SEGMENT: Dancing Stars of Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – A version of the hit ABC show "Dancing with the Stars" is coming to Columbus and you can get a front row seat to the dazzling competition - but it isn't just for entertainment.

Blaire Willis stopped by the morning show on Wednesday to tell us where the money for this event will go and she even brought some of the competitors with her.

Check out the video clip above to learn more about the event.

Dancing Stars of Columbus is a benefit for the Georgia chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, and features local "celebrities" being paired with a professional dance partner to compete in a one-night dance competition.

The event will take place on May 1 at 6:30 p.m. at the RiverMill Event Centre. Support your favorite "star" by voting for them or purchasing a ticket to the event, with every dollar counting toward a vote.
