Dine & Dance with the Stars
June 11, 2022
The Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center
Dine and Dance with the Stars is a competition based on the hit tv show Dancing with the Stars. Local “celebrities” dance to raise money for the charities BMA supports. They are partnered with local professional dancers. The person who gets the most votes ($20 per vote) becomes the grand champion and takes home the coveted mirror ball. Professional dancers from the actual television show join us as judges, as well as perform and auction off dances with themselves. Emcees are 610 Sports Bob Fescoe and Fox 4 Meteorologist Michelle Bogowith.
