The Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA), along with the Exchange Club of Beaufort and USCB Center for the Arts, has announced the third annual Dancing With Our Stars fundraising event presented by Vaden of Beaufort.

The kickoff dinner was held Nov. 30 to introduce the teams. Heroes of the community — our “stars” — are paired with a dance instructor who will choreograph their performance at the main event on March 9. The event will be at 7:30 p.m. at USCB Center for the Arts. 

Tickets went on sale at 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 15 through the USCB Center for the Arts web site at www.uscbcenterforthearts.com. Tickets for the Friday night dress rehearsal also are on sale. Judging and announcement of the winners will be on March 9.

Proceeds from the event will be used to benefit the Open Arms Children’s Home, the only local shelter for abused and neglected children, and other CAPA programming.
