***The Women’s Fund of the Central Minnesota Community Foundation has made the difficult decision to hit the pause button on this year’s Women’s Fund Dancing With Our Stars event, scheduled to be held on June 15th at the College of St. Ben's. We feel it is the best course of action and the most responsible decision we can make for the health and safety of everyone involved in the live dance performance, our committee members, the CMCF staff, guests and our community.

While we are hitting pause on the 2020 event, we intend to bring you an outstanding event in 2021 with the same Community Stars, professional dancers and benefiting charities.We want to take a moment and thank each and every individual who has committed their time, talents, resources, and sponsorship to the Dancing With Our Stars event, particularly the planning committee, dancers, charities, StudioJeff, our generous sponsors and supporters.*****

The Women's Fund of Central Minnesota Community Foundation would like to cordially invite you to attend the fundraising event of the year! This year's event will feature a dance competition between six local celebrities who have been paired with a professional partner to face off for the chance to win up to $15,000 for the non-profit program/organization of their choice that supports women and girls! This is a do-not-miss event!

Enjoy a casual, fun evening with a great "small plates" buffet and a variety of cocktails and beverages before the dancing begins.
