RECORD YEAR for Dancing With The ARK’S Stars!

Around 475 people attended the 2018 Dancing with The ARK’s Stars on March 10. The ARK raised over $102,000 to help local Alzheimer’s families find hope and relief. Proceeds from this event allow us to continue to provide services and education to families living with Alzheimer’s and related dementia in the community.

Janice Stephens Jolly and professional partner Shi Johnson took home the Mirror Ball trophy as The People’s Choice winner. Janice raised more than $18,000. Elizabeth Donehue and professional partner Shi Johnson received the Judges’ Choice trophy for their beautiful performance of the Tango.

“It was amazing night and great to see the support of the community for such an important cause. Everyone did a fantastic performing, said Megan Severn, Development Director of The ARK. Our celebrity dancers did such a phenomenal job fundraising and creating awareness about The ARK leading up to the event”. 

A big thank you to all of our celebrity dancers, our professional dance partners from Ballroom Dance Charleston, our incredible volunteers, everyone who voted and came to the event. This was an amazing evening because of all of you! We are so thankful for our fantastic sponsors and supporters.
