1st ever local spin on “Dancing with the Stars,” where community members step up as Dancers and Judges to raise money and awareness for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mercer, Auglaize, & Van Wert Counties. Local professional dancers have generously donated dance lessons to produce a spectacular dance competition.

Dancing with the BIG Stars will take place on Saturday, November 15, 2014 at the Overdrive in Celina.

If you can’t make the show that day you can support your favorite dancer by voting for them online at www.bbbsma.com and click on “Dancing with the BIG Stars” logo. Every vote is $5 and the dancer that raises the most money will receive the Big Star Award. You can also join in on their extra fundraising efforts.

All money raised will stay local and help make and support matches of our five youth mentoring programs. Mentors help these children to stay in school, off drugs, and away from violence. They also help children to boost self-esteem and learn how to deal with bullying and depression. Your support will make a BIG impact on your community.

The Brotherhood Singers have become an annual hit in Spain; they have also traveled to Portugal, Italy, Switzerland, Canada and, most recently, Russia. Their music is rich and complex and arises out of a shared inner-city experience that stresses faith, learning, and communicative arts.

States anniversary committee member Rachel Barber, "We first hosted the Brotherhood Singers in 2011, and they were a big hit! We know that those attending will be both entertained and inspired by the Brotherhood Singers' beautiful harmonies. All are welcome!"
