Tickets for Joplin Dancing with the Stars are available

JOPLIN, Mo. — Tickets are available for an annual fundraiser that lets the Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce dance its way to completing public art projects.

Dancing with the Joplin Stars will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday at Downstream Casino. The event will raise funds for the chamber's Art in Public Places project.

The event is a dancing competition similar to "Dancing with the Stars," where local celebrities pair up with dance instructors to perform.

This year's dancers are Brian Atnip, with Keller Williams Realty, who will be paired with professional partner Heather Lemons; Alicia Edens, Great Southern Bank, with partner Michael Bowen; Stephanie Norwood, Realty Executives, with partner Ben Whaley; Mike Olmstead, Fox 14-TV, with partner Kaye Lewis; Travis Renfro, Walk Talk Nutrition, with partner Grace Love; and Jessica Schaer, KSNF-TV, with partner Dale Clark.

The dances can also be viewed at www.joplin or on the Globe's social networks, including YouTube, Facebook and a Google Hangout.

Tickets are $50 each and include dinner. They are available at dancing.html. At that website, anyone may also cast People's Choice votes for $2 each.

Details: 417-624-4150.
