Dancing with the Stars was held on Friday, March 1 at the Dever Stage in Parenzo. The event was hosted by the Student Government Association Class of 2015 Council to raise money for Shriners Children Hospital in Springfield, MA.

The event commenced with the introduction of hosts Tom “Tall Tom” Waghorne and Lauren LeRoux, as well as all six-partnered contestants.

The Class of 2015 council was able to donate a total amount of $2000 to Shriners Children Hospital.

Kaiya Hill, a business management major and also the treasure on the council said, “I am still in disbelief as to how this came about. I was not expecting us to even make up to $600.”

Courtney Keddy, an SGA Rep for the council also took to Facebook to express her excitement about the show.

Keddy said, “I smiled the entire drive home tonight! I am so proud of our council for putting on such a successful event! And even more proud that we are donating almost $2000 to a hospital that is very close to my heart. I can’t wait to present that check to Shriners hospital! So proud of us!”

The dancers also taking part in the fund-raising by collecting door-to-door donations, also shared their views on the show and would therefore encourage it as an annual event.
