Back To Front Page


The Duneland Family YMCA will host the sixth annual Dancing Like the Stars on Saturday, November 4, in the Stardust Event Center at the Blue Chip Casino. Enjoy a memorable evening as local celebrities and their professional dancing partners face off to raise funds which will support the Y mission and provide programming and membership subsidy. The doors will open at 5 p.m. for a social hour followed by dinner and the amazing performances of our eight specially chosen 2017 Stars.

“We are thrilled to return to Blue Chip this year,” said event chair Meg McCarel. “This year’s theme is “The Spies Who Love the Y”, an evening of spy-themed music and entertainment. We hope guests will add fun and enjoyment to the evening by dressing the part of their favorite spy character and do some super sleuthing to support the all-star (spy) lineup of contestants.”

The Stardust Event Center features everything necessary to comfortably accommodate guests. Special room rates at the Blue Chip Hotel will be available for Dancing Like The Stars guests if reservations are made by October 14.

The impressive 2017 Stars lineup includes Y Personal Trainer Carensa Bradford; Heather Compton, Chesterton Fire Dept.; Fernando Romo, El Cantarito Mexican Cuisine; JD Williamson, Windstream Communications; Heather Ennis, Northwest Indiana Forum; Suzanne Radzik, Duneland YMCA; Mark Chamberlain, Lakeside Wealth Mgmt.; and Kevin Zeck, Duneland School Corp.

These Duneland celebrities are asking for community support as they dance to help ensure a brighter future for those in our community in need of assistance. They'll all be dancing to win support for the Y, and they’re all in it to win it!

There are a variety of ways to support the stars and strengthen the mission of the Y: purchase a ticket or table to attend the event in support of a particular star; provide a sponsorship or Silent Auction item; or support a star by purchasing “votes” for them.
