Ridgefield — After a four-year break, the Dancing With the Local Stars fundraiser returned on March 24.
The event, held at Windy Hills Winery, was hosted by the Rotary Club of Three Creeks, and raised more than $13,000 for Rotary youth programs and community service projects. Scot Brantley, project manager for Clark County Public Works, was named grand champion of the event, and Battle Ground city manager Jeff Swanson earned the trophy for best dance.
The other stars at the event were Clark County Councilor John Blom, Washington State University Vancouver professor Dene Grigar, Legacy Salmon Creek public and community relations consultant Kelly Love and Sweet Spot Skirts owner Stephanie Lynn.
First Dance, owned by Vancouver’s Ralph Stevens, produced the event and provided dance instructors Aaron Siebol, Brett Graham, Galaxy Slight, Kristina Hendrickson and Susan Vandervlugt.
