Hagerstown, MD (PRWEB) May 10, 2014
The 2013 Dancing with the stars event held at Hager Hall in Hagerstown was a huge hit and 2014 promises once again to be an event to remember, as the glitz and glamor of the ABC hit TV show comes to Hagerstown.
Last year’s winners Bob Rankin and Brenna Bacon-Ranielle raised $14,450.
Dr. David Solberg and his daughter Alessandre Solberg were partners and took second place in the competition raising $9,330.
Raychel Harvey-Jones and Irv Easterday came in a respectable third place raising $6,331. HMTV6 News Anchor Harvey-Jones was hampered by a last minute severe injury which stopped her dancing on the night of the event, the couple were joined by Easterdays’ long time partner and wife Betty.
“I was so upset to not be able to dance fully on the night but I gained a new family in the Easterday’s and the other competitors it was so much fun training with them all. Despite my injury I want to say a big thank you to Potomac Dental and Greg Dahbura of Hub Scrub LLC, in Hagerstown for their support and sponsorship.” said Harvey-Jones
“ARC are a wonderful non –profit and I was thrilled to be able to support them and this event,” said Greg Dahbura, President and CEO of Hub City Scrap, LLC. “ARC of Washington County promotes community involvement and equality adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, they are an asset to our community.”
The total amount raised at the event was over $100,000 and ARC hope to raise more in the 2014 event to be held at Hager Hall on October 18, 2014.
“I would say to all businesses across the region support this necessary cause and the upcoming event. In recent months we have witnessed first hand with the death of Robert Saylor in Frederick, how both the public and law enforcement welcome education when it comes to working with those adults with developmental problems. For the amazing work of ARC to continue funding is needed,” added Dahbura.
