The 6th annual Lowcountry Dancing with the Stars Oxygen Ball set a record with more than $265,000 raised towards the mission of the American Lung Association.

On May 9th, local celebrities paired with professional dancers from the Fred Astaire Dance Studios for the dance competition at the Charleston Marriott. The five featured celebrity dancers included: Elizabeth Colbert-Busch, Director of Business Development at the Clemson University Restoration Institute, Rob Concannon, President of the South Carolina Stingrays, Shelley Hochman, Partner at the Facial Surgery Center, Michael Scarafile, President of Carolina One Real Estate Services, and Catherine Stuhr, Vice President of J. Henry Stuhr, Inc.

The Oxygen Ball is the American Lung Association in South Carolina's largest fundraiser and supports its mission of saving lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease. The Lung Association is committed to the prevention and cure of lung disease in all forms. This organization strives to educate individuals on the importance of living a smoke free life as well as improving the air we breathe.

After a fierce and close competition, Catherine Stuhr and her professional partner Travis Willert took home the coveted championship disco ball trophy.

The beginning of the evening featured a silent auction, before guests enjoyed a gourmet dinner followed by a live auction. In addition to the dance competition, alumni dancers Laura Zucker, Gretchen Penney and Jennifer Snowden performed.

Vibra Hospital of Charleston, The InterTech Group Foundation, The Facial Surgery Center of Charleston and Josh Levkoff Private Jeweler partnered with the Lung Association as top sponsors to put on the event.
