Mark Your Calendars for the Annual Dancing With Our Stars Gala

The Arkansas Chapter of the Children’s Tumor Foundation is gearing up for its largest fundraising event of the year, the annual Dancing With Our Stars gala scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 7, at the Statehouse Convention Center.

Each year, while guests enjoy dinner, cocktails, music and silent auctions, well-known locals are paired up with professional dancers for a chance to take home the title and to raise awareness and funds for the foundation. 

So who is in the spotlight this year? Here’s the 2023 all-star lineup:

  • Burt Hicks
  • Tanya James
  • Nathan “Coach” Kirby
  • Luke O’Gary
  • Gina Radke
  • Cat Sims

Proceeds from the event help fund CTF’s mission to “drive research, expand knowledge and advance care for the neurofibromatosis (NF) community.” This includes aiding patient services, supporting local NF clinics and sponsoring Arkansas teens to attend international NF camps.

Dancing With Our Stars begins at 6 p.m., and both in-person and virtual tickets are available now. For more information, visit the foundation’s website and follow updates on Facebook and Instagram.
