Dancing for a CAUSE with The Woodlands Stars is a charity event benefiting the annual YMCA Giving Campaign. Dollars raised for the Annual Campaign, underwrite YMCA programs like child care, swim lessons, day camp, active older adults, sports, teen leadership and more. All of these Y services provide families in SouthMontgomeryCounty with hope for a positive future and equip children with skills and core values. One hundred percent of the money raised for SouthMontgomeryCountyYMCA stays within the local community.


“No matter the size of the gift, every dollar donated to the Annual Campaign is an investment in the children in our community,” said Mark Cochran, Regional Development Director. “Thousands of stories and memories are created each day at a Y.  Children experience their first swim lesson, sports activity or special camp moment at the YMCA. Families journey together through some of the most rewarding chapters of their lives while at the Y. We strive hard to turn no one away due to inability to pay. Everyone is welcome at the YMCA. We are very excited about the 2nd Annual YMCA Dancing with The Woodlands Stars and the opportunities it will provide us to further our mission in the community.”


Sponsors for the event include Talisman Energy, Affinity Ballroom, MUNDAY Chevrolet, Kroger, The Woodlands Waterway Marriott, RE/MAX The Woodlands & Spring, The Woodlands Development Co., The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center, St. Luke’s The Woodlands Hospital, Woodforest National Bank and Waste Connections.
