Fundraiser for child-welfare

Some well-known names throughout St. Joseph County are preparing for a first-of-its-kind event in the name of a fundraiser for a child-welfare agency.

Eight couples are expected to take part in the inaugural Dancing With the St. Joseph County Stars event March 7 at Glen Oaks Community College’s Nora Hagen Theatre.

Organizers are trying to get word out early on, as the venue has a seating capacity of almost 300 and tickets are expected to sell out.

Linda Kline, representing the Child Abuse and Neglect agency of St. Joseph County, said the idea of a ballroom-dance competition involving local residents came from a brainstorming session.

The list of couples is subject to change, but for now participants are Deborah and Tadd Davis of Colon; Mendon attorney Christine Yancey and her husband, Charlie; Sturgis Director of Public Safety Geoff Smith and his wife, Stephanie; Constantine Township officials Mark and Marti Brown; Three Rivers City Manager Joe Bippus and his wife, Cheryl; Maria Oliveras and Jose Hernandez from Sturgis-based Centro VIDA; and Jessica and Matthew Mosher, from Three Rivers.

More details and ticket information may be found on the website dancingsjcstars.webs.com.
