2nd Annual “Dancing with the Y Stars” Draws Massive Crowds
It was a packed house at the Wex on Saturday evening as the Civic Center hosted the second “Dancing with the Y Stars” fundraiser for the local YMCA.
Crowds lined up to attend the annual event, which featured seven local “celebrities” along with their professional dance partners, all competing for both a people’s choice award a judge’s choice award.
Members of the audience were able to cast votes for their favorite dancers while a panel of three judges critiqued the performances. Pat Goggin and Alicia Elmore won this year’s Judges’ Choice award by dancing the Jive, with Brian Valice and Hannah Reddy winning the People’s Choice award through a contemporary dance performance.

Organizers said they hope to host a “Dancing with the Y Stars” fundraiser again next year.
Funds raised from “Dancing with the Y Stars” support numerous YMCA programs.
