Two members of the Saint Mary’s faculty and staff will put their skills on the line for charity at Dancing with the Winona Stars on Tuesday, Dec. 31, at Winona State University’s McCown Gymnasium. The New Year’s Eve event will feature seven individual stars, eight groups of stars and The Dweebs.
Terri Lieder, marketing and communication office, is dancing with M.P. and the History Hotties, raising money for the Winona County Historical Society. Dr. Joe Tadie, philosophy department, is dancing for Project FINE. They have been training with professional dance instructors for several months.
A panel of judges will critique each performance. The winner is based on a combination of 50 percent dance score and 50 percent votes raised.
Votes can be cast at any time, for $1 per vote, up to the end of the event. Checks for the votes should be made out directly to the charity.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $40 per person (which includes late night hors d’oeuvres, the show and The Dweebs’ performance.)
Tables, which allow for reserved seating for eight, are $350 per table. Visit Dancing with the Winona Stars for more information.
