DANCING WITH THE STARS, 2016
The 2016 DANCING WITH THE STARS, THE GOOD SHEPHERD WAY, was a huge success – it far exceeded our wildest imaginations. We raised over $360,000 for our students and it’s all a result of the work and dedication of the couples and choreographers seen here. Thank you to the nearly 1,000 people in attendance and all the volunteers and Marriott staff who made the evening the amazing night that it was!
CONGRATULATIONS to this year’s FAN FAVORITE, Sr. Tracey Dugas & Fr. Tim Hedrick (choreographer: Jennifer Collins) and the MIRROR BALL championship winners (a tie between) Nicole Todaro & Joseph Zolfo (choreographer: Gina Iserman) and Joan Gogreve & Johnny Fitzpatrick (choreographer: Sarah Stuckey).
We are grateful to God for the grace bestowed on us at The Good Shepherd School, through this incredible event. It would not have been possible without the support, efforts and prayers of our event sponsors and benefactors, attendees, volunteers and participants. In the end, we know that our students are the winners!
