The 2016 edition of Dancing With the Stars of Auburn, dubbed “Hometown Heroes”, was a record setter. More than 400 tickets were sold for the event that packed Motorsports International on Rt. 20 Saturday night. A record number of gift baskets were available for raffles. And three new couples were crowned as the top dancers at the event.
Third place went to Justin Brigham of the Auburn Fire Rescue Department dancing with Sarah Nugent. Second place went to Erik Berg, a teacher at Auburn High, and his sister-in-law Megan Berg. And the grand prize went to Matt Carlson, Assistant Principal of Auburn Middle School dancing with Kate Stanley.
Here are some shots of the winners and a few from the event. Check back this week as we will run additional slideshows and a follow up story from the 7th Annual Dancing With the Stars.
