Take a dozen sets of dance partners, a room full of merry makers and people who want to support the American Cancer Society and what do you get?

It all comes together as the 2014 Dancing With Our Stars in Pell City this Friday night, an occasion hosted by a group that loves to dance as well as raise money for the ACS.

The dance couples have been practicing for weeks, and as Pell City Line Dancers member Doris Munkus puts it, this will be an occasion that all who attend can expect a high level of fun and everything that goes with it.

The evening begins at 7 p.m. at Celebrations on U.S. 231 South in Pell City and tickets are $25 for singles or $40 per couple.

This year’s Relay for Life goal for St. Clair County is $120,000 and the Pell City Line Dancers like so many other organizations with Relay teams are working hard to help meet the 2014 goal.

The St. Clair County Relay for Life is changing locations this year, and will be held at Pell City’s Lakeside Park instead of the previous location at Pell City’s Pete Rich Stadium.

Friday’s event includes a menu of a variety of finger foods and snacks and music will be provided by Peter Boyle and his orchestra.

Dancers for the event have been paired with experiences and or professional dancers, Munkus said.

Dancers lined up to offer their talents include Ofes Forman, Teresa Carden, Laura Shier, Retha Goode, Cory O'Neal, Erica Grieve, Janice Spann, Bonnie Jones, Nancy Crow, Paul Leverton, Edwin Prado, Donna McAlister, Dr. Danny Hancock, Larry Blair, Mary Power, Barr Kirby, Stan Batemon, Peter Boyle, David Jones and Blair Goodgame.

Professional dancers lending their talents include John Travis, Dot Burke, Rick Tovar, Ken Miller, Arlie Fortner, Liz Starnes, Jamie Overton, Starr Kendrick, Helen Woods, Ernestine Bowie, Rusty Kesler, Charlotte Kesler, Amanda Jacobs, Brenda McBrayer, Paul McBrayer, Jackie Vandregrift.

“The instructors have choregraphed various dances from gracious, to exotic, to just plain cute routines for our Pell City celebrities,” Munkus said. “Come out and enjoy your valentine's night at Celebrations with Pell City's Dancing with Our Stars, while you sit , dine and watch a great night of dancing along with Peter Boyle and his band.”

Tickets may be purchased at Pell City Coffee Shop, E & S Nails, Metro Bank, or at the Pell City Steak House.
