On Saturday, November 4, our very own Javier Guyton and dance partner Destini Edwards were featured at the CASA event, “Dancing with the Local Stars!” They spent 2 months with Mrs. Redington on Sunday mornings fine-tuning their skills and learning a dance that would wow the audience! Their dance to Hallelujah/Good to Be Alive, which incorporated a variety of dance styles from ballroom to hip hop, brought the entire crowd of almost 800 people to their feet! PHS raised over $7,000 to benefit the CASA program which advocates for abused and neglected children in the Peoria area. The community of Peoria was treated to a fine example of the remarkable things that take place at the Pride of the City every day! Congratulations PSA dancers for another job well done!!!
