Dancing Like the Stars 2018

Watch some of your favorite local celebrities compete for the title in the always popular, Dancing Like the Stars.

The Dancing Like the Stars competition is sponsored by National Inclusion Project and Fred Astaire Dance Studios of Cary. National Inclusion Project was created to bridge the gap that exists between young people with disabilities and the world around them. They partner with communities and inclusive programs creating awareness about the possibilities that inclusion can bring. Don’t miss this fun event that supports a great cause!

Fido Fashion Show

Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue, Inc. is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of golden retrievers in need.  The organization advocates responsible pet ownership, community education and protection of all dogs. While their focus is primarily on the eastern half of NC, they accept any golden retriever into their program – regardless of age or medical condition.  They help families who can no longer care for their goldens by offering an opportunity to surrender their dogs – knowing that a final outcome is happy and includes a new, loving home.  They also partner with shelters to save strays and assure goldens are not euthanized because no one wants them. They are an all volunteer organization and cannot continue their work without foster homes, transporters, and fundraisers. Join them daily on the Fashion and Entertainment Stage at 3pm for the Fido Fashion Show - Retrievers on the Runway.
