The 14th annual "Dancing with Our Stars" fundraiser was held at the Agua Caliente Casino in Rancho Mirage on Sunday.
The event allows amateur couples to raise funds for a number of chairities here in the valley competing in different ballroom dances.
The organization, "Dancing with Our Stars" tells News Channel 3 they have raised close to half a million for several charities.
This year six couples are competing for the trophy and to see who can raise the most money for their charity.
“Well it’s multi-charity event so it brings several of charities together which we love the idea of that and aside from that there’s been alot of dancers that have been helped with the charities so its been a combination of the both of them helping each other," said Lynne Bunch, Founder of Dancing with Our Stars.
News Channel 3's Patrick Evans was one of the contestants in Sunday's event.
