Where: Doubletree Biltmore, 115 Hendersonville Road.
When: Saturday, Oct. 20, 6 p.m. $50. Info: http://dancingwiththestarsasheville.eventbrite.com
Why: Kirstie Alley would be proud of Asheville's celebrities and community leaders. Everyone from Asheville Mayor Terry Bellamy to United Way CEO and president David Bailey will put on their dancing shoes for Dancing with the Stars of Asheville, a local take on the national TV show. Fierce elimination-style competition will weed out anyone with two left feet, leaving only the most limber dancers on the floor.
The evening is more than a chance to watch our favorite politicians and nonprofit leaders get a little goofy. Money will be raised to support the construction of a splash pad water recreation feature at the new Dr. Wesley Grant Sr. Southside Community Center. The goal is to help keep Asheville residents healthy and active next summer and for many years to come. So get out your score card and get ready to watch Asheville's most prominent community members move their feet.
