Thank you to all who made the first annual “Dancing With the Stews” fundraiser a huge success. We were able to raise over $22,000. for the children of Fresh and Green Academy! This will provide three meals a day and free education for some of Ethiopia’s neediest children for the next five months and bring us closer to our goal of building a larger school with boarding facilities.
The evening featured a full length “Dancing With the Stars” type show with six flight attendant/professional dancing teams. Our VIP guests enjoyed front row seating at the show and a special reception with hors’deourves, champagne, and open bar. Our MC, Rene Foss, of “Around the World in a Bad Mood” fame, gracefully led us on an unforgettable adventure filled with talent, beauty, and humor. Celebrity judges, Melanie LaPatin, Sid Grant, and Pam Ann each added their own unique flair to the show and truly entertained the guests.
The flight attendants donated their time and new found talent to pull off an amazing show to benefit the children. Capezio, Bobby Tan of Dance Z World, and Donna Inc. donated the shoes and costumes that created the vision of beauty that was “Dancing With the Stews”.
The show was streamed live and viewers were able to text to vote for their favorite team. The prize for the most money raised before the event went to Chevy and Solomon. Sacha and Tobi won the most votes and therefore the most donations during the event. K-Mo and Jana won the prize for the “Judges Favorite” and the overall winners who took home the Mirror Ball trophy, were Chevy and Solomon. While the voting is over you are still able to make a donation in your favorite teams name!
