Each year, community leaders dazzle + delight a crowd of enthusiastic patrons at the Dancing with Our Stars Gala. This year’s virtual evening of friendly competition benefits the Children’s Tumor Foundation and supports the Arkansas chapter’s research and mission: to end and find a cure for neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that disturbs cell growth in the nervous system, causing tumors to form on nerve tissue.
Children Tumor Foundation also provides support for children and families affected by NF. A portion of the proceeds is donated for grants to send Arkansas teens to the International NF Camp.
We’re putting each star in the spotlight and introducing them. Voting and related festivities begin TODAY.

“My dance partner Stephen Stone and I had instant chemistry when we bonded over our shared love for Broadway and the golden era of Hollywood. Needless to say, I’m getting to live out my dreams of channeling one of the stage’s greatest legends for our performance and I couldn’t be more excited!”
