2nd Annual Dancing Stars of Greenwich

Clemens Lengenfelder and Rita Lurito

With a little cha cha, rumba, foxtrot and more, the second annual Dancing Stars of Greenwich raised more than $110,000 for Abilis, the Fairfield County-based non-profit organization that provides services and supports for more than 700 individuals with special needs and their families. The star-studded event, presented in partnership with the Fred Astaire Dance Studios of Greenwich, was hosted by famed choreographer and dancer Billy Blanks Jr., who was master of ceremonies. Celebrity judges included award-winning actor Brendan Fraser, television personality and presenter Lara Spencer, and season 15 Dancing with the Stars All-Star champion Tony Dovolani. “Abilis is so thankful for our community partnership with The Fred Astaire Dance Studios of Greenwich,” said Amy Montimurro, CEO and president of Abilis. “The Dancing Stars of Greenwich event helps support the gap in funding and new initiatives, providing opportunities and supports for individuals with special needs and their families.”
