      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
      professional dance instructor. These brave, novice dancers not
      only put their best foot forward to shine on the dance floor,
