Dance. Raise. Inspire.
Every great dancer needs a great partner. Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation found that in Swinging with the Stars. Based on TV’s Dancing with the Stars, the event pairs local celebrities with professional dance instructors. with They train together and then showcase their choreographed routines at the event.
Dancers compete for two trophies – Crowd Favourite, decided by fans, and Judges Choice, decided by a celebrity panel. The local version is also a charity event – while rehearsing and competing, celebrities raise money. Funds are also raised through ticket and beverage sales, as well as people voting online and in-person at the event.
Swinging with the Stars organizers and the Foundation raised $152,000 for Saskatoon City Hospital’s Rehab Center in 2017 and $153,000 for the Breast Health Centre in 2018.
