Dance academy raises money for Red Cross, DWTLS


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – To raise money for the Red Cross Scenic Bluffs Chapter, Amanda's Academy of Dance collected donations outside of the La Crosse Center Monday.

All money raised will go toward the dance academy's four entries in Dancing with the La Crosse Stars.

Last year the event raised more than $123,500.

It's the largest annual fundraiser for the local Red Cross.

"There's been a lot of things recently in the community that people just, they need funds, they need help now. So we're really just, we're trying to help out our community and raise awareness for a great cause," said Amanda Verthein, owner/director of Amanda's Academy of Dance.

Dancing with the La Crosse Stars is Saturday, Nov. 30 at the La Crosse Center.
