The Westside Health Authority, looking to fund a Cultural Youth Center in Austin came closer to that goal Sunday, raising $35,000 at a fundraiser, dinner and dance gala.

WHA hosted “Austin Dances With The Stars” Sunday at the Congress Plaza Hotel. The event included world champion ballroom dancers from Chicago and nationally. Performers included The Unity Dance Troupe, and world champion dancers Gregory Day and Tommye Giacchino of Chicago Dance. More than 250 people attended the event.
