St. Louis Dancing with the Stars was held at the Ritz Carlton in Clayton. Guests were treated to eight St. Louis community leaders who performed in front of 650 people for a star-studded fundraiser and dance competition. Dancing with the St. Louis Stars is a benefit for Independence Center. The bright stage light illuminated the ballroom as the star couples danced with their hearts and soles to build awareness for mental illness and collectively raised more than $836,000! Jim Brennan and Lucy Fitzgerald were crowned Dance Champions and Dancing MVPs after raising over $257,000 in votes and $200,007 overall!
