It’s the biggest night of the year for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erath County.

The organization that pairs area children (littles) with adult mentors (bigs) will host Dancing for the Stars tonight at the Tarleton State University Ballrooms.

Tonight’s black-tie affair will begin at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails followed by a three-course steak dinner.

Then the action begins when five local couples dance for that coveted mirror ball trophy.  

“We have five great couples taking part in this year’s event,” said BBBS Regional Executive Director Sarah McNeal-Weaver. “It’s going to be a night to remember and a lot of fun.”

Dancers include Randy and Renee Thompson, Ricky and Brittany Thurman, Monty and Holli Stone, Craig and Amber Parks and Preston and Makayla Hart.

“Our theme this year is ‘Rock this Town,’” Weaver said.  

The E-T will be there to cover the sold-out event. For photos, video and more stay with the E-T’s Facebook page tonight and visit us online at to find out who wins the big event.
