“Swinging with the Stars” is modeled after the wildly popular “Dancing with the Stars” program. Featuring seven local celebrities, paired with professional dancers, each couple will dance and compete to take home the “People’s Choice Award” and the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy. The audience decides who takes home the grand prize trophy as they cast votes for their favorite dancing couple through donating to Sparrow Clubs. Each dollar equals one vote. The event will also showcase local dance talent.
All money raised will be used locally to help Sparrow Clubs continue serving children in medical need and empowering youth to make a difference in our communities. Sparrow Clubs is proof that you’re never too young to make a difference. As the nation’s only youth-based charity of its kind, Sparrow Clubs not only provides financial and emotional support for critically ill children and their families, but also empowers young people to help a child through charitable service experiences. Sparrow Clubs is centered on the concept of “empowering kids to help kids in medical need.”
