11th Annual Dancing with the Vernon Stars

Another hugely successful Dancing with the Vernon Stars took place Friday evening at the Vernon Lodge.

The 11th annual event is a major fundraiser for the North Okanagan Hospice Society and featured performances by 10 pairs of dancers and a party by DJ Haymaker.

The teams fundraised for several months with the goal of reaching $5,000.

The teams performed for a sold out crowd Friday and Jaye Coward and Sean Ling-Allen won two awards - Fan Favourite and Judges' Choice.

Sarah Moorhouse and Darcy Helme won the Community Favourite award and raised over $23,000.

The event goal is to reach $150,000 for NOHS.

Final numbers from Friday are expected early this week.
