2017 Dancing with the Horry County Stars raises $182,800 for early college education
The 10th season of Dancing with the Horry County Stars, held on Saturday, Nov. 18, raised $182,880 -- The most money raised during the event since its inception.
The money benefits the Horry County Schools Early College High School, which helps students graduate high school with an associates degree. Those students can get a job out of high school or continue on to a four-year college.
Dancing with the Horry County Stars works like this - community stars have a couple months to raise donations and practice with a local dance professional. During the event, spectators continue to donate to "vote" for their favorite star or pro. Judges pick the Ballroom Skills winner and the top three fundraisers also take home a trophy.
Congratulations to this year's winners:
Ballroom Skills Winner - Dr. Holly Glover and Robert Rodgers
1st Place Money Winner - Jeff Sisk and Anastasiia ($45,670)
2nd Place Money Winner - Jean King and George Uhrig ($37,223)
3rd Place Money Winner - Dr. Holly Glover and Robert Rodgers ($27,325)
