Do not throw away your shot to see the most exciting event of the year

Because sometimes getting all dressed up and having a great time helping a local organization raise money just isn’t enough of a reason to go out….so let me tell you more about Dancing with the Stars of Casper!

This is the 10th annual event for one of our community’s most entertaining fundraisers. It’s a night where some of our well-known locals show off their dancing skills to raise money for Mercer Family Resource Center. While all our dancers (stars and professionals) have day jobs, they train for months, learning to dance, arranging choreography, designing costumes and perfecting the art of entertainment.

Very similar to the show, you will hear comments and critiques from our celebrity panel of judges. The night starts and ends with both Grand Opening and Finale performances! All this work culminates in an elaborate and fun evening, while guests enjoy a plated dinner, cocktails, and of course the wide variety of enticing live and silent auction packages!

Mercer Family Resource Center holds this event every year because despite changes in funding, the need for our services continue to grow. According to recent Prevention Needs Assessments surveys-

  • More youth in Natrona County (7.06%) report having ever used over-the-counter medication to get high compared to other youth in Wyoming youth (5.03%).
  • Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US, however is the 7th leading cause of death in Wyoming.
  • In 2018, more than half of Natrona County adolescents reported not talking to at least one of their parents about their thoughts and feelings, within the past 7 days of being asked.

Substance misuse, suicide prevention, and family relationships are at the core of what Mercer Family Resource has focused their work on for 50 years! Purchasing a table, biding on an auction item, and attending Dancing with the Stars of Casper contributes to the success of our agency and those in the community that we serve.

If you are unable to attend you can still vote for your favorite couple online to win the People’s Choice Award! Your support helps provide youth substance abuse education, counseling sessions, case management for struggling adolescents, family and parenting classes, youth mentorship opportunities, free community events and more. This work is made possible by community members like you!
