Vote for Your Favorites in Geneva's Dancing with the Stars
Geneva has its own dancing stars, and they are raising money for two good causes.
The 2011 Dancing with the Geneva Stars will perform Feb. 5 at the Geneva Cultural Arts Commission's annual fundraiser at Eagle Brook Country Club in Geneva. The event raises funds for the arts commission and the Geneva Academic Foundation.
The public may vote for their favorite couples from now until the competition. Votes cost $1 each, and can be placed on the genevarts.org website starting Jan. 3 or through return envelopes that will arrive with invitations to past attendees.
Reservations for the event are $35 per person, and also can be made online.
Voters can vote as often as they want. Not only is multiple voting allowed, it is encouraged. The couple with the most votes, thus raising the most money, will be declared the winner at the conclusion of the dancing.
