Garrett wins first place at ‘Dance Like the Stars’ fundraiser
Tracy Garrett of New Albany was awarded first place in the 2012 “Dance Like the Stars” event, held Saturday at the BancorpSouth Arena Tupelo.
The event, a yearly fundraiser for the Boys & Girls of Mississippi, raised over $175,000 for the youth development organization – the largest ever in its seven-year history.
“We couldn’t be happier with the way this event has evolved over the past three years,” said Evie Boyd, director of marketing & special events. “We can’t thank the celebrities and sponsors enough for all that they do to make this event so successful. $175,000 – my mind is still processing this milestone! ”
Garrett was chosen first place in the celebrity judges’ category. Second place in the judges’ choice category went to Paul Tucker of Tupelo and Rob Baird of Houston came in third.
