Vote for your favorite Dancing For A Brand New Me couple

They’ve been dancing for five years, helping raise awareness about domestic violence and fundraising for Lassen Family Services. Now, in the weeks leading up to the annual show, supporters can vote for their favorite couple to win the People’s Choice Award.

Set for Oct. 19 and 20, six couples will take to the stage and show off their moves for the fifth annual Dancing For A Brand New Me competition.

Each team is comprised of a professional dancer and a star from the community. This year, Alex McElrath and Shantel Thompson, Seanne McElrath and Shannon Cook, Celeste Wiser and Larry McCracken, Doria Dalu and Pastor Rick Conrad, Luke Peterson and Kristie Jimenez and Terra Avilla and David Teeter, are practicing their routines and are ready to wow the judges.

However, while the dance couples are still perfecting their chorography, supporters have the opportunity to vote for their favorite pair: $1 is one vote for a couple, according to Lassen Family Services Deputy Director Kirby Lively.

Supporters can vote either by visiting the Lassen Family Services office, located at 1306 Riverside Dr., calling 257-5459 or by visiting the 2018 Dancing For A Brand New Me People’s Choice Award fundraising page on Facebook.

All proceeds go to Lassen Family Services to help serve local victims of abuse.

The theme for this year’s Dancing For a Brand New Me is Voyage Across the Seas, and tickets are on sale and can be purchased at the Riverside Drive Location, or over the phone by credit card.

For more information about the event, call 257-5459.
