Chicagoans are asked to step out for a worthy cause for the Dancing with Chicago Celebrities charity ball on March 8 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, 151 E. Wacker.

Proceeds from the fund raiser will benefit area charities working to fight breast cancer. This year's primary beneficiary of the net proceeds is the Northwestern Memorial Foundation, where funds raised will be directed to an innovative research effort supporting a breast cancer vaccine trial. Additional funds will be directed to grantees of the Susan G. Komen For The Cure Chicagoland Affiliate.

Local celebs scheduled to put on their dancing shoes this year include reporter Stefan Holt (NBC5-Chicago), Miss Illinois Megan Ervin, reporter Michelle Gallardo (ABC7-Chicago) and former Chicago Bears player Anthony Adams, among others. Also slated for the evening are Celebrity Dancing alums Rick Bayless (2006 champ), Val Warner ("Windy City Live" and reporter Kim Vatis (NBC5-Chicago).

The event will also feature a live auction, raffle, food, music and professional dancing performances.

Festivities begin at 6 p.m.; doors open at 7 p.m. To purchase tickets for $175, donate to the cause or to support a celebrity, visit www.amdwcc.org. or call (630) 699-6327.
