For those that do not know, I am a professional fundraising auctioneer. I raise money for private schools, companies, nonprofits and other organizations… using the auction method of marketing assets. Believe me – I love what I do. I make a difference for the client I am working for because they have ONE chance to raise money… and they rely on me.
With that being said, occasionally I donate my time to other causes. I’ve emceed races for the Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia, run several Susan G Komen Race for the Cure events and run half-marathons for Team in Training with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Now I am stepping COMPLETELY out of my comfort zone by becoming a dancer in Dancing with the Carolina Stars!
Yep, I said it… a DANCER!
Friends and acquaintances, get up off the floor… I don’t want to hear comments about my dancing technique (or upright seizure, as some of you call it). I have now officially been through eleven practices and been through the dance multiple times. Today, we added more “flair”… (friends, that is your cue for comment).
So… here comes the pitch… I am raising money! Dancing with the Carolina Stars is the Upstate’s premier charity event and ballroom dance competition that pairs leaders from the community with professional dancers in order to create an unforgettable event. This event engages the entirety of the Upstate, from the dancers to the audience in attendance, to those at home who are voting online.
So I need your votes… they are $10 each… you can buy as many votes as you want! When the page switches to the donate page, just add the quantity of votes and Senior Action will add the number of votes to my total. It is that easy! Easier than me becoming a dancer!

Thank you in advance – for the top donors I will send a copy of the dance for your viewing pleasure – or humor… whichever fits!
I want to give a HUGE thank you to Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Greenville for giving me the time to make this a reality and pair me with a professional (Maryna Ferris) that can whip me into shape!
