Dancing With Our Heroes

The 3rd annual Hearts and Heroes Fundraiser gathered 300 plus people at Aria on Friday, February 9th. Talented instructors from Dance Fits U, Fred Astaire, Metropolitan Dance and the Garage Studio danced with local veterans to raise money for HOH. The dancing competition generated over 12,000 votes for the favorite dancing veteran. The couples competed for the "Mirror Ball Trophy" while showing off their performances to the cheering crowd.
