Volunteer and Information Quinte is celebrating a big anniversary of their largest fundraiser annually.
Dancing with the Stars Quinte is celebrating 10 years. From humble beginnings of a few hundred gathered in a hotel ballroom, to the Yardmen Arena, to Wellington’s Essroc Arena, the event continues to grow.
Lisa Sinclair is one of the dancing instructors helping VIQ. She says for the 10th year, the event takes on a more competitive flavour.
The money raised will go to support Volunteer and Information Quinte
It goes Friday night at the Essroc Arena in Wellington
