The hype just kept building…night after night, and I knew Saturday night would be the stellar night and it was…the energy in the room was awesome and it all came from you! Enjoy the buzz as this town is buzzin!" said Mary Kendall in an e-mail to our dancers and the committee.

To our dancers, "We hope you enjoyed your experience being either a COMMUNITY STAR or one of our COMMUNITY DANCERS. We so appreciate each and every one of you. Every $$$$ that was donated will help replenish a lot of food pantries at a time when those shelves are pretty baron," said Mary Kendall.
Fantastic additional entertainment got the crowd involved: break dancing by 61Syx from Grand Rapids; singing by Sylvia Yacoub, Muskegon native and top 10 on The Voice; Andrea Mathews, singer and Muskegon native; and the Hans Kliphuis competitive ballroom dancers.
A warm thank you goes out to John King, Darci Reinink, Mary Gee and Bob Roossien for serving as guest judges for our event.
