Still tickets left for Mentor Rhode Island’s biggest annual fundraiser, Dancing with the Stars of Mentoring, returns for its 12th installment on Thursday, April 26, 2018 from 5:30pm-9:30pm at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet.
It once again, features local “celebrity dancing stars” and their professional partners from the Dancing Feeling studio in a ballroom dance competition. Add in dinner, open dancing, a silent auction, and our surprise wine grab-bag and you have something for everyone.
The 26th annual Cajun and Zydeco Mardi Gras Ball arrives in Cranston Saturday with great food, wide open dancing, and of course, the best music. Bands include favorites Beausoleil avec Michael Doucet, Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas, and the Knickerbocker All Stars, who will be playing a special set dedicated to Fats Domino. The event is run by Chuck Wentworth, producer of the annual Rhythm and Roots Festival. Details here.
