Dancing North Georgia Stars

Hiawassee, GA – Local celebrities, partnered with professionals, are brushing up their best moves to hit the dance floor for charity on Saturday, November 4.

Enotah CASA , a non-profit whose mission is to establish safe and permanent homes for local abused or neglected children, has announced their lineup for Dancing with North Georgia Stars.

Hiawassee Councilman Kris Berrong and Manager of Brothers Restaurant, Heath Ledford, will perform with a professional dance partner at the Union County Schools Fine Arts Center in Blairsville to raise funds for children in need of loving care.

Sponsored by United Community Bank, tickets are available for the event at the bank’s Hiawassee and Blairsville locations, the Towns County Chamber of Commerce, and from the dancers themselves.

Tickets are $40 per person and include a gala immediately following the charity event at North Georgia Technical College in Blairsville.

Music, dancing, hors d’oeuvres, tastings with Grandaddy Mimms, and a cash bar are in the “stars” for attendees.

Tickets for the show alone are $25 per person.

Doors open at 6:15 pm, the pre-show is scheduled for 6:30 pm, and the show itself begins at 7:00 pm.

Supporters can also cast their vote for their favorite dance team online or in person by cash, check, credit, or PayPal.

“[CASA] volunteers are trained to advocate for the best interest of abused and neglected children in juvenile court. Our volunteers are assigned by the juvenile court judge to speak up for the needs of the children in court and they work with the children until the case is resolved satisfactorily. Our primary goal is to have the child in a safe and stable home as quickly as possible,” Event Chair Liz Ruf tells Fetch Your News.
