Thanks to you the attendees, our dancing stars, their pro partners from the Dancing Feeling, our volunteers and all of our corporate sponsors and supporters the 11th annual Dancing with the Stars of Mentoring was a resounding success. The more than $91,000 raised is crucial in allowing Mentor Rhode Island to continue its mission of ensuring youth have access to the motivational and supportive relationships they need to grow into confident, successful adults.
The coveted People’s Choice Award was taken home by Textron’s Jayne Donegan and her partner Josh Morgenstein who raised nearly $13,000 in votes. Combined our stars raised nearly $36,000 in votes.
The Judges’ Choice Award went to Bekah Berger of Hot 106 and her professional partner Anthony Scalzi.
