Cheryl Gerstner and Laura Guttridge, co-chairs of the 5th annual Dancing with Vero’s Stars have officially announced three emcees for this year’s event. The event will be held on Saturday evening, May 11 at Riverside Theatre in Vero Beach.  The change of venue and date to Mother’s Day weekend is a positive change for the Healthy Start organization and welcomes Riverside Theatre as their new community partner.  Proceeds from this event will benefit the IRC Healthy Start Coalition and Riverside Theatre’s programs and services.

Gracing the stage as Emcee for the 5th year is Hamp Elliott, Radio Host of 93.7 The Breeze, from 10a.m.-3p.m. Monday through Friday. Elliott has been a veteran broadcaster on the Treasure Coast for over 30 years.

“I am a big fan of the ABC version and love having the opportunity to play the role of Tom Bergeron, the host of the TV show” Elliott exuberantly boasts.  “I will do my best to duplicate his professional performance; but most of all, I am proud to be involved with an event that does so much for the community in supporting the Indian River County Healthy Start Coalition.”

New to this year are the emcees for the Silent Auction portion of the evening. We welcome Dana Daniels and Geoff Moore, co-hosts of The Morning Show on 93.7 The Breeze, 5:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. daily. They will bring their charm, wit and enthusiasm to the pre-show cocktail reception as they let the guests know all about the Silent Auction being held in the adjacent Waxlax Theatre.

According to Daniels and Moore, “Attendees will also enjoy our visiting with them in the audience following all the dance performances and while the tallying of judge’s votes take place. We will get them all geared up for the end of the show…it will be great fun”
