About Swinging With The Stars

Local celebrities and their professional dance partners competed to take home the coveted Mirror Ball, People’s Choice Trophy and the Judges’ Award.      Your vote through dollars helped decide who won!

Each dollar you donated to Sparrow Clubs was considered a vote for your favorite dancing couple! People voted in advance to help their favorite couple be the front runner for the People's Choice Award and the coveted Mirror Ball trophy, then attended the event to vote again to make sure their favorite couple won! In addition to our featured couples, we had special entertainment and exhibition dances from area professional troupes!

All funds raised benefit Central Oregon Sparrow Clubs! Our goal for Swinging With The Stars was to raise over $85,000 to continue our mission of empowering kids to help kids in medical need.
