On Wednesday, October 23rd, Attorney Craig Laporte got a taste of what it feels like to be on the hit reality TV show, “Dancing with the Stars!”

Spartan Manor in New Port Richey was all a glow for the Junior Service Legaue’s 5th Annual “Dancing with the Local Stars” event to raise $3,500 in scholarship money for high school seniors in the West Pasco area.

Craig and his partner, Taisilia Babiuk, took the stage for a night of excitement as they preformed their dance and placed 3rd in the competition.  Babiuk is a National Ballroom Champion of Moldova and was a World Champion in 2010.  She is currently part of the teaching team at Arthur Murry Palm Harbor.

Other proceeds from the event also benefited local non-profit organizations such as HPH Hospice, RAP House, PACE Center for Girls, Metropolitan Ministries, the Lighthouse for the Visually Impaired & Blind, SPCA and many others. Angie Gardner and Tina Shelton are event Co-Chairs.
