Thank you to everyone that participated, attended and supported our first annual
Dancing with Toronto Celebrities!
Over $40, 000 was raised to support our celebrity’s selected charities.
The evening consisted of a very posh cocktail hour and hors d’oeuvres , silent auction, three course dinner, celebrity and professional performances, group performance from the Arthur Murray Staff, general dancing and a live auction. It was an amazing evening full of glitz and glamour.
Five celebrities competed to win the coveted Mirror ball trophy and to also raise funds and awareness for their selected charity. Our five celebrities and their charities were Ashley Greco (Look Good Feel Better), Cristina Lopes (DEBRA Canada), Trevor Bell (Cancer Society of Canada), Melanie Mason (McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine) and Marianne McCord (Be Brave and Believe).
The winner was determined by judges scores, audience votes, funds raised and received all proceeds from the evenings live and silent auction.
The winner of Dancing with Toronto Celebrities was CHUM FM’s Ashey Greco!
