Communities In Schools of High Point, Inc. is excited about its 8th annual “Dancing with the High Point Stars” signature fundraising event scheduled for Saturday, February 24, 2018 at High Point Country Club.  Regular Ticket admission opens at 6:00 and Sponsors’ Hour is 5:00 – 6:00.  Once again this year, the professional dancers from Fred Astaire Dance Studio will partner with community volunteers to entertain all of us.  We were thrilled to have the following community stars to entertain us:  Joyce Allen (J.H. Adams Inn), Heather Bowers Cross (Fidelity Bank), Bonnie Faust (High Point Regional Hospital), Brian Gavigan (Wyatt Early Harris Wheeler LLP), Travis Green (Miss High Point Scholarship Pageant), James Mitchell (Smith Leonard PLLC), Susan Morris (Community Volunteer), Monica Peters (Benefit Plan Services, Inc.), Martha Shafer (Community Volunteer), Alex Stevens (Alex Stevens), and Jonathan Teich (High Point University Athletics).

We exceeded our goal of $60,000 in 2017 and hope to raise more than $65,000 in 2018.  Our goal is to continue providing programs and services to students who attend some of High Point’s schools that have the highest free and/or reduced lunch percentages, a federal indicator of poverty.   Now, more than ever, it is crucial that we help students realize the importance of a high school diploma as the foundation for future endeavors, but we cannot do it without Jane Liebschercommunity support. This fundraising event helps ensure the continuing legacy of student success in our community that began under the leadership of founder, William “Bill” Horney Jr.
