Dance-lovers and philanthropists alike showed up in support of North Georgia's Dancing Stars earlier this month.

The unique fundraising event pairs notable locals with pro dancers to bring attendees a night of choreographed dance, all in the name of charity.

Proceeds from the competition benefit Primary Healthcare Centers, a group of nonprofit community health centers that provide services to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay.

So far, the 2019 competition has raised more than $134,600 toward its $150,000 goal, though the push isn't over just yet.

Those eager to support their favorite competitors through sponsorship dollars can donate online at ngdstars.com until they've reached their financial goals.
