Dancing with the Stars comes to South Georgia.

Tonight in Tifton the best dancers competed to help raise money for the Alzheimer's Association.

Nine couples took to the dance floor at the U-G-A Conference Center. Saturday's event was co-hosted by WALB's Karla Heath-Sands and Ben Roberts. The festivities included cocktails and dinner.

"Alzheimer disease is something that affects everyone, and it's a disease that people are finally talking about years ago they were kind of embarrassed about it and didn't know a lot about it but its a very serious disease and it affects everyone," says Development Director Dan Phillips.

They raised more than 110 thousand dollars .Star Haley Clark was the judges choice winner and Star Ray Cross won the People's choice award.
