13th annual Dancing with The ARK’s Stars
Dancing with The ARK’s Stars fundraising event pairs local personalities with professional dancers to support the many programs of The ARK as it provides essential services for families with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia.
The ARK of South Carolina will host its 13th annual Dancing with The ARK’s Stars fundraising event on May 13, 2023. A professional pilot, a principal and editor are among the local personalities trading their day jobs for dancing shoes to raise money for Alzheimer’s or a related dementia. The fundraiser, which pairs local personalities with professional dancers, will take place at Lowcountry Conference Center Summerville Hilton, 406 Sigma Dr., at 7 p.m. Proceeds from this premier fundraiser support the many programs of The ARK as it provides essential services for families with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia. The ARK offers respite care, support groups, caregiver consultation, caregiver education workshops, resource referrals, law enforcement and first responder training, community learning programs, and rural services development. The organization serves five counties: Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester, and Orangeburg. Tickets are $85 single or $160 per couple in advance and will increase at the door. General admission tickets include open bar, heavy hors d'oeuvres, dancing, and a silent auction bidder number. Seating is on a first come, first serve basis. Cocktail attire is requested. Similar to the hit TV show “Dancing with the Stars,” three couples will dance in each round, with the two couples receiving the most judges’ votes competing in a “dance off” to win the Judge’s Award. The couple receiving the most votes by dollars wins the mirror ball trophy for People’s Choice Award. Votes are $10 each and can be cast in advance at TheARKofSC.org or at the event.
