DC’s Dancing Stars!
Last night we also went to a launch party for DC’s Dancing Stars at the Huxley, as local celebs gear up for the upcoming competition. Former ‘Skins wide receiver Gary Clark will be one of this year's many celebrity judges. We snapped him flanked by Parkinson Foundation CEO Jared Cohen and the show’s executive director Susannah Moss.
Guests took over the dance floor to prep for the official celebrity dance competition on October 25th at the Ritz Carlton-Tysons. Here, dancer and America's Miss DC 2012 Sarah Hillware, DC Hot Spots host Wil Lash, LLS 2014 Woman of the Year Evelyn Smallwood, and Fred Astaire Dance Studio owner Maria Coakley David.
DC Shadow Senator Paul Strauss, here with Miss Bolivia Guiselle Lema, joked with us that he brought chips, thinking they wanted him to eat salsa, but then found out he’ll have to learn to salsa.
Of course, it’s all for a good cause, or in this case, causes: Proceeds will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Washington Humane Society, Girls Health Ed, 'Skins Alumni Foundation, T.A.P.S., Hope for Henry, and the Parkinson Foundation. Here, Amoo's Maria Oveysi and realtor Jinous Yazdani are flanked by Best Auto Glass’ Samira Ghaderi and Roya Ghaderi.
