“The true stars of the event are the dancers who work diligently to raise money for these worthy causes,” said Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey.

Each celebrity dancer was matched up with a professional dancer as they compete in a ballroom dance – and for bragging rights as the best dancer in Brevard.
