WINTERVILLE—Though the actual dance competition took place Thursday night, Pitt Community College Foundation officials say there’s still time to help them pick the overall winning team from the first-ever “Dancing with the PCC Stars” fundraiser.

According to PCC Foundation Development Director Lynne James, more than 282 online votes had been cast as of Friday morning to select the competition’s grand winner. In addition to votes cast during the event, which are still being tabulated, online voting began in February at www.pccdancingstars.com, she said, and will continue until 11:59 p.m. on March 20. The winning team will be announced the following day.

Each vote costs $10, with proceeds going toward student scholarships and educational activities at PCC. There is no voting limit.

“We are really hoping the public will continue to support the students of Pitt Community College by participating in the voting process,” James said. “Every seven votes that are cast as part of this fundraiser pays for a credit hour of in-state tuition for a PCC student.”

For those who did not attend last week’s event at Rock Springs Center, James said an edited version of the dance competition will begin airing on television this week. Air times are as follows:

This year’s “Dancing with the PCC Stars” event featured seven teams from the community performing a variety of dance routines – from salsa and swing to the waltz and country two-step – in front of a packed house on March 7.

Serving as the competition’s judges were East Carolina University music professor Carroll Dashiell Jr., WITN News anchor Dave Jordan, and Carol Ann Tucker, a well-known singer, speaker and retired ECU faculty member.

Following the performances, the judges determined winners in the following categories:

By their applause, attendees selected the Public Safety Team as the “Audience Favorite” winners.

Sponsored by The Clement Companies, “Dancing with the PCC Stars” also featured a silent auction. Serving as masters of ceremony were Miss North Carolina Arlie Honeycutt and Ernest Silver, worship pastor of Greenville’s University Church of God and president of Silver Consulting Services and Silver Insurance Services.

In the weeks leading up to the event, Chikako Massey, wife of PCC President G. Dennis Massey, served as a dance consultant to the competitors. The Greenville Civic Ballet’s Cherita Lytle served as show consultant.
