Move over, Tony Dovolani! Out of the way, Derek Hough! It’s time for the real dancing stars of Cobb County to shine—and for a great cause!
The 4th Annual Dancing With The Stars of Cobb County will take place on September 16. The night of dinner, drinks and dancing will feature local community leaders alongside Cobb’s very own professional dancers — all vying for the coveted mirror ball trophy. The best part is that ALL of the proceeds benefit Loving Arms Cancer Outreach.
There isn’t anyone whose family hasn’t been affected by cancer in some way or another. Loving Arms Cancer Outreach is a nonprofit organization (501C3 charitable status) that deeply cares for cancer patients and their families in Northwest Georgia, making the cancer journey more manageable.
“Our only requirement for helping someone is that they have a diagnosis of cancer, no particular kind, just cancer,” says Loving Arms leadership. The organization helps with concerns like providing gas money and paying power bills while medical bills pile up or jobs have been lost.
Last year, the 2016 Dancing with the Stars of Cobb County event raised $76,000 for families to receive help with gas and groceries. Let’s help them raise even more than that this year! Here’s how:
SHAKE YOUR MONEY MAKER
It’s so easy to get in on the action! You actually donate by VOTING for your favorite dancing couples. There will be 10 stellar couples hitting the dance floor, and your “votes” are what wins one couple the trophy, plus the bragging rights to say they’ve raised the most money. Each “vote” is customizable with several price levels available. For more info on these 20 competitors (and how they made it to the stage), check out the event’s about us page.

Of course, we encourage you to vote for ALL of your favorites, but we have to shamelessly give a shout-out to Couple 6 —Kathryn Harbour and pro dancer Chris Bosak — personal friends of Little Black Dress | Little Red Wagon Magazine! We don’t want to twist your arm but …. twist, twist! Cast your vote and learn more about why we love them by clicking here.
TICKETS TO THE EVENT
Of course, the most fun means of donating is attending the actual performance to see the stars up close and personal!
You can buy tickets to dinner before the show or tickets for just the show. Tables are also available for groups or businesses. Choose from premier reserved tables, reserved tables or ballroom seating. Just be sure to tango on over there quickly because space is limited and tickets are going FAST.
