5th Annual Dancing Stars of Greenwich Charity Fundraiser for Abilis Brings on the Glitz and Glamour on September 23

 

Charity Dance-Off by The Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Greenwich Features Celebrity Judges and Dancers — Competing for the Coveted Mirrorball Trophy


 

The fifth annual Dancing Stars of Greenwich charity dance-off
hosted by The Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Greenwich 
to benefit Abilis, is twirling in on Saturday, September 23, 2023,

at the Tamarack Country Club in Greenwich.

Tickets to this fabulous event, full of incredible dancing, live music, a VIP champagne reception, silent auction, dinner, and celebrity judges, sell out quickly every year, so it is recommended to reserve tickets today
 by calling 917-664-4680.


 

This year’s event features celebrity judges including Brendan Fraser, a celebrated and award-winning actor fresh off winning an Academy Award for Best Actor for his film The WhaleMeg Tolin Piper, a Broadway actress and dancer; Eric “Champagne” Shoji, a DJ and song producer and international DJ/emcee; and Ali Wentworthactress, comedian, producer, host of her podcast Go Ask Ali and New York Times bestselling author, who will be the event’s MC - or Mistress of Ceremonies. 


 

“We are so excited for this year’s Dancing Stars of Greenwich event,” said Amy Montimurro, CEO and president of Abilis. “Dancing Stars is truly one of our favorite events each year and are so appreciative to The Fred Astaire Studio of Greenwich who continue to support Abilis in this very special way. We are thrilled to have our wonderful celebrity judges and master of ceremonies back year-after-year — and the incredible dancing stars who give so much of their time to come out and support Abilis with their wonderful performances. Funds raised at the event go toward supporting the acquisition and renovation of new program space for Abilis, which is greatly needed as we continue to grow above and beyond what the state provides for services, care and needs of children and adults with disabilities. The dancer's and the audience’s support enable us to deliver on our mission to provide high-quality programs and supports to our more than 800 Abilis program participants and residents throughout
Fairfield County.”


 

Dancing Stars of Greenwich mirrors the hit TV show and features a Dancing with the Stars dance competition where community and business leaders are paired with Fred Astaire Dance professionals to perform their own personalized routines with their own dance style of their choice. The celebrity panel of judges determines the winner of the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy. A People’s Choice Award is given to the dancer who raises the most in donations for Abilis. 


 

Dancers at the event include: Afton Fraser of Greenwich; Amy Farber of Greenwich; Danielle Mini of Greenwich; Elaine Madona of Greenwich; Dr. Jennnifer Werely of Greenwich; Kristy Hickman of Norwalk; Lauren Eisler and Benjamin (Benji) Rabinowitz of New York, New York; Paul Scicchitano of Greenwich; Shari Aser of Greenwich; Terry Lamantia Cataldo of Greenwich; Make Mays-Green and Kenny Green of Stamford; and Trevor Crow of Greenwich. 


 

Each dancer is paired with a professional partner from The Fred Astaire Studio. Those dancers are: Elmar Schmidt and Clemens Lengenfelder, co-owners of The Fred Astaire Studio of Greenwich, Matthew Ames, Carol Koutouvides and Christian Perry.


 

“Dancing is what we do and hosting Dancing Stars of Greenwich is just one of our favorite events ever,” noted Elmar Schmidt. “Local stars and leaders in the community have been training for months to compete just like on television. A panel of celebrity judges along with the audience selects the winner who will win the coveted Mirrorball trophy. It is so exciting!”


 

Brendan and Afton Fraser have been long-time supporters of Abilis and Dancing Stars of Greenwich throughout the years and are this year’s co-hosts. They are also parents to a son with disabilities and know personally how crucial programs and supports like Abilis offers are to families with children and adults with disabilities. 


 

“We are proud to support Dancing Stars of Greenwich and Abilis to help raise funds for Abilis’ programs and services,” said Afton Fraser. “We know how much it means to a family to have an organization like Abilis that can help provide training, education, social and employment opportunities for individuals and their families.It can mean the difference between living an isolated life and one full of friends and with meaning. They are really a great organization, and we are happy to help in any way."
