Night Among the Stars supports Lacombe Big Brothers Big Sisters

Dancing competition bring together local celebrities, professional dancers for celebration, gala

Night Among the Stars is coming to Lacombe in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lacombe and District (BBBS) and the Dancers Edge Parents Association (DEPA).

On Feb. 8, local Lacombe celebrities will be paired up with proffesionals dancers to put on Dancing With the Stars-like performances.

“It is a dance-off style event. We have local celebrities and dance pros. They will be performing to music, they will be scored and we will see who the winner is,” Organizer Paige Jones said.

This is the first annual event, with DEPA expecting a sold out Lacombe Memorial Centre — with over 380 people attending.

“We are hoping to sell out and we have about four tables left. A sold out room would mean 380 people are coming. We are hoping to fundraise a minimum of $12,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters,” Jones said.

Supporting the community is part of DEPA’s mandate, and supporting BBBS is part of their mandate to help youth.

“Our kids are in dance and it is a good match for us because they are always helping youth in the community,” Jones said.

Jones is excited to host an event that is all about community, with dancers being local business owners, farmers and even the Lacombe County Reeve, Paula Law.

“It is nice to have people from the community. It brings everyone together,” she said.

Each celebrity dancer has a mandate to fundraise for the event, with proceeds going directly to supporting the cause.

Donations can be made at https://nightamongthestars.myevent.com. More information and tickets can also be bought at that website.

Local Celbrities include:

  • Lacombe Massage Therapy
  • Paula Law
  • Curt Belich
  • Chad Ryckman

“They can donate to each of the dancers on the website,” Jones added.
