Thanks for “Dancing”
To the Editor:
Thursday evening, Nov. 15 Madison welcomed 20 fabulous dancers who were dancing in the Madison-Morgan County Boys and Girls Club fundraiser, “Dancing with Madison’s Stars.” They were competing for one of two trophies and it just might be said that it was one of the liveliest, most energetic events the Hall at the Cultural Center has witnessed! There was the Judge’s Favorite won by Sarah and David Burbach, and there was the Audience’s favorite won by Anne and Robert Trulock who garnered over 1600 votes at a dollar a vote from a combination of online voting and voting the night of the event. The night was a huge success for the Boys and Girls Club generating a total of $20,000 in contributions!
I extend thanks to the terrific team who put this event together: Ashley Hunt, Rhonda Smith, Nancy Vaughan and Margaret Ligon. Cindy Ferguson and Chris Hilsman hosted the evening with style and grace. Thanks goes to our sponsors and supporters of the Boys and Girls Club, to the folks who bought tickets and who voted, to our wonderful judges, the people who donated food, and all those who volunteered giving their time and effort to making this evening the success that it was. Special thanks goes to Linda and Dan Thomas who turned the Hall into a magical place and to Elizabeth Collins who created the winners’ trophies.
