Participants danced their way to more than $8,500 in donations for Relay for Life on Saturday at Park Theater.Dancing With Our Stars featured 11 acts performing a wide range of dance and musical routines.“It was an overall fun-packed night,” said organizer Elaine Lawson. “We raised a lot of money and had a great time in the process. It’s not too early for contestants to start practicing for next year.”Dancing With Our Stars has established the first Saturday in November as its regular date and Lawson said it’s full speed ahead for an eighth installment of the event in 2018.“It takes a lot of practice and time commitment for these teams, not to mention a lot of courage to get up on stage,” said Lawson.
