ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WTVY) – The Wiregrass celebrities showed off their dance moves for a good cause on Thursday, October 13. Enterprise State Community College hosted the Dancing for Scholarships event.

Enterprise State Scholarship Foundation President Robbie Thompson said, “All money raised here tonight will go towards scholarships for Enterprise State students, and it’s a great event we’re hosting. for 4 years now.
The goal was to raise funds and bring the community together in a fun way. The theme this year was the 80s. The dancers took out their retro steps for the occasion.
Former winner and now dance scholarship judge John Mitchell is thrilled to be participating in a different way this year. “It’s great not to dance tonight,” Mitchell said, “it’s a lot of work, I know what it is. It was a very anxious night, they put in a lot of hard work.
This year’s winners were Jeffrey Douglas, aka Mr. Mattress, and his professional partner Savannah Seay. Of course, the real winners are the students whose education is funded by the foundation.
Over $76,000 has been raised for the Enterprise State Community College Foundation through Dancing for Scholarships.
