Dancing with the Valley Stars kicks off fundraising

Posted: Updated:
The 4th annual Dancing with the Valley Stars kicked off Thursday night.

17 new dancers will work over the next several months to raise money for the Turning Point Women's Shelter, which is facing thousands of dollars in cuts to annual grants.

Jamie Starkey is the director of Turning Point.

She reminded the group Thursday night what the goal of the fundraiser is.

“The money that's going to be raised through Dancing with the Valley Stars is going to support us, it's going to buy food, it's going to buy clothes, it's going to make women safe.”

This year organizers are hoping to raise $100,000 with the event.
