DWTS - Fort Mill was amazing

This year’s third annual Dancing with the Stars – Fort Mill was truly amazing. Thank you to all of the cast and production crew for their hard work on the dance floor and in our community, raising funds for our middle school sports program. Although Celia McCarter and Dmitriy Solomakha were the Dance Champions and Bob DeLong and Gabriela Sevillano were the Overall Mirror Ball winners, all of the contestants were truly winners.

The amount that was raised was so far beyond anything we could imagine. Our net should be right at $40,000. Remember, as a self-funded athletics program, we have to raise $60,000 each year to cover expenses for the 60 teams. What this significant contribution does is affords our board the ability to use some of our funds to build the program, improve equipment and add additional resources to all of the middle schools.

A special thank you to the local businesses for your donations, event guests and donors for all they have done to make this so much fun and such a success.

You have all been such a blessing to us, this event and most of all, the Fort Mill community.
