Michael Stayer-Suprick Takes the Trophy!

Michael Stayer-SuprickA spectacular night of celebrity dancing highlighted the inaugural Movers & Shakers Gala, a benefit for Lakeland College and the Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra held May 31 at Lakeland.

Michael Stayer-Suprick danced the cha cha and took home the first title, topping a field that included some of Sheboygan County's biggest names. Stayer-Suprick is president of West Shore Industries, specializing in consumer displays and exhibits, and a veteran of service to non-profit organization boards throughout Sheboygan.

This star-studded night featured eight well-known area celebrities in a setting complete with red-carpet glitz, glamour and gourmet cuisine. The celebrities were each paired with a professional dancer, and after months of training they competed to win the support of three professional judges and nearly 500 guests.

Inaugural Gala a Rousing Success

It was a full evening that alternated between celebrity dancing, a multi-course gourmet meal and a number of unique live auction items.

Auction items included the opportunity to build a two-room school in Malawi, Africa, win a spot as a dancer for the 2009 Movers & Shakers Gala, take the podium to conduct the Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra for a piece during their Christmas Treasures concert this December and win dance packages to Buenos Aires, Vienna and Sevilla, Spain.
