This year’s gala is scheduled for Oct. 11 at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology’s Sports and Recreation Center. The evening features dinner, dance competition featuring the local stars and a silent auction. The winner of the 2018 event was Jocelyn Bean.
More than 1,100 guests generally attend each year. Since the first event in 2007, the series has helped raise more than $1.6 million for Chances and Services for Youth programs.
“Without events like Dancing with the Stars we really wouldn’t be able to implement all of the after school programs, our summer camps, our mentoring program with Big Brothers Big Sisters [and] some of our other programs,” Hallock said.
Founded in 1971, the agency has provided resources to help the state’s most vulnerable youth. Last year, it assisted more than 9,000 children and families.
Programs that benefit from Dancing with the Stars include Out of School Club, Camp RAVE, Safe Kids/Car Seats, Teen Court, Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Coalition, iLEAD and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Wabash Valley.
