Seeds of Learning is honored to announce the stars of the 2023 Dancing with the Pagosa Stars. These stars were selected for their community leadership, personality and a belief in Seed’s education.
Our talented stars are: Tim Wightman, Sherry Phillips, Gustavo Palma, Jessica Low, Josh Butcher and Becky Dietemeyer.
Dancing with the Pagosa Stars will be held on Aug. 19 at the Ross Aragon Community Center.
These incredibly generous people have agreed to be paired with a professional dancer, learn a dance routine choreographed just for them and perform for your votes on what will be the sixth anniversary of this magical event.
Today you can go to the Seed’s website at dwtps.org to see bios of these competitive stars and vote for your favorites. Each $1 vote moves a star closer to winning the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy and bragging rights as the winner for the next year. But, more importantly, all the proceeds go to sustaining Seeds of Learning, where preschoolers are expertly prepared for school and for life.
Over the next few weeks, we will tell you more about these special people and why they have agreed to support Seeds. Each has a unique story, and everyone associated with Seeds feels very lucky to have their amazing support. Their commitment to raise critically needed funds to educate vulnerable at-risk preschool children is truly inspiring. When you see these folks around town, be sure to let them know how special they are, and don’t forget to vote at vote.dwtps.org.
All tickets include voting for your favorite star, a buffet dinner served by our fine dining restaurant that will feature fall-off-the-bone slow-cooked short ribs, open dancing during voting and a fabulous show that is sure to entertain. Ticket sales will open to the public at 9 a.m. on July 13. Watch our website and the Dancing with the Pagosa Stars Facebook page at facebook.com/Dancingstarspagosa/ for specific instructions on ticket purchase.
But why wait to support your favorite star(s) when you can start voting online today at vote.dwtps.org? Every dollar equals one vote, and you can vote for multiple stars and as many times as you’d like.
Seeds of Learning is a nonprofit standalone preschool serving approximately 58 preschoolers year-round, ages 2.5 to 5 years old. Your support allows Seeds to continue to offer a discounted tuition for 100 percent of the children who attend. Investing in our youngest children now will create lasting change for their future.
