You are cordially invited…

     To the most exciting charity gala in Fairfield County each year.  An evening bringing the glamor and style of the legendary dancer, Fred Astaire, himself. The gala treats guest with a chance to experience the thrill of a Dancing with the Stars style contest and professional dance shows by the Fred Astaire Dancers.

     The Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Brookfield plays host to the 3rd annual, semi-formal Brookfield’s Dancing Stars. Guests of the evening will enjoy live music and entertainment. Arriving at the Amber Room Colonnade in Danbury Connecticut from 7pm, attendees will partake in a VIP cocktail reception where they can mix and mingle while cheering on their favorite dancers. They will be able to meet the contestants and judges, peruse the items of the silent and live auction, and enjoy hors d’oeuvre. A formal gourmet surf and turf dinner will follow accompanied by the musical stylings of a live dance band.

     Guests will take to the spacious dance floor for social dancing and before the night finishes the audience will discover which team has raised the most for their charity. Awards will be presented to the winner of the dance contest, top team, the top fundraiser, and giant check will be presented to charity representatives.

     The third Annual Brookfield’s Dancing Stars Gala is a fundraising event full of all the fun, glitz and glamor of the hit TV show Dancing with the Stars!  Local celebrities and community leaders will learn a polished choreographed routine and perform with a professional partner at the gala in a competition mirroring the television show. This format is the one used for ABC’s hit TV show. By donating to a couple, the audience will vote for the dancer they want to win the most. The top fundraiser is given the “People’s Choice Award”. This is like when callers vote for their favorite star on TV.  A panel of celebrity judges will watch and decide the winner of the dancing contest who will receive the coveted mirror ball trophy.

     Past Gala attendees loved the opportunity to dress elegantly and enjoy the music, food, and comradery that comes from the experience. It’s an evening where people can let loose from their busy days and relax. In its first year 7 charities competed in the event. Year two 6 contestants tried to out raise each other with all proceeds going to the Women’s Center of Greater Danbury.  In year three we have pitted 2016 Top Charity vs. 2017 Beneficiary to see which charity can raise the most money. In the first two years of the Gala Fred Astaire Dance Studio has raised $103,000.
