DANCING FOR FUTURE STARS RAISED $325,000!!! 

Dancing for Future
Stars proved to be another fabulous night of entertainment, food, and FUNdraising!

The Club Drumline welcomed folks as they entered the Country Club and the event kicked off with a special performance from the Boys & Girls Cub "Lucky 6" dancers, followed by professional dancers from Metropolitan Ballroom. Chad Melvin, acting CPO, shared how the Dancing event has impacted the Club and its ability to better serve youth at risk.  
Club alumni, Phierica Gardin, gave a moving, passionate speech about how the Club has positively affected her life: "The Boys and Girls Club was there for me and took me under their wing as if I was their own. They were there for me and my family when I needed them most. Their endless love and care is something that is imprinted on my heart." Phierica unknowingly stole the show! (photo above, left)

In its 6th year, Dancing for Future Stars has had the most successful year yet...raising over $320,000! This brings the total funds raised in this event's short history to over $1 million!!! All proceeds benefit Boys & Girls Club youth in Gaston County through vital afterschool and summer programming.  Read more...
