Berkley Co. Dancing with the Community Stars Fundraiser

Friday night, I had the privilege of being the emcee at the Berkeley County Dancing with the Community Stars Fundraiser - what a great night! I have always been jealous of those MAO contestants who come from Berkeley County, as they seem to have such great directors and financial help in their local scholarships, and I saw for myself what makes them such a huge success! The local board there had organized a fundraiser similar to Dancing with the Stars, and it was so much fun! We had seven pairs of contestants, including two of our own Miss America girls, Amber Miller and her father (who got roped into the dancing the night before when her partner got sick - kudos to him, for sure - they were so cute together!) as well as Maggie Power and her boyfriend who did an awesome job with "Fresh Prince of Belair." All the contestants were absolutely wonderful, and Michael T. Meyers (Magician) and Jennifer Barcinas-Miller, who did the cutest "magic" dance that the audience fell in love with.

Kyle and I got out there at the end and got our groove on! Cool to get to see my other Miss America sisters Ashley Breedon and Melissa Goodwin also - all you future Miss WV girls, get ready - June will be here before you know it!

My good friend from high school, Sherry Skeen Shour, drove down to spend the weekend from Maryland where she is stationed with the Air Force. It was so good to get to hang out with her a bit before she heads off to an assignment in Korea this spring.
