Division HCA Healthcare, Meridith Elliott Powell - Business Strategist & Author, Oscar Wong - Highland Brewing Company. You can help our local stars reach their goals by "voting" for your favorite Star. One vote is equal to $1, and you can vote at www.dwtlsavl.com. All net proceeds from this event will go directly to Mountain Child Advocacy Center.
