Although the weather may have prevented stars from being seen in the sky, local stars could still be spotted at the downtown Marriott hotel in Lexington Saturday night.

ABC 36's Tom Kenny and Christine Winter were emcee's of the "Dancing With the Lexington Stars" contest, which featured talented acts from the community, including WTVQ's Belinda Post.

Lauren Gawthrop, who co-anchors "Good Morning Kentucky" and ABC 36's noon show, weighed in on the judge's panel.

All the money raised from the event went to two worthy causes: the "Surgery on Sunday" group, which offers outpatient surgery to those in need, and the Lexington Rotary Club Endowment Fund.

If you missed the competition or the segment featured during Saturday's broadcast, you still have a chance to catch dance fever.

A one-hour special of "Dancing With the Lexington Stars" will air on ABC 36 on Sunday, June 1, at 7pm.
