In April, the owner of the company I work for invited me to a charity event put on by NC CEED called Dancing With the Fayetteville Stars. She had somehow found herself being one of the dancers for the night and as a result our company eagerly filled three tables to support her and her incredibly adventurous spirit, all for a great cause.

I definitely send the obligatory photos to my ladies before events so that they can help me pick an outfit. These were the top three contenders.
Hair and face did.

[They] are dedicated to assisting individuals and families gain skills to help themselves.”
We were able to raise over one hundred thousand dollars at DWTFS.
Some of the dancers were really phenomenal and had clearly been working on perfecting their art form for a long time. I have always been a lover of dance and can really appreciate how much time and hard work it takes to be a dancer.
Personally, I really enjoyed the dancers who clearly didn’t know much about what they were doing, but they were going all out for a good cause.
This was a father-daughter couple and they were ridiculously good and adorable.
Apart from the dancing, quirky judges, food, and wine, I got to sit with some wonderful people who I really love and admire.
What am amazing night all around. It was a true delve into the culture of Fayetteville, a really wonderful night with coworkers, and a successful and well done event by NC CEED. My girl Trisha won in my heart, hands down.
Until next time,
