Over $45k Raised During 10th Annual "Dancing With the Stars-Dothan Style!"

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) Tonight some local celebrities put on their dancing shoes to raise money for charity.

Dancing With the Stars—Dothan Style, kicked off its 10th annual competition.

Casey Cooper and Wayne Adkinson were this year's winners. They also took home Judges Choice and won the Pre-Event Fundraising Award.

Six couples competed for 4 different awards.

All the proceeds raised directly benefit the Dothan-Houston County Substance Abuse Partnership—which aims at keeping children and teens in the area drug-free.

“It is so important to us to keep our doors open. Without this event we would not be here today," DHCSAP Tobacco Prevention Manager Judy Guiler said, "We are so proud the community does come out and support us, which really makes us so proud.”

The event raised a total of $49,000 this year.
