9th Annual Dance With Our Stars

August 22, 2019, 7:00 pm

Our 9th year of Dance With Our Stars (DWOS) was a record-breaking year! This year’s cast of talented local "Celebrities" pledged to raise funds to benefit programs and services for patients at Adventist Health and Rideout as part of their dance entry. Our amazing 2019 Dance With Our Stars cast raised over $132,000. This is the most ever raised in a single night, exceeding last year’s $114,000.

Our 2019 Celebrity Cast!

THE FOUNDATION IMPACT AWARD goes to the DWOS Celebrity who raises the most support up until the day of the event. This year we had a very tight race, between our seven contestants. Our top fundraiser was Christian Sachs who raised an all-time DWOS record of $30,000 to benefit Adventist Health and Rideout Cancer Center and the Heart & Vascular Institute.
