SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) -Janna Brown danced with heart Saturday night in support of the Shriner Children’s Hospital.

The fundraiser was held at Cedar’s Banquet Hall in Springfield. The event included refreshments and the opportunity for the public to vote for their favorite dance of the evening.

We spoke with Janna before the show, who said she was proud to be part of such a good cause.

“There is nothing better to do than to help raise funds for the Shriners Hospitals for Children. It’s an incredible effort when you see these children and there are so many of them and you hear so many of their stories, how can you not want to help? ” she says.

Janna has been attending dance classes for ten weeks just for this event, and she did a great job!

Western Mass News also spoke with event co-chair Dorsey Cokkinias, who said this is the third year they have partnered with Shriner’s for the event. She said she was very happy to be part of it.
