HOLMEN, Wis. (WKBT) – Holmen students put on their dancing shoes for a great cause.
On Monday night, the high school’s athletes and a marketing class put on the 10th annual Dancing with the Sports Stars.
One athlete pairs up with a member of the dance team to perform.
Eight dancing duos took the stage.
This show was a fundraiser for the Lee family. The family lost a daughter, Laslie Lee, to lymphoma in September. Laslie was in 6th grade.
Dalton Thienes, a student in the sports and entertainment marketing class, said he was glad to help.
“It’s just to help support a family and good to bring the community together for a cause,” said Thienes.
The show wasn’t the only fundraiser.
Students also ran a bake sale, a silent auction and a photo booth.
Altogether, the event raised $23,828 for the Lee family.
