Henson-Onyon dance their way to the top at benefit event
In April 15 Issue
By Derek Aaron
Times Journal Reporter

McKinzie Henson and Coty Onyon were crowned dancing champions this past Saturday night at the Russell County Hospital Auxiliary's third annual "Dancing with the Stars" at the Russell County High School.

The event, which raised more that $1,200, for the auxiliary, was called a success by event coordinator  Brenda Higginbotham.

"I was pleased," she said. "I know there are a lot of things going on with spring break, but we had a good turnout."

Several hundred people showed up to watch the performances by three couples, Henson and Onyon, Tyler Wilson and Jessica Hayes and Josh Hayes and Whitney Lee.

Last year's winners, Greg Hammond and Kim Haydon, also performed a special Michael Jackson tribute to his 1987 hit song "Smooth Criminal."

Jannah Bolin, the nine-year-old daughter of Jason and Ann Bolin of Bowling Green performed two songs during the event.

The dancing competition was judged by Miranda Denney, Sharon Mills and Ginger Colvin, all of Campbellsville. Jeff Hoover served as master of ceremonies for the event while Joey Hoover coordinated the music.

All proceeds collected went to further the services provided daily by the hospital's Auxiliary.

"We just turn it right back in to the hospital," Higginbotham said of the money raised. This fall, the hospital will put out a wish list of items needed and much of the money raised this weekend will go toward filling those needs.

The group provides many important services that enhance the care provided to patients, their family members, and visitors according to the hospital.

They help run the hospital's gift shop in the front lobby as well as the reception desk, among other tasks.

The auxiliary has served Russell County Hospital since 1981. It has around 50 members and is always welcome to new members, Higginbotham said.

She said planning and organizing the "Dancing with the Stars" event was tough but that it was worth it.

"We've put a lot of hours in," she said. "People may not realize it but we'll start planning now for next year."

Higginbotham said she already has promises from five or six people that they will participate in next year's fundraising event.

"Should be a good one again next year," she added.
