Dancing with the Abilene Stars 2014

dwtas1 thankyou-web

This year, another 12 wonderful dancers raised more than $300,000 for Hendrick Home for Children at the 2014 Dancing with the Abilene Stars, Jan. 9 at the Abilene Civic Center! Special thanks and appreciation go to the dancers, event volunteers, and generous donors who voted for their favorite dancers and made the night a success. Hendrick Home sweetheart Shea Woodard Hall, event chair and 2011 dancer, led the amazing team it took to handle the lights, cameras, catering, decorations, and overall planning and coordination: she is our “prima ballerina assoluta!” Thank you, Shea! Thank you, all!
