Raise the Roof is holding its Gala of Stars: Dancing for the Cause fundraising event for which participants are learning choreographed ballroom routines to be performed during the event on Friday, Nov. 13 at the Woodwinds of Branford.

The stars are competing for “votes” (dollars = votes) and their dancing is raising funds for the building of the next Raise the Roof Habitat for Humanity house. The dance couple that receives the most votes will be named the winner and will receive the grand prize 2015 Shoreline Stars trophy. Voting is taking place online and will stay open through the Nov. 13 gala performances.

The stars competing in the event include Eileen and Tom Banisch, Angela Clemmons and Peter O’Donnell, Deb and Russell Heinrich, Dodie Milardo and Will Gambardella, Nancy and Don Rankin, Heidi Voight and Todd Russell, Joy Grabow Weaver and Tom Scarice, and Grace Zhang and Alex Taubes.

The event takes place on Nov. 13 from 6:30 to 11 p.m. at the Woodwinds, 29 Schoolground Road, Branford. Ticket sales are opening soon; visit raisetheroofct.org for updates.
