MARQUETTE — One of Marquette County’s premier events is back for another round!
Dancing with our Stars, Marquette County Style is back and tonight the cast has been revealed. Big names like Patty Barton and Scott Knaffla of Barton Associates and Bill and Meghan Digneit of Double Trouble DJ’s will grace the stage, all in the name of a good cause.
“These stars don’t know what to expect and it’s very similar to what a hospice patient and their family might be going through when they enroll in our services. But, just like we do with a hospice patient and their families, we give them a team of experts to take them through this journey of their life,” said Lindsay Hemmila, Director of Community Services for UP Home Health and Hospice.
“We’re really happy to be able to participate and to get involved with this event. It’s such a great event. There’s so many wonderful things that hospice does in the community, and the hospice foundation. We’re just thrilled to be a part of it,” said Amanda Filizetti, who practices Elder Law.
“I just look forward to some scheduled dance time with my wife. You know, we’re both working, two kids, some alone time to practice dancing? We’ll take it!” added A.J. Filizetti, the HR and Finance Director for Gwinn Schools.
The competition raises money for the UP Hospice foundation. Fans can vote for their favorite couple by paying ten dollars per vote. The couples have until May 26th to perfect their moves. Stay with us in the coming months as we follow their progress!
