Dancing with the Local Stars' goal is to raise $30,000 in 2017
Dancing with the Local Stars in Frankenmuth is now in its third season. For those that attended in 2015 or 2016 you know what an exciting and fun night it is supporting our local stars from prior years. But Dancing with the Local Stars is so much more.
Our goal is to raise $30,000 a year for the next three years, when this event twilights. If we meet, or surpass that goal, Dancing with the Local Stars will have raised over $125,000 which will be enough to assist in bringing a Splash Pad to Frankenmuth.
So how is it possible to raise $30,000 in one year? Totally possible! If every one of the attendees donates at least $100, the goal can be met. Unfortunately, simply buying a ticket does not help with our fundraising efforts since the ticket price covers the meal and other expenses we have putting on a premier event such as this.
The event will return to one night, Saturday, March 11th and will be at the Bavarian Inn Lodge featuring another delicious meal. Tickets will be for sale at City Hall and this year will be $75 a person or $700 for a table of 10. For those who want to purchase one of the very limited number of “Premium Seating” tables, the cost will be $1,000.
We soon will be announcing who the 2017 dancers are.
