Emmaus’ Margot Regan appeared on WHAV’s “Win for Breakfast” this week to preview one of the community housing organization’s major fundraising events, the sixth annual “Stepping Out with the Valley Stars,” coming up in April.

Regan explained seven local celebrities appear with professional dancers during the competition.

“They do different style of dancing. There up there for a couple of minutes at a time and we have judges and the audience votes…It’s just a real fun event.”

Participants include business people, community activists, elected officials and others. They are Yariel Alvarez, Merrimack Valley Credit Union’s North Andover branch manager; Jonathan Dowst, Pentucket Bank’s executive vice president and chief credit officer; Jeff Grassie, local artist, Haverhill Farmers Market Manager, and Team Haverhill member; Trisch Grimes, Holy Family Hospital physical therapist; Paul Magliocchetti, attorney and Haverhill School Committee member; Rachel Monroe, who won the opportunity to dance at last year’s gala; and Lela Lischke Wright, sales associate at William Raveis Real Estate.

The event takes place Saturday, April 4, at Blue Ocean Music Hall in Salisbury. Doors open at 6 p.m. Besides the dance competition, there will also be silent and live auctions.

Tickets are $125 and available here. Admission includes a gluten-free dinner of grilled shrimp skewers with tournedos of beef.  Those who require a vegetarian meal or have special dietary restrictions, are asked to call Regan at 978-241-3425 or email [email protected] by March 20.
