StarStruck is a dance competition and gala to benefit the programs and services of the American Red Cross. StarStruck is not like other fundraising events in the Naples and Fort Myers area. Your enchanted evening at StarStruck 2014 is all about the dancing! The culmination of the evening is a competition between local celebrities who will dance with a local professional dancer who they have been practicing with for many months.
Here are some details about how to enjoy StarStruck:
Featured dance performance by a dancer who wants to showcase his/her dance skills in a 2-minute dance of his/her choice. Each dancer generously donates for this opportunity and brings their own professional dancer.
Let a dance professional make you look like a Pro! Sign up to dance with one of the professional dancers and enjoy the dance(s) of your choice.
Dancing at this event is not limited to just the pros and our celebrity dancers. Open dancing will be available at several different times throughout the evening.
Celebrity Dance Competition
Community celebrities from Lee and Collier County, paired with a professional ballroom dancer, will present a dance routine to showcase their new skills. Cast your vote for your favorite dancer and pledge additional donation dollars with cards on each table. Trophies to be awarded to “Audience Favorite” dancer and “Top Fundraiser”.
