Join us for the first annual Dancing Stars of Greenwich. Held at the luxurious Tamarack Country Club in Greenwich, CT, this year’s event will be held on September 22st from 7 pm to midnight. The evening's highlights include live music by the Hot Cat Jazz Band, a live and silent auction, a “Dancing with the Stars” dance contest, champagne reception, formal dinner, and much more.
In the last two years, our sister event "Brookfield's Dancing Stars have over raised over $103,000 for the participating charities. Our goal for Dancing Stars of Greenwich is to outdo that in our first year. The sole charity benefiting from the 2018 event is Abilis. Proceeds from the live and silent auctions, and donations made to the dance teams will go directly to Abilis. 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.
Past beneficiaries of our events have included:
The Women's Center of Greater Danbury
Female Soldiers/ Forgotten Heroes
The Avielle Foundation
The Tapping Solution Foundation
Family and Children’s Aid
Connecticut Food Bank.
As part of the evening festivities, each team will provide two items or group of items to be auctioned off. Some examples of previous year's items included a deluxe golf package for a foursome to play at five of the most prestigious golf courses in Fairfield and Westchester counties. Other items included private horse riding lessons and a family four pack to the Intrepid in NYC. The total generated by these items in the live and silent auctions will be donated to Abilis and converted into votes for each of the stars helping them win the race for the People’s Choice Award.
