Dancing With Our Stars!
Posted on Monday, March 28th, 2016 at 11:08 am by Preston
Our local Atascadero Library fundraiser, Dancing with Our Stars is THE event to be at! This sold out event paired 8 community stars, most of whom had never danced before, with a local dancing pro to learn a dance routine and present it. The community stars & dance pros had months to learn, and walk away with a bigger appreciation for dancing! This year's winner was community star Mary Kay Mills and dance instructor Ernie Gamble, as they raised the most money for the Library! Friends of the Atascadero Library, headed by Jeanne Malik, began this event seven years ago, and they have raised over $250,000.00 for the Library!!! K-Jon's Manager, Angela Cisneros, was a community star in 2014, and she has continued her dance involvement in the non-competing dance parts of the show working with Director Extraordinaire, Frank Sanchez. Frank has transitioned the event from a presentation of dances to an incredible show with singing, comedy, as well as, dancing!! Oh, and did I mention dinner is included? Another K-Jon's staff member, Leigh Livick, has been part of Friends of the Atascadero Library for 15 years! She has volunteered for ticket sales and various other behind-the-scenes jobs for Dancing with Our Stars. Pamela Maxvil, another K-Jon's staff, volunteered this year as a table hostess. Individually and as a whole, K-Jon's Fine Jewelers believes in our community and supports it not only financially, but with our time and efforts, as well! Make sure YOU are there next year!!
