Dancing with the Stars in NWA!

The 4th Annual Dancing with the Stars of Northwest Arkansas will be Saturday, March 12, from 6-11 p.m at the John Q. Hammons Center in Rogers.

Well-known members of the Northwest Arkansas community are hitting the dance floor in support of the Children’s Museum of Northwest Arkansas. Taking a cue from the popular television show, dancers will present their moves to a panel of ‘celebrity’ judges.

Six contestants vying for the top prize of Grand Champion include Tony Rogers, senior vice president of marketing, Walmart; Peter Lane, president, Walton Arts Center; Kasie Yokley, co-founder, 3W Magazine; Meza Harris, realtor, Harris-McHaney Realty; Meredith Brunen, executive director of development, Northwest Arkansas Community College; and Lauren Boozman, realtor, Portfolio Luxury Real Estate.

Money raised from the event will help support operational and programming needs as the team continues to progress towards their goal of creating a first-class children’s museum in Northwest Arkansas. The mission of The Children’s Museum of Northwest Arkansas is to engage the imagination of children and their families through interactive exhibits, programs and resources while creating an excitement for lifelong learning and the enrichment of lives.

Sponsors include Walmart, Procter & Gamble, Flintco, Cox Communications, Arkansas Dance Connection and Embassy Suites. For additional information and to purchase tickets, visit the NWA Children’s Museum website at www.nwachildrensmuseum.org/DWTS.
