We had a HUGE amount of help from our new and old friends in L.A. and the result was a resounding success! Not only were we entertained by our very polished dance couples and Marvin Glover’s Band, but we raised thousands of dollars in donations, raffles and the silent auction to help Fresh and Green Academy buy their school property in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
We were honored by the presence of Milica Kennedy Kastner, who flew in From London to accept the Emissary of Excellence Award for her work in championing human rights.
A special congratulations to our Dancing with the Stews Mirror Ball competition winners Jutem Lee and Ron Wild of San Diego and heartfelt thanks to the great efforts of Lam Nguyen, Merle Norman, Jeff White and Brian Nguyen to put together flawless routines and raise money for our cause at the same time!
We would also like to thank everyone for coming out to the spectacle, we hope you were lucky enough to win a prize, and we are glad you took the time to learn about and support our kids and their families at the Fresh and Green Academy.

On May 8th, 2014 we hosted our second annual “Dancing With the Stews” fundraiser! We paired six flight attendants with six world class, champion, professional dancers for a night of entertainment and generosity.
The dancers were judged in three categories: Pre-Event Fundraising, Peoples Choice, and Judges Favorite. Tobi Kretschmer and Cindee Gennaro Sperry took home the Mirror Ball Trophy by winning overall! Fernanda Deren and Solomon Singer won the “Peoples Choice”, Andrew Williams and Esther Frances won the “Judges Favorite” and Tobi and Cindee also won the “Pre-Event Fundraising!
The night started off with a spectacular VIP reception produced by Valerie Jensen and Lou Rudy. Thank you to Juice Press and Freddy Quintos for providing the delicious raw, vegan, kosher, organic food and Dublin 6 for stocking the Bar.
Arthur Murry Manhattan provided practice space, Capezio gave shoes to all of our flight attendants and Jordy let us use their exquisite gowns.
Our Master of Ceremonies was Fox Business News anchor Cheryl Casone and she presented us with a night to remember!
This year was spectacular and everyone there had a great time. If you were unable to make it you can watch the recording of the live stream and still make a donation to help the children at Fresh and Green Academy!
We are already thinking about next year and if you think you want to be a “Dancing Stew” add your name to the list.
