Mayor’s International Dinner Set for November
Fort Worth Sister Cities International will stage its annual fundraising event, the Mayor’s International Dinner November 17th at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel hosted by Fort Worth’s new mayor. Dancing with the Sister Cities Stars
is going to be another spectacular show of local celebrity couples strutting their stuff as they vie for the audience’s votes for Best Dancers.
The party starts at 6:30 pm with a reception hosted by Fort Worth’s new Mayor followed by international fare from Italy, Japan and China. Local DJ Bob Bonilla and Eso Es Sounds will entertain the crowd and provide some lively music for the contestants. “Dancing with the Stars has nothing on Fort Worth. Some of last year’s contestants would have given them a run for their money,” said Dinner Chair and CEO of Worthington National Bank, Greg Morse.
Celebrity couples are now being handpicked and will be announced soon. Best Dancers are selected by votes which can be purchased for $1.00 each prior to and at the event. The winning couple will receive a large mirrored ball trophy along with airfare for two aboard American Airlines to any of its U.S., Canadian or Mexican destinations.
This event was a sell out last year. “We had no idea what to expect from our dancers and they exceeded all expectations,” said Yvonne Rubenstein, producer of the show. “To see county commissioners, city council representatives, the police chief along with local business and community leaders doing a tango or jitterbug in full costume was just incredible” said Rubenstein.
All this is being done to support the youth programs and exchanges of Fort Worth Sister Cities. Youth exchanges open the door to the future for students giving them the opportunity to learn from other cultures and be prepared for a global marketplace.
Sponsorships are available now from $25,000 to $500 or individual tickets to the party are $150 each.
