Some brought the audience to their feet. Others brought them to tears.
Ten local celebrities showed off their ballroom skills over the weekend to raise money and awareness in the fight against Alzheimer’s Disease during the 2015 Dancing Stars of Coastal Georgia Fundraising Gala.
 
A sold out crowd of more than 850 attendees gathered for the competition at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center on Hutchinson Island. News 3’s Kim Gusby was one of the emcees.

So far, more than $225,000 dollars has been raised during this year’s campaign. Money will continue to come in through the end of the month. Proceeds go towards raising awareness, funding research, and supporting families in our community who are living with this Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

Dr. Catherine Grant is this year’s People’s Choice Award Winner. She raised more than $58,000 for the campaign.

Congratulations to Kristen Harkleroad! She walked away with this year’s coveted Judge’s Award!
