VERO BEACH — Dancing with Vero’s Stars is a mere three months away, and while dancers are rehearsing, picking out costumes and raising funds for the IRC Healthy Start Coalition, the planning committee is busy preparing all of the aspects for this exciting, entertaining evening.

Dancing with Vero’s Stars will take place on March 10, 2012 at The Waxlax Center at Saint Edward’s School in Vero Beach, located at Saint Edward’s Upper School, 1895 Saint Edward’s Drive, South A1A.

Thanks to talented graphic artist Amanda Robinson, owner of Squared Studios in Vero Beach, the event website in now operative. A visitor to can vote for their favorite star dancer, donate to the benefiting organization and purchase tickets to the event itself.

Additionally, items in a silent auction, which will be held during the evening’s pre-event cocktail hour and show’s intermission, will soon be listed on the website and bids will be accepted. All payments can easily be made online and, by checking a box, your credit card information will be retained for future bidding, voting and ticket purchases.

This is how it works. Once you are on the home page, click the “Buy Tickets” tab. Fill out the form and credit your favorite star dancer by hitting the drop down list next to the word “Votes.”

Or, from the homepage you can hit the “Star Dancer” tab on the top and it will bring you to the Star Dancer page. Click on your favorite star dancer photo and on the bottom of that page you may click a tab to either “Donate” or “Buy Tickets.” Your favorite star dancer will be credited with that transaction.

During the evening’s pre-event cocktail hour and show’s intermission, there will be two additional fundraising opportunities: you can purchase roses for your favorite star dancer at $10 each or purchase champagne for $25 a glass with the hope to win a diamond bracelet valued more than $1,000, courtesy of John Michael Matthews Fine Jewelry.

You can make either or both of these purchases online.

The IRC Healthy Start Coalition develops, evaluates and funds a full spectrum of services to support pregnant women’s health, baby’s health and families parenting young children.
