Red Deer’s Celebrity Dance Off Gala really cut up the rug on Friday.

Donations are still coming in and being tallied but have so far totalled around $400,000, said John Johnston, fund development managers with Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Red Deer and District.

This had already blown the 2014 goal of $250,000 out of the water and surpassed last year’s dance off total of about $300,000.

All proceeds went to the local Big Brothers, Big Sisters charity for the third annual event.

Proceeds from the two previous years went to the Red Deer Hospice Society.
