Brookfield’s Fred Astaire Dancing with the Stars Fundraiser

Saturday, January 26, 2019
5:30pm Cocktail Party; 7:30pm Show

Join us for the third annual Brookfield’s Dancing Stars competition to benefit The Women’s Center and Family & Children’s Aid. Held at the Ridgefield Playhouse, this year’s event will take place on the same stage where dancers such as Chita Rivera, Chicago’s Bebe Neuwirth, Ben Vereen and, more recently, Tony Dovolani & Karina Smirnoff- among others have graced the stage. Now our own “stars” will twirl, gyrate, bop and rock with Fred Astaire professionals while world-renowned celebrity judges vote on who is the best dancer- all to raise money for the charities that are close to their hearts.  The evening includes a champagne reception cocktail party, silent auction items and the ability for audience members to “vote” on their favorite dancer throughout the night.
