By  | 

THE WOODLANDS, TX – Each year, volunteers take to the dance floor to compete for votes and raise funds for The Woodlands Family YMCA. Every dollar raised from the purchase of tables, seats, auction items and votes goes to the YMCA Annual Campaign, which makes community-strengthening Y programs like swim lessons, after school care and youth sports available to everyone regardless of age, income or background.

The Woodlands Family YMCA’s “Dancing with The Woodlands Stars” is a unique charity event that will be held on Thursday, April 12 at 6 p.m. at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott and features 12 local leaders as the live dance entertainment.

Patricia’s Dance Lessons has partnered with the Y to provide the dance partners, lessons and choreography for the community stars.
