Our first Dancing With West Texas Stars event was a great success. Over 500 people gathered to witness our community "Stars" and their professional partners perform everything from a tango to disco. 


The overall winner was the "Star" who raised the most money for The Crisis Center.

That honor went to Robert E. White, a local attorney.



The other winners are:

Best Female Dancer - Lisa Sutton-Housman with partner Enrique Romero (West Texas Salseros)




 Best Male Dancer & Most Entertaining- Joe James with partner Janet Ansley (Elegance Ballroom) and



Best Costume - Javier Morales with partner Tammie Locklar (Tammie Locklar Dance Studio)



A HUGE thank you to Elegance Ballroom, West Texas Salseros, Tammie Locklar Dance Studio, and Cindy Iglesias-Sama with the Odessa Family YMCA for volunteering their time to train our "Stars" and our local bakers that donated cakes for the dessert auction.
