Professional dancers will be paired with local celebrities as they compete not only in dancing but in helping to raise funds for the Noon Rotary.

“Hosting an event like this as our annual fund raiser not only plays a major role in helping our Rotary club fulfill our sponsorship of community programs but it also helps us in fostering the mission of Rotary,” says Kraig Barber, President of the Fort Dodge Noon Rotary. “Over the last three years, our club has presented almost $62,000 for various projects and scholarships.”

Other highlights of the evening will be the silent auction of items donated by area businesses and the Fish Bowls where guest will be able to “Vote” for their favorite dance teams with their dollars.
