Ten (mostly) willing community members will hit the dance floor for the second Stars of Bega Valley Dance for Cancer on Saturday.

The stars have been practicing since August with their dance teachers ahead of the gala event at Club Sapphire.

Last year’s Dancing With the Stars-style event saw eight stars and their dance partners help raise more than $15,000 for Cancer Council NSW’s support and advocacy programs. 

The stars include Janine Ballard, Rose Liddall, James Poso, Taylor McNeil, Debbie Gardiner, Rebeccah Norman, Jodie Dunnage, Don Hassan, Jeremy Fernando and Annette Haigh.

Tickets are available for $55, including dinner, entertainment and a vote in the people’s choice award.
