      10th Anniversary Of Dancing With The Martin Stars

      Raises $115,511

         The 10th anniversary of Dancing with the Martin Stars, the signature fundraiser for the
      Martin County Healthy Start Coalition, was a spectacular evening with previous star alumni
      headlining the show.
         The event was held at the Starstruck Performing Arts Center on Sept. 25. Livestream
      tickets to watch the show online were also available for the first time.
         In past years, stars were paired with a professional dance instructor to learn and perform
      a dance. To celebrate the 10th anniversary, Aubrey Campbell, associate executive director,
      and event coordinator, recruited ten previous stars who paired up as five competing teams.
      A professional dance coach trained each couple for the competition.
         Participating dancers were: Cheree Ramirez and Rachel Terlizzi, coached by Marianella
      Tobar; Rosi Shepard and Casey Cass, coached by Craig Calvin; Shaun Kelly and Randy
      Pennington, coached by Marianella Tobar; Maggie Slobasky and Fabi Gonzalez, coached
      by Bob Murray; and Andrea Levy and Patty Morris, coached by Leah Landau.
                                                                                  Dancing with the Martin Stars 2021 stars, coaches, judges, professional dancers and

      Hosts The Purr-Fect Event

         Supporters of the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast who were looking to connect
      through cats and wine found the “purr-fect” event. The Kitty Catalina Wine Mixer was
      recently held in the Palm City shelter’s Memorial Garden and raised nearly $2,000 to
      benefit the animals. In addition, two cats were adopted during the event.
         Outdoors, guests sampled wine and light bites from these Florida-based wineries:
      Secret Gardens Winery & Farm in Sebring, Quantum Leap Winery in Orlando and San
      Sebastian Winery in St. Augustine. Inside the shelter, supporters cuddled cats and kittens
      that were available for adoption. Cat adoption fees were waived during the event.
         “This event gave supporters an opportunity to mix and mingle with friends and
