It was a magical night at Atlanta's Buckhead Theatre for EDIN's - Eating Disorders Information Network's 2017 Celebrity Dance Challenge. Fashioned after shows like Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance, the annual event brought together Atlanta's top celebrities and professional dancers for a night to remember. Hosted by Christi Paul of CNN & Paul Milliken, Road Warrior of FOX 5’s Good Day Atlanta, the event raised over $132,000 to become EDIN's most successful event to date. Funds raised from the Celebrity Dance Challenge go on to help EDIN to present to various communities and age groups in Georgia, from elementary students to medical professionals. And this year, we were proud to have our very own Creative Director, Shane Smith, participate with a samba performance with Brazilian born beauty guru, Milly Marques of Sweet Peach Wax & Sugaring Studio in Buckhead. Check out the highlights from this year's event below. For info on how you can help EDIN reach your community, visitwww.MyEdin.org. And be sure to LIKE or SHARE on Facebook or Twitter! Obrigado. :)
