VERO BEACH -- Ten local "star" dancers, matched with ten local dance instructors, dressed in tinsel and glitter, danced with a lot of confidence as they performed their Tango, Cha-cha, Salsa, Charleston and Lindy Hop on the Riverside Stage during Dancing with Vero's Stars on May 11.

Emceed by broadcasting veteran Hamp Elliot, and judged by the locally talented Lance Sexton, Donna Roberts Mitchell and Adam Schnell, the 600 ticket holders were treated to an evening of unparalleled entertainment presented by local non-profit, Indian River County Healthy Start Coalition. The end result was just under $200,000 for the agency, whose mission is to guarantee all Indian River County women access to prenatal care and all infants' access to services that promote normal growth and development.

The Mirror Ball trophy went to Plastic Surgeon John Sarbak and his instructor Karren Walter. First runner-up was Sheriff Deryl Loar and his instructor Patti Rooney; second runner up was CenterState Banker Chris Bieber and his instructor Stefani Conrado.

Highest fundraiser was John Sarbak with a total of over $36,000 raised. Best dancer was a tie between Ace Hardware Owner John Talmadge and his instructor Amy Trammell and Blondies on Ocean Owner Trish Hickey-Reid and her instructor Tom Isola.

The other dancing couples included Attorney Adam Chrzan with instructor Terry Greene, non-profit volunteer Page Curtis and instructor Barry Trammell, Inside Track Almanac Publisher Kerry Firth and instructor Joe Wynes, Real Estate Broker Michelle Kantzler with instructor Freddy Vega, and former Mayor Mary Beth McDonald and her instructor Robert Scott.
