Boogie With the Stars is a New Year’s Eve dinner and dance based on the concept of the very successful TV show Dancing with the Stars. And it’s back this year.
The event will take place on New Year’s Eve, hosted by Paz Milbourn, Peter Weedon, and the Prince George Hospice Society. This is a biannual event that was postponed last year due to COVID-19.
“We are excited and optimistic that we will be again able to gather by New Years Eve, and look forward to hosting this event,” said Donna Flood, Hospice executive director. “This is a ‘one of a kind’ event that supports four local charities and all money raised by dancers stays in our community.”
Four charities are putting forward dancers for this year’s competition, and each of the dancers will put their best foot forward to raise money for their charity.
The charities and dancers are:
- Big Brothers Big Sisters – Chelsey and Andrew McDermout
- Prince George Symphany Orchrestra – To be Announced
- Humane Society – Angela McLaren and Julia Dillabough
Prince George Hospcie Society – Kyle Sampson and Kate McGowan, Don and Alicica Fitzpatrick Jana Phillips and a surprise partner.
Dancers will be asking the community to support their fund-raising initiatives. One hundred per cent of the money raised by the dance team goes to their specific charity.
This year there will be three prizes the dancers are competing for:
- Best overall dance numbers – lead judge Judy Russell
- Most money raised
- Fan favourite – the community will vote on their favourite dance couple
