In the beautiful home of Andra & Joe Liemandt on Mt. Bonnell Shores, Center for Child Protection hosted a home filled with supporters at their annual “Night with the Stars.” It’s here that we get our first look at the 11 contestants competing for the mirror ball trophy at this year’s Dancing with the Stars Austin, presented by Lexus of Austin.
Each celebrity dancer will spend the next few months preparing to dance in front of an always sold-out crowd in the grand ballroom at the Hilton in downtown Austin on December 7th. It’s the last big fundraiser of the season, and it’s one not to be missed!
