“Married to Medicine” star Dr. Jacqueline Walters, known as Dr. Jackie, will be among the cast of the eighth annual “ Dancing Stars of Atlanta .”
The annual dancing contest is fashioned after the popular show, “Dancing with the Stars.” The contest raises funds for the Alzheimer’s Association, Georgia Chapter; something that is dear to Dr. Jackie’s heart. In like manner of the show, it pairs together local Atlantans, some perhaps stars in their professions though not necessarily household names, with professional dancers to raise money through votes during a one-night dance competition.
Every vote costs $1.
The upcoming cast includes Ken Covers, a Realtor at Engel & Völkers Intown; Suzanne Dansby , a community volunteer; Chris Foster, owner and executive director of A Hand To Hold; Tara Byrne Garner, a developed at Big Canoe Co.; Sandra Hutto, a retired benefits specialists; Teri Schneider, an Peachtree Ridge High School educator and assistant coach for the cheer team; Dino Thompson-Sarmiento, CEO of Blue Flame Resources and Spotted Blue Agency; Dr. Nino Valishvili, a certified clinical research coordinator at NeuroStudies.net; and Dr. Farzana Virani, an optometrist at Mt. Vernon Eye Care.
It will be held at 6 p.m. May 6 at the Cobb Galleria Centre .
