STARSTRUCK 2014

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:

Spotlight Dance

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.

Taxi Dance

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.

General Dance

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”.

 

Support your Favorite Celebrity Dancer by Purchasing the Following Items:

Dancer Paddles

What a fun way to show loyalty to your favorite dancer!

Purchase Dancer Paddles with a celebrity dancer’s image and wave them in support. Paddles can be purchased from one of our roving “Star Steppers”. The purchase price will be counted toward the dancer’s fundraising goal.

Dance Flowers

Purchase flowers to “shower” and support your favorite dancer or dancers. Just identify the dancer that you are supporting when you purchase the flower. The purchase price can be counted toward a specific dancer's goal.

Dancer Donations

Guests can continue to support their favorite dancer (and help them win the “Top Fundraiser”Trophy) by pledging a donation on the cards placed on all of the guest dinner tables.

 

Additional Ways to Support the American Red Cross, Florida’s Southern Gulf Region:

Balloon Pop

Share in the excitement! Better than a raffle, you are assured a prize! StarSteppers will sell balloons at three different price levels - (prices coming soon). Each balloon will have a gift certificate(s) for a restaurant, experience, salon, or other services inside. Value of gift certificates is at least equal to the price of the individual balloon.
