The twist to this competition is that the winning couple receiving the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy will not be chosen by their talent or technique, but by which couple raises the most money in their pre-fundraising efforts and voting boxes at the shows. All contestants are currently pre-fundraising and forms can be found on several websites; www.wrmj.com, www.mercerschools.org, www.aledotimesrecord.com, www.aledomainstreet.com and on Facebook – Mercer County “Dancing with the Stars”. Just click on the links, print the form, fill it out and mail it in or give it to the Contestant. You can vote for more than 1 couple on the form, just circle the couples you are voting for and designate how much by each picture. All donations will go towards the Mercer County High School Track & Field Project. The Committee says, “VOTE EARLY AND VOTE OFTEN”!
Last year’s event raised $24,000 and the audience could not have been happier… they cheered, clapped, made signs, gave a standing ovation and seemed to genuinely and thoroughly enjoy themselves!
So, let’s get this year’s event started on the right foot (hee-hee). Buy your tickets early, get your voting started NOW, and come enjoy some fantastic entertainment with your family and friends!
