      11th Anniversary Of Dancing With The Martin Stars

      Raises Over $200,000

        If Len Goodman, one of the judges from the popular
      Dancing with the Stars television series, had attended
      Martin County Healthy Start Coalition’s local Dancing
      with the Martin Stars event he surely would have given
      it a 10 out of 10!
        Healthy Start, which offers support and education
      to pregnant women and infants, hosted their signature
      fundraising event on Sept. 24 at the Lyric Theatre.
        The event was a resounding success, raising over
      $200,000. Thanks to the hard work of all the dancers and their
      supporters, these funds will go towards essential programs in
      Martin County that help ensure every baby is born healthy,
      every mother is supported, and every father is involved.
        The format for the evening included a dynamic, local
      cast of nine Martin County “celebrities,” each paired with a   Cast Group Shot, left to right: Leah Landau, Noor Yono, Tanya Chaves, Rabih Kashouty, Jane Hallick, Craig Galvin,
