We're proud to announce that attorney Kelly Alfreds will be competing in this year's Dancing With The ARK's Stars on March 14th at Pinewood Preparatory School! Steinberg Law Firm has been a supporter of the event for several years, and we are excited about having one of our own attorneys participating as a celebrity dancer. This ballroom dance event is a popular annual fundraiser for The ARK, Alzheimer's Family Support Services in Summerville.
Kelly will be dancing the Rumba and competing against a handful of other local celebrities, including Octavia Mitchell from WCBD News 2 and Kenny Walker, the head football coach at Ashley Ridge High School. Celebrity judges include Sean Harrington, Tauna Longest, and Brad & Jennifer Moranz.
The public is encouraged to vote for their favorite dancers by making donations at The ARK's fundraising website; $10 will buy one vote. Each of the local celebrities has been paired with a professional ballroom dance instructor from Elite Dance International Dance Studio, based in Mt. Pleasant. On the night of the event, four couples will compete in each round and will be scored by a panel of judges. The top two couples with the most points will compete in a final dance-off round. The dancer with the most points will win The Judges' Choice Trophy!
Following each round of the competition, audience members can vote for their favorite dancer. The dancer who gets the most votes (raises the most money) will receive The People's Choice Trophy!
Each dancer has an individual fundraising goal of $5000, and all are working together to raise at least $60,000 for The ARK, which has provided comprehensive support to families affected by Alzheimer's for over 19 years. Dancers are encouraging their friends and family to donate to the cause and help give families the support and information they need to "successfully navigate their Alzheimer's journey."
