The totals are in, and Dancing with the Ohio Valley Stars has raised $50,000 for the treatment of children with Autism. The Augusta Levy Learning Center estimates 1,000 people bought tickets to the event.
It was held at the Capitol Theatre on Saturday, November 1. WesBanco Manager John Rataiczak and his partner Lindsay Bugaj took home the mirror ball trophy after performing a routine to a Disney medley.
Dancing with the Ohio Valley Stars made its debut four years ago at the Osiris Shrine Temple in front of a crowd of 300 people, and has grown every year since. Last year, the event raised over $45,000 with 700 tickets sold.
The Augusta Levy Learning Center is working on a special all-star event for the fifth year, inviting back past winners and runners-up.
