With ABC2 News Anchor Jamie Costello returning as emcee, the evening will feature a cocktail reception, full-course gourmet dinner, dancing to live music by Highway Star and a showcase of local ballroom and Latin talent.

The event’s highlight, the “Dancing Stars” competition, will take place among individuals and couples chosen for their leadership in the community and their support of the Alzheimer’s Association. Many of them also have personal connections to Alzheimer’s disease.
