WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) – Tonight is the night for the 12th Annual ‘Dancing With The Ohio Valley Stars’ where 7News anchor Baylee Martin will be competing, and 7News This Morning anchor Taylor Long will be hosting.
There is still time to get tickets to not only support your favorite Ohio Valley Stars but also support the mission of the Augusta Levy Learning Center.
The Augusta Levy Learning Center offers one-on-one applied behavioral analysis therapy for children with autism, and their biggest fundraiser of the year is quickly approaching.
12 stars throughout the area will be lacing up their dancing shoes on Saturday, November 4, at the Capitol Theater for the 12th annual ‘Dancing With The Ohio Valley Stars.’
”This year we have a huge lineup. We’re really excited that we’ve had so many people from the Valley reach out and want to be a part of helping us continue our mission at Augusta Learning Center. Last year was a record-breaking year for us fundraising wise, so we’re really hoping that this year we’ll do that also.”Jessica Osmianski – Director of Development & Communications, Augusta levy Learning Center
All of the proceeds from the event go directly back into the services that the Augusta Levy Learning Center provides to meet each child’s need with the goal of having them return to their home school district.
Their main source of donations comes from the ‘People’s Choice Award.’
Voting for the ‘People’s Choice Award’ is $1 per vote, and anyone can vote now until the end of the final performance for their favorite couple while simultaneously supporting families of children with autism.
”So many times, especially in our early intervention program, we meet parents who come in and tell us they’ve been told that their child will never be able to communicate with them or talk to them. And through applied behavior analysis, we’re able to help those children learn to communicate and to request and to find their voice, whether it be talking or using a device or using a picture exchange and being able to communicate with their parents. And that is such an amazing thing to be a part of these families’ lives.”Jessica Osmianski – Director of Development & Communications, Augusta levy Learning Center
WTRF is a proud media sponsor of Dancing with the Ohio Valley Stars, where attendees will be able to order drinks, watch their favorite Ohio Valley celebrities vie for the 2023 Mirrorball Trophy, and be part of the greater cause that the Augusta Levy Learning Center works towards every day.
”The valley turns out so big for Augusta Levy for anything that we do. It’s so amazing and humbling to see that they see the value in the work that we do and the importance of having these services in these kids’ lives.”Jessica Osmianski – Director of Development & Communications, Augusta levy Learning Center
