SwingShift and the Stars is an inventive performance competition, but more than that, it is a platform for area nonprofits to gain awareness, foster new relationships and raise much-needed funds for their organizations. This season, 8 nonprofits with the support of their business champions and local celebrities will join in on the fun. 100% of your donation dollars (envelope received at the door) go directly to the organization of your choice. Opportunities for online giving are also available and strongly encouraged throughout the season.

Spark In The Dark / Black Diamond Broadcasting 
Star: Corissa Geer 
Instructor/Lip Sync Star: Guy Dark

Spark in the Dark is an online network for neighbors to directly help each other. Nearly 10,000 members strong, the group allows members to post a need--diapers, a refrigerator, or maybe help with a water bill--and connect with others in the community who can meet those needs. While individual members are the beating heart of Spark, numerous organizations have joined the group as well, to connect with those who could use their services, and get a better pulse on needs in the area. In the past two years, the group has helped meet 25,000 needs, and that number grows each day, minute and second.
