Dancing with the Las Vegas Stars

I just recently had someone point out an interesting dance competition that’s going on in Las Vegas. They’re calling it “Dancing with the Las Vegas Stars.” The event is all about raising money for charity. The mayor of Las Vegas, Oscar Goodman is participating along with a number of other Las Vegas celebrities.

Even cooler than the celebrities that will be dancing is the list of celebrity judges that are participating. Looks like it could be a really entertaining night. I just hope that in between the star dances they do some professional dancing as well.

If you’re in Las Vegas, you can Buy Tickets on Ticketmaster. Dancing with the LV Stars will be on Sunday April 19, 2009 at 2 PM at the Palms Casino Resort.

Here’s a list of the stars that are dancing:
Oscar Goodman – Mayor City of Las Vegas
Chet Buchanan – Chet Buchanan and the Morning Zoo
Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini – World Champion Boxer
Chris Phillips – Singer/Headliner Zowie Bowie
Brent Barrett – Actor/Singer

Other stars participating in the event are: Louie Anderson, Robin Leach, Frank Marino, Bryan Scofield, Tina Walsh, Tiffany Comstock.

The proceeds from the event go to the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen (Cancer), The Caring Place, Candlelighters, The leukemia and Lymphoma Society. You can vote for your favorite Las Vegas celebrity and support each of these great organizations at the same time.

Kind of a cool twist on the show we all love so much. I really hope that it does well and raises a lot of money for some really quality organizations.
