Dancing With The Stars Pros Help Raise Thousands For Covenant Hospice

This past weekend, Dancing With The Stars pros Tony Dovolani, Karina Smirnoff, Tristan MacManus, Val Chmerkovski, Oksana Dmytrenko , Sasha Farber, and Emma Slater helped to raise over $12,000 dollars for Covenant Hospice at the 5th annual ‘Life’s a Dance’ event in Pensacola, Florida. You can view a few segments of the event and some coverage at ABC3 here and here.

PureDWTS reader Gail sent us some personal coverage as well. Below is Tristan with the ladies of the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Pensacola. Gail tells us Tristan was sunburned, but, he was still in fine dancing form as you can see.

Fan Angela Anderson also attended the event. She’s been posting some awesome video coverage at her You Tube page of some of the dances. For instance, below is Oksana and Val!

However, it was not all work and no play for our pros!! There was some time for relaxing and fun in the Florida sun too. For instance, Emma Slater has been posting some breathtaking photos of she and Sasha enjoying some beach time. Be sure to take a look. They are beautiful and the white sand is so inviting. I am so in the mood to go to Florida again now. Who’s with me?

Special thanks to Gail and Angela for all the fantastic video coverage of this event. xx

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together.

Dancing With The Stars Pros Dance For Hospice In Pensacola, Florida

The pros of Dancing With The Stars are certainly having a busy summer so far. Such is true for Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Tony Dovolani, Val Chmerkovskiy, Dasha Chesnokova and Lacy Schwimmer. This week the three took off for Pensacola, Florida to dance and attend the third annual “Life’s a Dance” benefitting Covenant Hospice which took place at the Pensacola Saenger Theater. According to pnj.com, last year’s event raised $58,000. No doubt this years benefit raised the same amount of money if not more?

What’s more, following the show, VIP ticket holders were invited to an exclusive casting party that took place place in the Saenger’s mezzanine and ballroom, where they ate, drank and mingled with the stars. All three dancers tweeted how much fun they had at the benefit. Below are some videos of Tony and Lacey dancing;

You can view a few more videos of the event HERE including one of Maks joking with the crowd.

Lacey posted this picture of Tony and Maks at her twitter while in Florida of the two funning around.

Special Note: This isn’t the first time our pros have danced for this Benefit. In 2009, Derek Hough and Mark Ballas danced. You can read a cool fan story on them at Pure Derek Hough at this link.

Are our Dancing With The Stars pros the coolest or what?!! :)
