Mark your calendar for October 5, 2013, when a very special event is going to rock the La Jolla Torrey Pines Hilton off its tent pegs. The La Jolla Town Council is set to host ‘Dancing with the Stars’, a fundraising bonanza modeled on the popular television show. Attendees will be treated to performances by a mix of local celebs, like Brandi Williams from ‘Good Morning San Diego’ and San Diego Better Business Bureau President, Sheryl Reichert. The star power at this event comes in the form of “So You Think You Can Dance” judge, Mary Murphy, who will play host alongside emcee and guest-judge, Jonathan Roberts, from “Dancing with the Stars”.
It’s set to be a night of fun competition, with some exciting extras like a silent auction and electric guest performances. All the proceeds will go towards local beautification and service projects in La Jolla, in addition to supporting ‘Warriors and Quiet Waters’, a nonprofit organization that benefits critically wounded service workers.
Tickets are on sale now, ranging from $175 – $350 per person, or from $4,500 – $10,000 per table. For all inquiries, please visit ljdancingwiththestars.com.
