CLAREMORE — With mere days before local celebrities take to the dance floor for a good cause at the Rotary Club’s “Dancing With the Stars” fundraiser, the complete list of contestants, their dance selections, and the charities for which they’re dancing has been released.

Among the remaining celebrity dancers and local agencies for which they’re dancing include:
• Kristen Rohr and Chad Rohr, dancing the California Country Swing to “Country Girl (Shake it for Me)” Chad has been an officer with the Claremore Police Department for six years. Kristen now serves at the Children’s Advocacy Center as the Volunteer Coordinator. 
The Rohrs are dancing for the William W. Barnes Children’s Advocacy Center.
The William W. Barnes Children’s Advocacy Center was established in 2001 to reduce the trauma to child abuse victims in Rogers, Mayes and Craig counties. They are accredited by the National Children’s Alliance and are the only Children’s Advocacy Center for the 12th District Attorney’s district. The Center partners with child welfare departments (DHS) and local law enforcement agencies and coordinates the services needed by child abuse victims and their non-offending caregivers. Services provided by the Center are free and their leased facility is safe and child friendly.  
• Barry and Madeline Clark, dancing Jive & Hip Hop to “Dancing Queen” and “Party Rock Anthem”
Barry and Madeline Clark are a father-daughter team representing Tri-County CASA, their selected charity. Barry works as the Director of Open Innovation at Northeastern State University in Broken Arrow. Madeline is a sophomore at Claremore High School where she is on the varsity dance team and is also on the Superintendent’s Honor Roll. 
Tri-County CASA is a court appointed special advocate program that makes trained community volunteers available for judges to appoint to speak on behalf of abused and neglected children in our area courts. CASA volunteers have one goal in mind for each child to whom they are assigned: a safe, permanent, nurturing home - as quickly as possible.
