Knights of Columbus kickoff ballroom extravaganza

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The 7th Annual Chatham Orthopedics Associates Ballroom Extravaganza kicked off at the Knights of Columbus Thursday.

Twelve dance teams were announced and they will compete to raise money for the charity of their choice on August 2nd.

One of the charities that will benefit from the extravaganza explains why things like this make a difference in the lives of the people they serve.

"We are going to be operating on a third less funding in the coming fiscal year. We are just trying to think of alternative ways to raise funds and events like this. The ballroom extravaganza will go a long way toward feeding seniors in our community," said Karen Daiss, Director of Corporate Advancement for Senior Citizens Inc.

WTOC's Lynda Figueredo will be dancing in the ballroom extravaganza to raise money for Senior Citizen Inc.'s Meals on Wheels program.
