CONGRATS 2019 WINNERS

GRAND CHAMPION ROBBY RIVAS and MARIANELLA TOBAR

HIGHEST FUNDRAISING by MARTHA REDNER and a PERFECT DANCE SCORE by DR. DENI MALAVE-HUERTAS and partner AMY TRAMMELL, ROBBY RIVAS and partner MARIANELLA TOBAR

The most successful Dancing with Vero’s Stars has proven to be the 11th Anniversary, celebrated Saturday evening, May 11 at Riverside Theatre. History was made when a record high total of $495,000  was announced, raised over a period of 8 months by a competitive cast of a  new cast of ten star dancers. Surpassing all expectations anticipated by the Indian River County Healthy Start Coalition, this new record setting total brings the gross income of Dancing with Vero’s Stars, to over $3 million raised for the non-profit since its inception in 2009.

The Mirror Ball trophy went to Robby Rivas and his dance partner Marianella Tobar.  Mr. Rivas shared the Best Dancer award with  Dr. Deni Malave Huertas, while star dancer Martha Redner absolutely shattered the previous record of $76,000, raising $130,000 to claim the Top Fundraising Award.  Star Dancer Kelly Donovan and her partner Robert Scott took First Runner-Up position, while Pam DeChellis and her dance partner Nick Dimitrov took the Second Runner-up spot. The dancer with the highest on-line donations, winning season tickets to Riverside Theatre was Kelly Donovan.  

The 655 seat sold-out Theatre brought people to their feet with multiple standing ovations, while the four-hour evening glowed with tasty food, impeccable décor. Add in unlimited entertainment delivered by ten star dancers and their pro instructors, cleverly-produced star videos, a team of highly trained personality-driven judges and two impeccable emcees who moved the evening along to the sounds of thunderous applause, boisterous hoorays and raucous laughter.
