The star dancers will be competing for coveted awards including:  Best Male and Female Performances, People’s Choice, and Best Friend to ElderHouse for the greatest fundraising effort. Dancers will be paired with Fred Astaire Professional Dancers Dusan Kostic, Manuel Trillo and Sanja Pavlovic.

“In addition to being a really fun event, this benefit is one of the region’s largest philanthropic nights of the season. As our only fundraiser, the evening raises critical support for our award-winning program of adult care, socialization and recreational activities for seniors,” said Denise Cesareo, ElderHouse Executive Director.

All proceeds will support the care and services ElderHouse provides to older adults and their family caregivers. ElderHouse is a not-for-profit adult day center serving Norwalk, Darien, New Canaan, Stamford, Wilton, Weston and Westport.
