About the Event
Started in 2007 and modeled after the hit reality show, “Dancing with the Stars”, Stars Dancing for HEALS features eight Stars from the community dancing with local ballroom instructors to raise funds for HEALS. The gala event will be held on November 3rd at 5 0′clock in the evening at Monaco Pictures in Bridge Street Towne Center for ticket holders and sponsors.
Each Star will collect donations (votes) and corporate sponsorships for HEALS to reach their fundraising goal of $15,000. Every dollar donated to HEALS counts as one vote. The Star who raises the most money (votes) for HEALS wins the ‘Top Champion for Children’ award. Our audience at Monaco Pictures will select one Star as the ‘Crowd Favorite’ on the night of the event. You have the opportunity to vote online now for your favorite!
ANYONE, ANYWHERE can vote for the Stars by donating to HEALS in any amount. Every dollar donated in the Star’s name counts as a vote. There are two ways to contribute:
- Check out the 2014 Stars, then vote for them online! Choose “All Stars” if you cannot decide on a Star!
- Mail a donation to HEALS in your favorite Star’s name before the event. (1100 Meridian St. Huntsville, AL 35801)
Who are our Stars?
Since 2007, HEALS has had the opportunity to work with many individuals from different areas of the community. From doctors, dentists, television news anchors, small business owners and civic volunteers, to school principals, our Stars have come from all walks of life to support HEALS!

Who are the professional dancers?
This year, professional dance instruction is provided by select instructors from Southern Elegance Dance Studio & Madison Ballroom Dance Studio.
Each star is paired with a local, professional dance instructor at the studios to prepare one dance for the night of the event. They receive approximately 20 hours in lessons to prepare for the dance.
HEALS appreciates the willingness of the Stars and Studios to step into the spotlight to benefit the children we serve at our school-based health care clinics. Without their support and enthusiasm, this event would not be possible. Learn more about the Dance Studios.
