Our 11th Annual UNITED Tribute will be held
Saturday, January 28, 2023.
Our signature gala celebrates the year's successes and honors the companies, employees, and community leaders who make it happen. Denton County's most anticipated event features the crowd-favorite Dancing with Our Stars competition showcasing a troupe of community volunteer dancers.
This friendly dance competition is the centerpiece of our UNITED Tribute entertainment. Dancing with Our Stars features fun, well-loved individuals from our community—nominated by you! Their participation helps us raise awareness and funds to serve children, families, Veterans, people experiencing homelessness, and people affected by mental illness.
Our annual gala, UNITED Tribute, celebrates our generous community partners and raises funds to help improve lives in Denton County. The event will take place January 28, 2023, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denton Convention Center.
We are accepting nominations July 1st to July 31st. Complete the form below to nominate co-workers, friends, and family—everyone is fair game!
We are seeking 5 couples and 10 individuals (5 men and 5 women to be randomly paired).
After being notified of their nomination, each nominee MUST accept or decline the nomination no later than Friday, August 5th.
If necessary, the community will vote August 8-15th for 5 couples and 10 individuals (5 men & 5 women). The latter will be paired by random drawing at a Dancer Reveal on Wednesday, September 7th, 2022.
Beginning in September, contestants will attend a weekly dancing lesson with Gladys Keeton, Professor Emeritus of Dance at Texas Woman's University. Practices will be suspended for the holidays, although partners may choose to practice on their own time. Come January, contestants will strut their stuff on the dance floor, and the crowd will vote for one pair to take home our coveted Mirrorball Trophies!
Thank you for your participation!
