MARQUETTE — With Dancing With Our Stars, Marquette County Style just around the corner, couples are already hard at work trying to raise funds.
Angela and Jimmy Johnson hosted a fundraiser Friday night at their family restaurant, the Casa Calabria. For thirty dollars a ticket, patrons could enjoy all the lasagna and garlic bread they could eat. The money from this fundraiser and the votes for favorite dance team goes to support the UP Hospice Foundation. The Johnson’s will be dancing the jive.
“A lot of the lower body is involved so it’s actually great because Angela is pregnant. So it’s a lot of fast feet and they’re catching on pretty quickly and we’ve only had a few rehearsals here,” said Dance Pro Jacob DeLong.
“We are not dancers. Our dancing experience is wedding receptions, but we’re excited. We’ve had a couple practices and it’s been exciting trying to learn how to dance together,” said Angela.
“I feel pretty special to be nominated for this event. We’ve been looking forward to it for a very long time,” added Jimmy.

The stars will strut their stuff on May 26th.
