The Stars, the drama, the glamour and the glitter are back as U.P. Home Health & Hospice proudly presents the Fourth Annual “Dancing with the Stars Marquette County Style” to benefit the U.P. Hospice Foundation. “Dancing with the Stars Marquette County Style” will be held on Thursday, May 26, 2016 at Forest Roberts Theatre on the campus of Northern Michigan University. Doors open at 5:00 PM with the show beginning at 7:00 PM. Hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will be provided. The fundraiser will benefit the U.P. Hospice Foundation and its programs. 100% of proceeds raised will be donated back to Hospice patients and their families!
The U.P. Hospice Foundation supports the “Make-A-Memory” program which is a mini-version of the nationally recognized Make-a-Wish Foundation. Support has helped to create family reunions, fishing trips, or building a wheelchair ramp to enable a family to be mobile once again. The Foundation provides technology such as hearing aids and tablet computers for better communication with family and friends. The Foundation has facilitated one person’s dream to meet the President of the United States, and another’s commitment to be the Matron of Honor at her Great-Granddaughters wedding, albeit, virtually through the use of an iPad that transported her to a California beach.
Local “Stars” will be announced LIVE on Tuesday, March 1, 2016 on TV6 at 6:00 PM. Marquette County dance professionals have come together to help these local “Stars” compete for the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy. Our Superior Design film crew will follow the “Stars” at their practices for several months and will post online video updates of their progress. There will also be a Fan Favorite Trophy given to the Star couple that collects the most online votes from Monday, March 7, until 6:30 PM on Thursday, May 26, along with all paper stub votes the evening of the performance.
Tickets for the event will go on sale on Monday, March 7, 2016 at 8:00 AM by calling 225-4545.
