The event was the second-ever sell-out at PBK Hall. 700+ tickets holders supported 12 local “stars,” two incredible charities and enjoyed an evening of salsas, tangos and foxtrots.

This marks the most successful episode of the fundraiser event which started in 2010, and has grossed over three quarters of a million dollars. This year $50,000 was donated to each Literacy for Life and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater VA Peninsula.
Presented by Abbitt Realty, the show was MCed by Anne Conner and offered commentary by judges Arianna Heck, Ann Efemitz and Leighton Strader. More than 600 volunteer hours are donated to this endeavor by stars, professional dancers, committee members and organizers over the course of a year. WilliamsburgStars.com or Facebook.com/WilliamsburgStars for more info.
