  • Take the Lead 2018

    On November 8th, join your friends at TAKE THE LEAD 2018 for this lively and fun, dancing-with-the-stars community fundraiser! Money raised will benefit the thousands of children in need who are served by the non-profits Take the Lead NC and Big Brothers Big Sisters Services, Inc. Several local “Celebrities,” paired with area “Pros,” will step out of their comfort zones and onto the floor at the Benton Convention Center, in a family-friendly evening of razzle-dazzle song and dance.
