Our Colleague Rocked ‘Dancing for the Arts’ [VIDEO]
Last Saturday night, the Greater Rochester Arts and Cultural Trust held its annual fundraising activity. "Dancing for the Arts - Take IV" marked the fourth year of the "Dancing with the Stars"-themed event and one our our station's very own, General Manager Shannon Knoepke, was one of the celebrity dancers.
And boy did she dance! Her and partner Gary Dahl, from Dahl Dance Center, danced a swing-style number to Christina Aguilera's 'Candyman'. Their costumes were wonderful and the dance number itself was amazing!

Despite the incredible effort, Shannon was not the winner. Bassem Elhassan, M.D. won the 'Overall Champion Award', while Leslie McClellon was the 'Judges Choice Award' winner. Around here, we think she should have been! What do you think?
Overall, Saturday night's sold-out event raised more than $100,000. That money will be used by the Greater Rochester Arts and Cultural Trust to give out arts-related grants to organizations throughout the Rochester community.
