Fort Dodge Noon Rotary will bring out eight local star and celebrity dance couples on November 15th to compete for top honors during the Dancing With The Stars. The evening event will start at 7:00 pm at the Iowa Central Community College Decker Auditorium.

The star-studded evening will include celebrity judges Clarice "Carrie Ann" Thompson, Bruce "Len" Shimkat and Casey "Bruno" Johnson.

The format will closely resemble the widely acclaimed television show with the couples performing their dance routines and the celebrity judges providing their colorful comments. Each of the competing dance couples has also produced a video showing them practicing their dance routines and will be shown during the evening to the audience.

Our Dancing Stars are Harold Olesen and Linda Gallea, Ben and Jenn Crimmins, Bob and Sherri Schill, Marilyn McCubbin and Jerry McMahon, Jesse and Susan Helling, Tom and Patti Donney, Theresa Waechter and Rick Thompson, and Elinor Rutz and Larry Frohwein.

"We really let the couples decide their music and dancing style. The audience will see dance styles like the polka, disco and probably even a combination of more than one style." states Janet Hubbell, 2014-15 President of the Fort Dodge Noon Rotary. "I do know that this will be a very entertaining evening for everyone attending."

The couples will be judged on the following criteria. Fundraising Award will go to the couple that raised the most money prior to the event as well as what is donated in their fishbowl during the evening. The Audience Choice will be determined by the couple with the most red ticket votes from the audience placed in their fishbowl during intermission. The final will be the Dance Event itself. Here the couple's combined scores of the judges as well as the money placed in their fishbowl will be tallied to determine the winner.

Intermission will allow the audience to be treated to a variety of desserts prepared and served by the Iowa Central Community College Culinary Arts Students. Silent Auction items will also be on display and the funds raised from the auction go towards the evening fundraising totals.

Tickets for the event are available from Fort Dodge Noon Rotary members and can be purchased at the door. Ticket price is $10.00 per person.
