All other costs related to the event and gala itself have been provided by Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Greenwich or one of our great patrons. Abilis is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that provides services and supports for over 700 people off all ages with special needs and their families in lower Fairfield County. 
The Dancing Stars of Greenwich fundraising event is filled with the fun, glitz and glamor of the hit TV show Dancing with the Stars!  The format of the event is the same used for ABC’s hit TV show. Local celebrities and community leaders will learn a polished choreographed routine and perform with a professional partner at the Gala in a competition mirroring the television show.
 
By donating to the couple of your choice, you, the audience will select the winner who will receive a people’s choice award. A panel of celebrity judges will watch and decide the winner of the dancing contest and who will receive the coveted mirror ball trophy and cash prize,  which will be added to their fundraising efforts for Abilis.


Past Gala attendees of Brookfield's Dancing Stars, our sister event, loved the opportunity to dress elegantly and enjoy delicious food, music and camaraderie. It’s an evening where people can let loose from a busy day and leave knowing they made a difference to an important cause.
