On Saturday, April 23, 2022, Denver’s finest news anchors teamed up with Arthur Murray professionals to showcase their moves in a spirited ballroom dance competition, DANCING WITH THE ANCHORS. The theme this year – Dance-Party in the USA! Our fabulous news anchors put in ten weeks of rigorous training to put on the show of the season where dances like the Las Vegas Hustle, New York Fox Trot, and Miami Salsa were featured.
Our wonderful news anchors included: CBS4’s Dave Aguilera and Michelle Griego, Fox31’s Ashley Michels and Chris Parente-Rios, 9News’ Danielle Grant and Steve Staeger, and Denver7’s Lisa Hidalgo. We can’t thank them enough for the time and effort they put in to raise money for Anchor Center for Blind Children. Not only did they spend time training, but they found ways to tell our story through news segments, special fundraising events and social media posts. It all made a difference, and we were able to raise a record-setting $116,000!
As in years past, each news anchor had their own fundraising page and the news anchor with the most votes/donations by the end of the night was our winner. Danielle Grant not only showed off her dance moves with the New Orleans Swing, but raised a personal best this year and was our winner for the night!
Our parent speakers for the evening, Leeah & Jeremy Broms, reminded all of us why we were there and shared their son, Atlas’ journey. We are so incredibly thankful to them!
Our special thanks goes to all of our supporters who voted, attended or shared information about the event. You, along with our amazing sponsors, made this event an overwhelming success and we can’t thank you enough.
