AUGUSTA  Realtors, affiliates and friends of the Kennebec Valley Board of Realtors plan to kick up their heels in the ninth season of the Dancing with the Realtors competition and fundraiser on Friday, March 31.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m., followed by a cocktail reception.

The dancers will have trained for 10-plus weeks to compete at this event, which will be held from 6-9 p.m. at Le Club Calumet, 334 West River Road in Augusta, according to a news release from Jill Huard, Surette Real Estate.

The dancers have been learning the cha cha, tango and for the more seasoned dancers, The Viennese Waltz. They will compete for trophies in each category, and one dancer also will be honored with a “most improved” trophy. Their dancing skills will be scored by a team of three judges, two who are seasoned professionals and friends of the event, and the third seat will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

Live and silent auctions also will be held, with all proceeds to benefit the Waterville Area Habitat for Humanity and Western Maine Community Action in Franklin County. In the past eight seasons, more than $150,000 has been raised for charities. This year’s goal is $25,000.

Refreshments will be served throughout and there is also a cash bar. Mike Violette of The Score, Central Maine Sports Radio is co-host. Music for the cocktail reception from 6-7 p.m. will be provided by the Snow Pond Academy for the Arts Jazz Ensemble.
