DWTS Fort Mill raises $85,000 for middle school sports programs!

The Fort Mill School District Athletic Board is proud to announce that the 4th Annual Dancing with the Stars – Fort Mill Event (held February 21, 2015) was another record breaking event.  The new venue, The Point Arts & Rec Center, was the perfect location for over 650 attendees to enjoy an elegant evening of entertainment, provided by six local celebrities. 

These contestants partnered with professional instructors to provide several amazing dance routines, one of which included using a full size John Deere tractor as a prop!  All of the money raised from the evening will go towards a very worthy cause – middle school student athletes in Fort Mill.

Dancers competed in fundraising (sponsorships, donations and ticket sales), two dance routines and crowd appeal. The goal - the Mirror Ball Champion trophy and much needed funds to help our student athletes in Fort Mill.

This year’s awards winners were:

  • Dr. Scott Richardson and Gabriela Sevillano-Solomakha– Mirror Ball Champion
  • Dr. Scott Richardson and Gabriela Sevillano-Solomakha - Dance Champion
  • Dr. Scott Frattaroli and Aubrie Salzman – Crowd Favorite Champion

But the real winners are our student athletes. This year’s event cleared approximately $85,000; last year’s event netted just over $40,000. 

2015 Celebrities & Instructors:

  • Dr. Michele Boyne and Ian McAreavy
  • Mr. Ron Edwards and Stacy Yergens
  • Dr. Scott Frattaroli and Aubrie Salzman
