TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Dancing with the Terre Haute Stars took place at Hulman Center, Friday evening.

It benefits Chances and Services for Youth and it’s their 17th year hosting the fundraiser event. Our very own Jen Thompson, is one of the stars and performed the salsa. Julie Henricks was also the emcee.

Brandon Halleck with Chances and Services for Youth said this event is all about the community.

“Terre Haute is such a giving community. It really is a wonderful place to live, to work, and to have so many resources at our disposal. It truly is just shows what a community can do, getting together to raise money for a great organization like CASEY,” Halleck said.

This year $254,00 was raised and in 17 years, this event has raised close to $3 million.
