Dancing with the Hendricks County Stars was alight with Black & White on May 20 at the Hendricks County Fairgrounds Expo Hall as dancers competed for an audience of 530, the largest ever. The evening included a silent auction with a great variety, a dinner catered by The Coachman, and a dessert dash of beautiful and delicious offerings.

Dancers were Jenna Berry, Danville Regional Rehab (ASC Community); Monet Bowling, Hendricks Regional Health; Joe Brooks of Sheltering Wings; Kristy Cheek, Bogan Eye Care; Brett Clark, Hendricks County Sheriff, retired; McKenzie Crose, McKenzie Crose Insurance Agency; Dianne Frewer, A Fitting Creation; Joe Hefenberger, IH Health West; Angela Jennings, The Edge Salon; Jeremy Miers, Brownsburg Meadows (ASC Community); and Kevin Miller, North Salem State Bank.

Beginning in January, dancers took lessons at Arthur Murray Dance Center, Avon in preparation for the performances.

“This event allows us to go ahead with the upgrades to the storage house, and to pay for things like memberships to museum organizations that help us to preserve what we have and share with others, in person and on the internet,” said museum president, Pat Baldwin.

Next year’s “Dancing with the Hendricks County Stars” is planned for May 4, 2024.
